Showers and thunderstorms track east this morning, then becoming more humid with some sunny breaks developing

Today’s Weather Synopsis…

A warm front will bring a round of showers and thunderstorms as it advances eastward across the region this morning. The storms will produce frequent lightning, heavy rainfall, and perhaps some gusty winds before some clearing develops this afternoon with increasing humidity. An approaching disturbance will track south of the region later this evening into tonight, with more showers and thunderstorms arriving from the southwest overnight.

The cold front will then approach the region into Monday, bringing more widespread chances of showers and thunderstorms as an area of low pressure develops along the front and tracks northeast, but considerable cloud cover should limit the coverage of any stronger storms due to reduced instability as long as the low tracks south and east of the region. If the low were to track further north and west, then much of the region could become firmly entrenched into the warm sector therefore increasing the chance for a few strong to severe thunderstorms. Conditions will then begin to dry out by later Tuesday and into mid-week as the cold front advances east of the region and below normal temperatures arrive with lower humidity levels.
