(KFVS) - Good morning, it is Tuesday, November 24.
This afternoon will be calm ahead of a stormy cold front tonight.
Wake-up temps are in the upper 30s to low 40s.
Southerly winds increase today with some gusts up to 20 mph by the afternoon.
This afternoon will be mostly cloudy with mild temps in the mid-to-upper 50s.
More clouds move in this evening ahead of showers.
Late tonight storms will arrive and continue through Wednesday morning.
Heavy rain, gusty winds and hail are possible.
As a cold front pushes through the Heartland Wednesday morning through the afternoon, there is a chance that storms could produce an isolated tornado.
Meteorologist Lisa Michaels says the threat for a tornado might not happen if there is a lack of energy, due to the storms overnight and added cloud cover.
We will be keeping a close eye on the system.
