We’ll remain rain-free for the start of the workweek with plenty of sunshine to go around and a very nice day-to-day warming trend in the forecast that will push our temperatures - both by day and at night - to unseasonably warm levels.
Leftover rain will pull away this morning and quickly taper down as the storm pulls away. In its wake, chilly northerly breezes will ensure we don’t budge beyond the 50s today under mostly cloudy skies.
There could be a shower or thunderstorm at any time Thursday, but the better chance for severe weather, including damaging winds, large hail and even tornadoes unfolds during the afternoon and evening hours as temperatures rebound to the middle 70s.
