Good morning and happy Monday! Hope y’all had a great Easter weekend. Spring weather is here and it seems to be staying for a little bit. We will have warmth, showers and maybe a severe thunderstorm.
Today is starting off a tad chilly, with temperatures in the low 40s.
We have a slight chance of rain today with temps reaching the mid-50s and clouds in the sky. The easterly wind will shift south this evening which will cause shower chances to increase, Tonight will be relatively warm, with a low temperature in the lower 50s. Thunderstorms are possible overnight and lots of precipitation will result from them.
Tuesday might start off with a thunderstorm and then rain for the rest of the morning. Breezy winds will be blowing in a cold front as Tuesday night approaches. Along with the cold front, thunderstorms and rain will come with it.
Besides the rainy weather, the temperature will reach a high in the mid-70s! You might want to ditch the umbrella for the day and bring a raincoat; wind speeds may be as high as 35 mph.
And, as you might expect, with very warm temperatures and a strong cold front comes the possibility for severe thunderstorms. We certainly have that on the table tomorrow. The SPC has placed much of our region in an Enhanced Risk (3/5 ranking) for severe storms.
The primary time appears to be between 6 and 9 pm Tuesday night. Damaging winds, lightning, and an isolated tornado are the highest threats.
Tuesday night’s cold front is going to decrease temperatures for Wednesday. A high in the upper-40s, maybe low-50s is expected for our area. Wednesday will bring dry conditions and some clouds in the sky. The low temperature will dip into the low-30s, which may cause some frost on your car Thursday morning.
Rest of the Week
The rest of your week will warm up a little bit and be sunny for the most part, soak up the sun when you can. Rain chances seem to increase on Friday night and Saturday morning. The days will be warmer, but the nights will be a bit chilly.
Spring is here, and I hope it’s here to stay. We will have warmth, showers and maybe a thunderstorm or two. You know what they say; April showers bring May flowers.
