Good Wednesday afternoon, everyone.

Today is turning out to be much cooler than yesterday with temperatures in the 80’s.  Also, it is a windy day with a humid southeasterly flow of 20 to 40 mph.  These moisture laden winds will help to feed thunderstorms rolling in from the west.  Be aware of storms that pulse strong or severe.  Pockets of hail, high winds, and heavy downpours will be the main concerns.  The tornado threat is low, but not completely absent.  Be ready to seek shelter if a thunderstorm is near your location.  Lightning is always a concern!

The weather should improve for tomorrow with sunshine, breezy southwest winds of 15 to 25 mph, and highs in the 80’s.  Friday will follow suit with sunshine and highs in the 80’s, while much cooler conditions are anticipated over Mother’s Day Weekend.  Temperatures on Saturday and Sunday could hold steady in the 60’s and low 70’s.  Also, a chance for scattered showers could be seen for both days.  Bring on the rain!  We need it!
