Today will feature morning sun becoming obscured by afternoon clouds as a cold front approaches. Look for temps currently in the 50’s north and 60’s south to warm up to around 70 north and around 80 south by this afternoon. Clouds will be on the increase from NW to SE this afternoon ahead of the front and the clouds will be accompanied by the chance for showers and storms. Some of the storms could be strong to severe and we’re under a marginal risk from the SPC for that reason. Moisture today is quite limited so this won’t be a heavy rain event, but rather more of a wind event as mid/upper level winds are quite strong. Showers and storms will roll offshore by the beginning part of tonight.
Gusty NW winds behind the front will usher in cool air for tomorrow into Friday and frost is even possible in far northern areas Friday morning.
