A cold front will push through later today, bringing the chance for storms this afternoon, and cool temperatures to end the work week.

This Afternoon: Partly Cloudy, Storms Possible

Highs: Mid 90s | Wind: SW 4-8 m.p.h.

Overnight: Mostly Clear

Lows: 60s | Wind: NW 5-10 m.p.h.

Thursday: Mostly Sunny, Cooler & Less Humid

Highs: Mid to Upper 80s | Wind: NW 10-15 m.p.h.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect until 10pm tonight. Large hail and damaging wind gusts will be the primary threats in any storms.

Big changes are on the way as a cold front approaches from the west. Highs should reach the mid 90s with dew points in the 70s making for heat indicies over the 100 degree mark once again. Strong storms are possible this afternoon as the front passes through the region. Some storms may contain large hail or damaging winds.

Tonight, temperatures will be cooler in the 60s and dew points will really fall behind the front into the 50s, making for a much more crisp start to the day on Thursday. Highs should reach the mid to upper 80s on Thursday under mostly sunny skies, but without the humidity it will actually feel comfortably warm. Friday, temperatures will reach the mid 80s and conditions will continue to be quite pleasant.

Saturday and Sunday, temperatures should reach the mid to upper 80s under partly cloudy skies. There also appears to be a slight chance for thunderstorms each afternoon.
