For part of the viewing area today will be slightly warmer than anticipated. Temperatures in the north look right on target for projected highs in the upper 70s to 80, but temperatures are already in the 80s in the south (forecast 82-84), so a tweak upward is needed to 84-88.
At 1 p.m. it is already 80.6 at WLFI with a dew point of 62.
Weak surface cold front, shortwave & weak vort max will pop a few widely-scattered showers/storms in the area today.
Coverage will only peak at 20-30%, so many of you will stay dry. However, I would not rule out an isolated severe hail/wind producer given the cold pocket upstairs & a dry layer that may enhance a couple gusts.
Any showers/storms will exit this evening & crisp, cool conditions with clearing skies will move in. Low temperatures are headed for 53-59 with 77-83 tomorrow.
The slightly better coverage & severe potential will run along & south of I-70, where surface instability will be greater.
