After a hazy, hot and humid first half of the day, a cold front will move in from the west with showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. Some of the storms could be strong to severe with gusty winds, heavy downpours and frequent lightning. In fact, the SPC has much of the area in the "slight risk" category for severe weather this afternoon. As of writing this there is still no talk of a severe thunderstorm watch but one may be posted later in the afternoon.
Behind the front, showers will persist into the early morning hours on Thursday before skies clear through the afternoon as the humidity drops. This will set the stage for another nice stretch of weather with sunshine and low humidity, which will last into the first half of the weekend.
Have a great day!
