Clouds will be increasing as a frontal boundary slowly drops in from the north. This may bring an isolated afternoon shower to the region, although it remains uncertain as the models have been showing two different pictures. The latest NAM3 says we don’t get anything:

Temperatures remain on the mild side with a high near 80, and a low near 60.

Thursday/NFL Draft Night

As a storm system passes to our south, chances for rain will be increasing throughout the day with widespread rain possible by NFL draft night. The NAM3 is just coming in range and does show some scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms forming by late afternoon, however there remains a bit of uncertainty as to the timing so be sure to check back for the latest updates.

Severe weather is not expected. Shear too meager; however, watch out for lightning downtown. Word is they’ll ask you to evacuate if lightning is within 8 miles. We’ll be live tweeting this event.
