The excessive heat that has plagued many of us for the past week or so finally lets up today with the arrival of a cold front. This front is going to have a very dramatic impact on our weather as we will go from highs well above average the past few days to well below average as soon as tomorrow. This front will also bring with it the chance of thunderstorms that could contain locally heavy rainfall. While there is the threat of some isolated severe storms I think some of these storms could put down some decent rainfall due to the storms training along our cold front. These storms will develop near the Tri-Cities and will start to intensify to our east. Behind this front highs in the 60’s and low in the low 40’s will be on the way for our Friday. The weekend looks incredible with temps in the 70’s and just absolutely beautiful fall weather. Another cold front moves through Monday night bringing another chance of thunderstorms and temps back into the 60’s by Tuesday.
