Mild & Muggier Tonight, Slight Chance Of Storms Late -Bill Graul
ALERT DAY Thursday: Chance Of Strong To Severe Storms
Tonight’s Forecast Low: 71F / Thursday’s Forecast High: 85F…
It was a warmer day across the region and humidity increased as well. This will make for a mild and muggier night tonight, with partly cloudy skies. It will be breezy as well. Slight chance of showers and t-storms late tonight into part of Thursday morning, especially north and east.
ALERT DAY Thursday: The chance for storms Thursday morning could play a key role in the chances for additional showers and storms Thursday afternoon and evening. Like this past Sunday, if we stay cloudy for much of the day… then the severe risk would be lower. If we get into several hours of sunshine and see temps well into the 80s, then the atmosphere will cook up pretty good and the chance for strong to severe storms will exist across the region. A cold front will approach from the northwest and be the trigger for scattered showers and storms during the afternoon and evening hours. If storms do end up going strong to severe, large hail and gusty winds would be the main threats… along with brief heavy rainfall. Be sure to stay extra weather aware… just in case.
That front will sag south across the region Thursday night and then it could stall to our south on Friday. As a result, expect the chance for scattered showers and storms to persist Thursday night and we could see more storms Friday if the front remains close enough to our area. In fact, the front could remain close enough to keep the chance for scattered showers and storms in our forecast right through the weekend as well.
Looking Ahead… Just isolated t-showers look possible at this time for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday then looks dry with partly cloudy skies. Temps next week will be seasonably warm, with highs in the low-mid 80s and lows in the low-mid 60s.
Have a good night and keep an eye on forecast updates for Thursday. -Bill Graul
