Some isolated showers will be possible for the morning, but much of the day will be cloudy, breezy and warmer. Highs hit the lower 60s in the afternoon.

Expect showers and storms to return by the evening hours ahead of a powerhouse low-pressure system moving in. 

Thursday:

Windy and story day on tap. Severe weather threat continues for Thursday. A marginal risk for severe storms is in place across the state, with all modes of severe weather in play. The highest of those threats will be damaging straight line winds, but an isolated tornado can’t be ruled out.

Nonthunderstorm wind gusts will also be a big story, which could exceed 50 mph at times through the day on Thursday.

Despite all of this, we’ll make a run at 70 Thursday afternoon, which would be the first 70 since Oct. 30.

8 day forecast:

The warm temperatures don’t hang around long. Much colder temperatures move in following Thursday’s front. Highs will hover in the 40s Friday and into the weekend. We’ll see our highs crawl closer to normal levels to start off the new workweek.
