Great weather for Tuesday, with an unsettled Thursday on the horizon

/ April 20, 2020 at 10:42 PM

Tuesday will be a mostly sunny day in-between cold fronts. Winds will turn from the south to the southwest throughout the day, allowing temperatures to swing from the mid-50s to around 80° in the afternoon. No weather hazards to speak of for Tuesday, thankfully — business as “usual” (by 2020 standards, anyway).

Next thunderstorm chance arrives Thursday

After a dry cold front swings through overnight Tuesday, we’ll have a much cooler Wednesday as high pressure briefly builds in from the west. This is going to be short-lived, though, as the fast flow aloft brings in another storm system for Thursday into Thursday night, driving a cold front into the area. There is the potential once again for a few stronger thunderstorms associated with the cold front. The usual timing and track issues with the front and its associated low pressure apply, but it does appear that the outcome will at least be another round of showers and thunderstorms (and perhaps another 1-3 inches of rain). Storms look to depart the area by midday Friday with clearing skies and temperatures rising into the low 80s with downslope flow in the wake of the storm system.
