The best rain/storm chances will be along/near the front Tuesday night into Wednesday. Temperatures will fall behind the front with 60s and 70s as the high temps and lows in the 40s and 50s.
Whose ready for a cold front??? As advertised from several places there is a cold front coming early next week. The images being shared shows downright cold air but fails to mention that it's LOW temperatures and not the high temperatures. The cold front coming does in fact bring cool air with lows potentially in the mid 40's to upper 50's with our high temperatures in the mid to upper 60's to the upper 70's and low 80's. With this nice cool down also does bring some rain chances and the potential for strong to severe storms. We will continue to watch the forecast and share the available information with you guys.
