It's not uncommon to see both warmer temperatures and storm threats increase the further we get into the spring season. Fortunately, our upcoming storm chances look to feature more bark than bite.
Tonight plan on mostly cloudy skies with temperatures staying pretty close to 50 degrees thanks to the clouds and a nearby warm front. This warm front will also spark a few thunderstorms overnight into Tuesday morning, however. Small hail, downpours, and some briefly gusty wind are all possible in these storms, but the overall severe risk is quite low.
After the showers and storms move out Tuesday morning we'll see a mostly cloudy afternoon with highs near (or even slightly above!) 70 degrees. After sunset Tuesday a cold front races through the area, bringing us our next round of thunderstorms. These could be a bit stronger, with wind speeds of 40-50 mph, penny-sized hail, and downpours. Even so, the severe risk will be very isolated.
Then much colder air filters in for the latter part of the work week.
