Discussion

Powerful thunderstorms pounded parts of the region overnight well ahead of a cold frontal system and those storms put an end to our two-days of excessive heat as temperatures this afternoon should hold in the upper 80's for highs. A cold front will pass through the area today generating another round of showers and thunderstorms and some of the storms can be on the strong side. Much more comfortable air will flow into the region later tonight following the cold frontal passage and Friday's promises to be a nice day to close out the work week. The cold frontal systems stalls close enough to the region this weekend to bring us the threat for showers and thunderstorms on Saturday, but the day should not be a total washout and Sunday is likely to feature plenty of rain-free time. Temperatures from tomorrow through the weekend will be in a very comfortable range for this time of year.
