Severe Thunderstorm Watch Until 10 PM Tonight

Tonight’s severe weather threat has ended.

Expect a few showers, and we can’t completely rule out lightning, but expect a quiet night ahead.

Clearing Tuesday Morning, Clouds Remain Through Wednesday

While we could see a few lingering showers in the early AM on Tuesday, the majority of the showers should be pushed to our east and out of our area. Expecting for gradual clearing to occur tomorrow, but the majority of the clouds will remain over our area.

By Wednesday, some more clearing will occur; we may even get some partly sunny skies. Highs will be in the low 70s on Tuesday and in the mid 70s by Wednesday.

If you need to do something outside this week, Tuesday and Wednesday look to be your best bets.

More Showers and Possibly Severe Weather on Thursday

By Thursday, our calm weather pattern becomes interesting once again.

We are monitoring another potential round of severe weather. Both Thursday and Friday appear to be wet.

GFS Loop From 7 AM Thursday Through 1 AM Saturday 

Right now, the Storm Prediction Center has a 15% Outlook for Severe Weather for our area.

This means that there is a 15% probability of damaging winds, large hail, or an isolated tornado occurring within 25 miles of a given location.

Right now there isn’t much of a clear timing. Here is what the SPC had to say about the topic:

“Storms will likely be ongoing Thursday morning from western LA into western KY, and will track northeastward into parts of KY/TN/MS/AL through the period.”

We will be keeping a close eye on this severe weather potential. Over the next few days, more of our short-term models will come into range, which will hopefully provide more insight into the timing, and the severity of these storms.

For now, the severe weather threat appears to be confined to Thursday, with showers hanging around through the day on Friday.

Weekend Looks Pleasant and Clear of Rain For Now

By this weekend, our busy weather pattern looks to relax a bit. Sunny skies should be in place on both Saturday and Sunday with highs topping off in the upper 60s.
