Severe Thunderstorm Watch Until 7:00pm
Thursday’s Forecast High: 88°F, Tonight’s Forecast Low: 68°F
Showers and thunderstorms have been developing across the area since this morning. The storms continue to develop southward, and at the moment, we are just seeing garden variety storms – nothing severe. However, there is the potential for severe storms, this afternoon and evening, especially in our southern communities. A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH is in effect for Fillmore, Houston, Winnishiek, Allamakee, Crawford, Vernon and Richland Counties until 7:00pm. The main hazards from these storms will be damaging winds, large hail and heavy rain. Although, an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. Due to the threat of severe weather, today is an ALERT DAY.
The chance of storms will stick around early tonight, and then they’ll taper off after midnight. Lows will be in the mid to upper 60s. We could see some fog develop toward Friday morning.
Friday looks dry and sunny, but warm! Highs will be in the upper 80s to 90 degrees.
A disturbance will bring the chance of a few showers and storms on Saturday, but there will be plenty of dry time. Highs will be in the mid 80s.
Cooler and less humid Sunday, but it will be short-lived so enjoy it! Highs will be seasonable in the low 80s.
Temperatures will increase heading into next week with highs in the mid to upper 80s.
Most of Monday looks dry, but then a chance of thunderstorms will return for Monday night and into Tuesday. There will then be small chances of showers and storms through the rest of the week.
Have a great afternoon and stay weather aware! –Michelle Poedel
