Nice Weather to Begin Work Week

Nice weather will be here to stay for a while across the region. An area of high pressure will move overhead today, leading to fair weather. Highs will warm into the low 80s under mostly sunny skies. Overnight lows will drop into the low 60s under mostly clear skies.

Southwest flow will enter the region on Tuesday. This will lead to highs in the mid 80s and a bit more moisture working into the region. No rain is expected under partly cloudy skies though. A dry cold front will work into the region overnight, shutting moisture supply off to the region. Thus, lows will drop into the low 60s and the humidity should drop overnight.

The cold front won’t really bring cooler conditions to the region as upper level ridging begins to move in. Wednesday afternoon highs will once again be in the mid 80s under mostly sunny skies.

Relief From Heat Comes Sunday

The severe threat seems to have diminished some today. Most of the models now place the stronger storms to the west of the Mississippi River. Highs will approach 90° this afternoon. The Storm Prediction Center has continued to outline the area in a “marginal” risk of severe weather, thus the severe weather threat is not zero.

A cold front will move through the region late tonight and into Sunday morning. This may provide the best opportunity for showers and thunderstorms as lows drop into the upper 60s.

A Nice Sunday Ahead

The cold front will provide some relief from the heat on Sunday as highs top out in the low to mid 80s under partly cloudy skies. Overall, a very nice Sunday is shaping up across the region. Overnight lows will drop back into the low 50s.

Weak high pressure will settle into place on Monday, providing nice conditions once again. Highs will warm into the low 80s under mostly sunny skies.

More Severe Storms Possible Saturday

The region saw quite a few damaging storms yesterday. Fortunately, the most damaging storms seemed to miss the Marshall County area. A calmer day is expected today as highs warm into the upper 80s under partly cloudy skies. Overnight lows will drop back into the low 70s.

Severe Storms Saturday Evening?

Another chance of severe weather exists on Saturday. Dew point temperatures in the mid 70s will make it feel muggy outside. That, combined with highs near 90°, will lead to a highly unstable atmosphere. As of now the Storm Prediction Center has nudged the “slight” risk to the west some, placing us in a “marginal” risk for severe weather.

The above map will likely continue to change over the next 24 to 48 hours. The storms are expected more in the evening and overnight hours. Damaging wind and large hail will be the main concerns.

Nicer Sunday

A cold front will move through the region Saturday night. This will provide a little relief from the heat on Sunday as highs warm into the low to mid 80s under partly cloudy skies.

Severe Weather Possible Today

We have a threat if strong to severe thunderstorms this afternoon. The remnants of an overnight thunderstorm complex to the west will move into the region today, providing sufficient lift across the area for thunderstorms to form.

The aforementioned remnants will interact with hot, moist air. Highs will warm into the mid to upper 80s, while dew points remain oppressive and in the low 70s. This air mass will lead to the development of moderate instability. Instability is the fuel for most thunderstorms.

Numerous thunderstorms should form during the afternoon and evening hours across the region. A couple storms may be possible around noon, but the main line should materialize after 4 PM.

The Storm Prediction Center has outlined the region in an “Enhanced” risk (Level 3 out of 5) of severe weather. Damaging wind and large hail will be the primary hazards, however an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out if storms interact with existing outflow boundaries.

More Storms Friday

Another chance of thunderstorms exist on Friday. Though a widespread severe weather event is not expected. Highs will warm into the upper 80s once again, despite a cold front flirting with the region.

Overnight lows will drop back into the upper 60s. A few isolated thunderstorms may continue into the overnight hours.

Severe Weather to Return Saturday?

A southward diving system will approach the region on Saturday. This will again provide a chance for organized severe storms. Highs will warm into the upper 80s to low 90s. Thunderstorms will likely move into the region during the evening and overnight. As of now, the Storm Prediction Center has placed the region in a “Slight” risk (Level 2 out of 5) of severe weather.

That should wrap up this forecast. Be sure to stay tuned to local media for the latest severe weather information. Have a safe day!

Alberto To Bring Heavy Rains

Subtropical Depression Alberto will make its way northward today and bring heavy rain to the region this afternoon. The remnants of Alberto are forecast to track directly over the region this evening and overnight.

This will produce quite a bit of rainfall across the region. Current forecasts call for 1-3″ of rain across the region. However, some isolated higher amounts will be possible.

Due to the heavy rain forecast, the National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch through Wednesday morning. If you come to a flooded roadway, please turn around and find an alternate route.

With abundant clouds and rain, highs will gradually work into the low 80s. The clouds and rain will keep overnight lows mild and near 70°.

Alberto Moves Out Wednesday

The rains from Alberto should move out during the early morning hours on Wednesday. However, zonal upper level flow will set up across the region, leading to isolated and scattered thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs will warm into the upper 80s.

Storms should wane during the overnight hours as lows drop back into the mid 60s.

Strong Storms Possible Thursday

A small disturbance will move through the region on Thursday. With dew point temperatures in the low 70s and afternoon highs warming to the upper 80s, a few strong to severe storms may form during the afternoon. The Storm Prediction Center has issued a “slight” risk of severe weather (Level 2 out of 5) for the region. This area will likely shift around in the later forecasts.

Memorial Day Forecast

Good Memorial Day morning folks. Be sure to take a moment to remember and thank those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. As far as the weather goes we’ll warm into the mid 80s today. Afternoon showers and thunderstorms will likely move into the region from the southeast. The brunt of Alberto’s impact will come Tuesday and into Wednesday. I’ll have more on that tomorrow.
