To start off our Tuesday, it's dare I say, warm out, with temperatures in the mid 50s to mid 60s. We will start off the day mostly cloudy though. Warmer temperatures are expected today with breezy southwest winds, gusting up to 20-22 mph at times. As we go through the day, the cloud cover will gradually decrease leading to at least some partial sunshine. So highs today will be in the mid to upper 70s. Which is typical for late May/early June. A weak cold front will move through the Tri-States this evening and tonight. Right now, I am not anticipating any rain or thunderstorms from this front. Tonight will be mostly clear with lows in the mid 50s. Unseasonably warm temperatures are expected again tomorrow, in the mid 70s. We'll see some nice sunshine tomorrow, however a strong cold front will drop through the area tomorrow afternoon and evening. This front will bring us the chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms. Most of which will be near or just behind the front. All of the rain will move out the Tri-States by tomorrow night. Much colder air will filter in behind this cold front though, so lows tomorrow night will be in the low 40s. We'll see some nice sunshine again on Thursday, however it will be much cooler and breezy. Highs will only be in the low 50s with lows near freezing. Unseasonably cool temperatures will continue into Friday, with highs in the low 50s. A wet weekend is looking possible as the chance of showers returns starting Saturday. More showers will be possible Sunday afternoon and night as another strong cold front moves through our area.
