A few rain showers this morning, but thunderstorms may produce gusty winds and heavy downpours this afternoon.

Showers/T-Storms this Evening
Lows: Upper 60s
Wind: SW to NE 5-10
Tomorrow Morning:

A few showers across the area this morning, but many of us just dealing with low clouds and high humidity. That changes this afternoon when thunderstorms become more widespread and have the potential to dump heavy rain.  The rainfall forecast today from the Weather Prediction Center (NOAA) shows a bullseye over our area.

  I'm not too concerned about flooding at this point, but some urban flooding is possible in the heavier storms.  A few storms may also produce damaging winds.  The cold front may linger close enough to us that Friday may feature a few showers as well, but overall, less humid and slightly cooler air moves in starting tomorrow.  It should last into the weekend before we warm up again next week.
