FORECAST DISCUSSION:

Good Tuesday morning,

We have got a very messy day ahead of us. Today is a day to remain weather aware, and to make sure you are checking Storm Team 4’s latest forecast periodically throughout the day, as we have the potential for severe weather in two separate waves.


For the morning, expect continued heavy rains, and scattered thunderstorms. We have a lower-end severe threat this morning, mainly during the 7-11 AM timeframe. This threat will primarily be for strong winds and hail, with an isolated tornado threat.

Then, as an area of low pressure and cold front move into the region, we will be looking at a much more elevated risk for severe weather between about 3-11 PM this evening. The this is a level 4-out-of-5 risk for severe storms, meaning we do expect to see them. All risks are on the table with this storm threat, including damaging winds, large hail, flooding, and the threat for strong and longer track tornadoes.

That threat wanes after 11 PM, and we’ll just see scattered activity overnight. For Wednesday, expect some dry time during the morning, with scattered rain showers during the afternoon, and highs dropping back to the middle 40s. We’ll then see a transition to a wet wintry mix overnight and into Thursday.

Expect a scattered wintry mix Thursday, with highs sticking in the middle 40s, and breezy conditions.

We start to clear up Friday, with just isolated shower activity, but we’re still cold, with highs remaining in the middle 40s.

We’ll see more sunshine this weekend, with highs returning to the 50s.
