Into Tonight: Wind Advisory, Showers/Storms
We are currently under a Wind Advisory until 7 PM.
Be sure to tie down, or bring inside, any loose objects. The winds could cause them to blow away.
In addition the wind, rain and storms are on the way.
A stronger, main line of storms is currently making its way towards us. Some earlier showers have developed to our west; we could see those by 5 PM. The main line, with the heavier showers, will move in around 7 PM.
HRRR displays the heavier showers moving in at 7 PM with the possibility of a few earlier than that:
We remain in the “marginal” SPC severe weather outlook (think 1 on a 0-5 scale).
The Storm Prediction Center has included us in its damaging winds outlook:
SPC just reduced our probability for damaging thunderstorm winds back to 5%. It was 15% before, and 5% before that. pic.twitter.com/rx92bkFcaT

Main concerns with these storms: damaging winds with a very minimal chance of small hail. Our atmosphere lacks the proper ingredients to make these storms severe, but we could see a few pop-up thunderstorms when the 7 PM line of showers moves through.
There are no tornado concerns at this time.
Expect about 1/2 inch of rain through tonight, maybe a bit less. Rain should be gone by midnight.
Thursday: Partly Sunny, Rain Overnight – Wake Up 44° High 64°
The majority of the day tomorrow should be fairly nice. We may have a few clouds lingering in the AM, but should see sunny skies after. Temps will warm fairly rapidly reaching the 60°s by noon. Winds will remain 5-15 mph with gust up to 20 mph.
Into Thursday night, we may see a quick rain shower in the late evening.
The NAM4 model shows more showers arriving around 10 PM:
We are not expecting any severe storms with these showers.
Friday: Sunny, But Cool – Wake Up 42° High 61°
Some clouds could remain from the overnight hours, but we should see the sun throughout the day. Temps will remain fairly chilly through the day, only reaching the mid-to-upper 50°s. Winds will remain between 5-15 mph with gusts up to 20 mph.
May not be the warmest start to the weekend, but hey the weekend will be here.
Weekend Outlook: Chilly, Possible Freeze Sunday Morning
The rain later today will help clear the air to give us a slight break from the pollen.
