Scattered Showers, Isolated Severe Threat
A cold front is slowly making moves toward the region today. Temps are warm to start the morning in the low to mid-60s. The front will reach the region by mid-afternoon. Scattered showers and mainly disorganized storms will be likely. However, based on timing with dew points in the 60s, decent instability and strong shear, a strong storm or two will be possible for areas south and east of I-85 after 2 pm. Damaging wind gusts and quarter-sized hail will be possible along. The severe threat will end quickly (by 7 pm) with winds transitioning out of the N/NW tonight.
Cool and Dry End to Week
It will be much cooler and drier with temps falling into the upper 40s overnight. Breezy for the mountains with a chance for frost Thursday morning. Slightly below average temps through the start of the weekend. Highs will reach the low 70s with sunny skies through Friday.
Unsettled Weekend
Looking like we could have some troubles with some slow moving/stalled boundaries this weekend which will bring low-end shower chances Saturday. Highs will remain cool with temps reaching the low 70s under partly cloudy skies. Scattered storms look better Sunday into Monday as temps warm near 80.
