COLD FRONT COMING
This heat is short lived - a cold front is due here Wednesday ending the brief blast of heat and delivering anohter batch of mild air for late July. Afternoon temperatures will lower to the upper 70s and lower 80s Wedneday with humidity falling throughout the day.
Storms chances will rise with possible storms moving into northwest counties after 12 AM. Some strong storms are possible and may hold together to reach city pre dawn. I'm posting below the NWS HRRR forecast radar at 1 AM Wednesday morning.
A cold front passes tomorrow with next flare up of storms possible. Winds shift in wake of front with new surge of cool and less humid air to end the work week.
A new surge of cool still on track to close out this July with deep trough or dip in jet stream early next week.
