.DISCUSSION...

Unseasonably warm weather will continue for a few more days,
peaking on Wednesday with highs well into the 70s. Dry weather is
on tap for Wednesday into Thursday morning. However, a developing
storm system will result in the development of scattered showers
and thunderstorms by Thursday afternoon. Passage of a strong cold
front will result in winds shifting to the west Friday afternoon,
along with a return to more typical temperatures for the weekend.
