Strong southwest winds ahead of a cold front will bump today’s highs back into the mid to upper 80s.
As the cold front moves through this evening and tonight, showers and thunderstorms will form along and ahead of it.
Some of the storms could become strong to severe at times across the northern counties.
The main threats will be damaging winds, lightning, and brief downpours.
After that, expect dry conditions through the extended period and slightly below normal temperatures again before a warming trend this weekend.
