Wednesday morning, our temperatures started out in the low 50s. By the afternoon, we
reach the mid 70s with partly cloudy skies. These mild temperatures and dry weather
will only last so long before normal summer-like conditions return. Overnight, lows are
chilly again in the mid 50s.

Starting with Thursday, we inch back to near normal conditions with highs near 80
degrees and a few pop up showers and storms in the afternoon. Drying out overnight and
dropping back into the low 60s.

Friday and Saturday are gorgeous with mostly sunny skies and high temperatures in the
mid 80s.

A warm front approaches Sunday afternoon bringing us scattered showers and storms. The
two main ingredients for storms are moisture and lift. What this front does is that it carries
in warm moist air from the Gulf of Mexico, and creates lift since hot air wants to
rise. This moist chunk of air continues to sit over us on Monday, allowing the chance
for more storms. Highs in the mid to upper 80s both days.

Next, a cold front moves in Wednesday extending our rain chance. This is because a
cold front undercuts this warm moist air ahead of it and forces it to rise. This
creates thunderstorms and showers. Highs in the mid 80s. This is more like a
summertime weather pattern. Mother nature is bringing back normal weather
conditions!
