A cold front will move through early Wednesday morning, shifting our winds to the north and bringing scattered showers and t-storms through early in the day.

Mid-level moisture from the southwest will feed into the front which will result in pockets of heavy rain in our inland areas with the best chance from 5 AM to 9 AM before the showers start tapering off through early afternoon.

Rainfall amounts could reach 1-2 inches inland while coastal areas could be left with much lower amounts of under a tenth of an inch.

Temperatures will drop into the 60s Wednesday night, reaching the upper 70s to near 80 Thursday with a northeast breeze.

Lingering moisture could cause few light showers to develop Thursday. We'll start heating up from Friday into the weekend, reaching 90 by Sunday.

Our next cold front is expected to move in around midday Monday, bringing a chance of rain and cooling us back into the 70s by Tuesday.

Tuesday Night: Scattered showers and t-storms moving in from the northwest after 2 AM with temperatures in the low to mid 70s. Some of the t-storms could produce heavy rainfall before daybreak inland.

Wednesday: Early morning showers and t-storms, tapering off to a breezy, mild afternoon with highs in the 70s. Northerly winds will gust up to 25 mph early in the day.

Wednesday Night: Mostly cloudy with lows in the upper 50s far to mid 60s inland and upper 60s at the coast with a light northerly breeze.

Thursday: Partly sunny and mild with highs in the mid to upper 70s and a slight chance of showers.

Friday: Partly cloudy and warm with highs in the mid 80s and east breeze under 15 mph.

Weekend: Partly cloudy with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s and southeast winds increasing to 18 mph Sunday.
