A Few Strong to Severe Storms on Monday Night

Weather

Monday night will bring some additional showers and thunderstorms to the region. These will begin to die down after sunset, but up until then, we need to keep an eye on any storm that does develop. Temperatures will remain mild as many only drop into the mid 60s. Watch for patchy fog late tonight and early Tuesday.

A level 1 of 5 risk for severe weather is forecast for our region Monday night. The risk remains LOW overall for severe weather, but a few storms could provide strong to damaging wind gusts as they blow through tonight.

Tuesday, more rain is possible through the afternoon hours as a frontal system out to the west of us begins to decay on the edge of our Bermuda High. Again, not everyone will see rain but you don’t want to be caught unprepared if one of these showers and storms passes overhead. Highs remain in the 80s.

Tuesday has a small risk of flooding as the atmosphere will be primed with moisture during the daytime contributing to heavy rain from any storm that does end up forming. Isolated flooding is possible but this will not be a widespread event.

A marginal risk for severe weather will be in place on Tuesday as well. Gusty winds are the primary concern. The threat is pretty low to begin with, but we will watch any storm that does develop. Keep an eye to the sky and an eye on the radar, especially during the afternoon.

Wednesday we see a small dip in our temperatures as overcast skies and rain move in for most of the day. Most will be into the lower to mid-80s by the afternoon. Rain could be heavy at times through the day as well. As of right now, there is not much of a severe threat for Wednesday.

Thursday, it looks like we can squeak out an almost completely dry day to round out the week. The risk of an isolated shower will still linger in the forecast but we should end the day much drier than any other day this week. Highs return to the mid and upper 80s.

Friday showers and storms return as our next low-pressure system begins to move through the Great Lakes picking up steam as it heads south. Rain will be mostly an afternoon issue, but a few showers earlier in the day can’t be ruled out. Highs remain in the mid-80s.

Saturday our low pressure comes crashing down from the north right into our stubborn high pressure that’s been off to our south and east all week long. Showers and storms will be widespread and everyone has a solid chance at seeing rain at some point during the day as the cold front pushes through. Highs remain near the 80s.

Sunday, our front is still hanging out causing widespread rain and storms during the daytime. Highs are a bit cooler back into the 70s as rain and clouds will be limiting daytime heating.

In the extended forecast, rain chances will still linger. If we can remove our Bermuda high we will be able to see things dry out and stay on the milder side. But if our high remains in place or eve gets replaced by a new one, we’ll be cooler and rainier for a while.
