What We're Tracking:
Strong storms possible Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday
Much cooler by Thursday
Cooler, dry and sunny for most of this coming weekend
Clouds will increase this evening and tonight and while many of us will stay dry, a few isolated showers or storms are possible. Lows will fall only into the mid 60s and a few patches of fog are possible.
Monday is complicated; morning sunshine will be important if we are to have severe weather. Morning sunshine and warmth will destabilize the atmosphere, but a few computer models have thicker cloud cover and a few cooling showers early in the day will interfere with the storm's dynamics. Thunderstorms are likely to develop either way, but they'll be stronger with morning sun. We expect storms to develop (not be tracked in) in the early afternoon. Strong winds and some hail are possible. Tornadoes aren't likely, but they're possible.
Mostly cloudy skies and a slight risk of severe weather continues Tuesday and Wednesday.
Temperatures will fall quickly Thursday as highs only reach the mid-60s.
Cool, dry high pressure comes down from Canada Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Skies will be mostly sunny and temperatures will only be around 70 in the afternoon. The high late-May sun angle will make the 70-degree readings much warmer.
