A warm front is lifting north across the Tri-States this evening.
Behind this frontal boundary you can expect breezy and mild conditions overnight with lows into the 50s.
On Tuesday, the forecast looks much warmer with temperatures set to rise well into the 70s with dry weather and partly to mostly cloudy skies at times as well.
The day will bring breezy southwest winds too.
Later Tuesday night, a very slim chance of showers and storms will be around with lows in the mild 50s once again on tap.
After a slim shower or storm chance early in the day Wednesday, a cold front will approach the region by Wednesday evening bringing the likely development of showers and storms.
Some of these storms Wednesday evening will pose a severe threat with a MEDIUM risk of severe storms producing large hail and damaging winds with even an isolated tornado possible as well.
At this point, the threat for severe storms appears to diminish as we head further along into Wednesday night.
By Thursday, somewhat cooler air moves in with continuing shower and storm chances and highs in the 60s.
