Good evening! As expected, it was a breezy and warm Wednesday with temperatures rising into the 80s. We will see mostly clear skies early this evening with readings falling back through the 70s. Clouds will begin to increase after midnight ahead of a cold front which will move through Thursday. Expect scattered showers and storms to begin to impact us starting Thursday morning. We will see the chance for some scattered showers and storms through early Thursday afternoon until the front passes. It's possible some of the storms could produce some isolated strong wind gusts. While the front passes Thursday afternoon, it won't go far. By Friday, this front is expected to pivot back north and a warm front. This will start an extended period of unsettled weather in the region. We will see increasing chances of showers and storms moving back into the area Friday with the best chances coming by Friday night and into early Saturday. Waves of low pressure moving along this front will mean more rounds of rain and storms into the weekend and even into early next week. However, no one day is looking like a washout. It's even possible some of these storms could be strong to severe at times. That said, we are looking at many dry hours this weekend as well. Please join me for Local 12 News at 10 on Star 64 and for Local 12 News at 11 with more on the timing of the rain and storms in the days ahead. Have a good evening!
