Tonight’s Severe Weather Risk

Current Temps and Radar

Tonight – Risk of Severe Storms Continues Overnight 

First things first: we have been under a slight risk for severe thunderstorms today, and that continues tonight.

The main concern with any storms we see will be damaging winds and hail:

The tornado threat is very low:

This Evening & Tonight: Showers and some thunderstorms were increasing in coverage earlier this afternoon ahead of a cold front arriving overnight.

However, things have begun to quiet down after a few strong storms moved through earlier.

Things will remain quiet until the cold front gets here.

Overnight: The line of storms associated with the front is poised to arrive between 12-1 AM:

There are no severe thunderstorm or tornado watches out at this time.

With these systems that move in overnight, our first thought is to assume storms will be weak because they won’t have the heat of the day helping them out (similar to this afternoon’s concern). However, keep in mind that strong winds and some hail are possible, and you will probably be woken up by thunder at some point. Also, put the car in the garage if you haven’t already.

We’ll be watching the line as it gets closer. When something happens, you’ll be the first to know. 

The heavy stuff will be out well in time for your morning commute:

As things progress tonight, this blog will be updated. Check Twitter for updates more often. 

Monday – A Few Post-Cold Front Showers – Wake Up: 60°, High: 68°

A cooler day in store for Monday, with highs only in the upper 60°s. We’ll also have a north breeze, with winds around 12-20 mph.

Most of the rain will clear out with that cold front, though some showers are likely in the later afternoon and early evening.

Things dry out overnight.

Tuesday – Dry for Most of the Day – Wake Up: 45°, High: 70°

Temps will continue to be a few degrees below average on Tuesday, and we’ll stay dry!

The next rain chance doesn’t arrive until late Tuesday night/early Wednesday morning.
