A warm front will push through the region this morning, ushering in a warmer and more humid air mass. As the region pokes into the warm sector and a disturbance approaches from the Great Lakes this afternoon, a round of strong to severe thunderstorms are possible, some of which could contain damaging winds and hail or even an isolated tornado or two if enough instability is attained. A hot and humid air mass will remain in place into the upcoming weekend, before a strong cold front arrives late on Sunday with another round of strong thunderstorms and torrential downpours possible.
