Expect a dry start out-the-door this morning, under hazy skies and warm temperatures! The morning rush hour will be dry, and a great sunrise is expected. An approaching cold front is on the move and should arrive later tonight. The combination of heat, higher dew points and lift from the front should help kick start much needed rain and storms. Rain will develop after 11 a.m. and move east across the state! The greatest chance of storms will arrive mid to late afternoon (for downtown) which could impact some interstates during the evening rush hour. We do not expect severe weather warnings, but some lighting and stronger gusts should accompany the stronger storm cells.
Showers and storms will linger overnight as the front sluggishly drifts across the state. So rain chances should linger through Tuesday morning. Behind the front, a drop in temperatures will get underway, along with a drop in dew points (less humid). Nice weather will remain through the rest of the week, including the weekend.
