DISCUSSION: Tonight will bring gradual drying. Showers will not be as frequent and we will start to see the skies clear out. Temperatures tonight are going to be fairly mild as many of us drop into the low 50s. We will stay fairly quiet until 7 or 8 AM.
More widespread rainfall will move in for Tuesday. It looks like the chance for showers and thunderstorms will come during the afternoon. Some of the thunderstorms could be on the strong or severe side. A slight risk for severe weather is place for the entire area on Tuesday. Highs will be in the low 70s.
Severe weather is not just possible Tuesday, but Wednesday morning could bring some more thunderstorm chances. While we will dry out a bit late Tuesday night, thunderstorms return for early Wednesday. The severe weather threat wraps up during the afternoon hours. We are still warm on Wednesday with highs in the low 70s.
The biggest concern Tuesday and Wednesday will be gusty winds. Some hail is not out of the question either. The tornado threat right now is pretty low, but remember, straight-line winds could be just a strong and destructive. While the tornado threat is low, it’s not zero. We will keep an eye on all storms that develop on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Thursday will bring some more showers as a cold front passes. Highs will be in the 60s, but fall into the upper 30s Thursday evening. Friday and Saturday look dry, but cooler as highs will only make it into the low and mid 50s. Easter Sunday looks unsettled at this point.
The month of March was generally above average. We are now shifting our attention from snow forecasting to severe weather. Now that severe weather season is arriving, it is important to refresh those emergency kits and have at least two ways to get severe warnings. As always, we’ll be here to keep you informed.
