One and Done Chilly Shot

Good Wednesday, everyone. We have a brief blast of chill air invading the state today, but the warmer air is going to kick back in by Thursday. This warm up will really spike our temps as we head into a pattern that will also feature frequent rounds of thunderstorms.

Highs today will hit the mid and upper 40s for many with the 50s in the south and west. Freezing temps will be with us to start Thursday, but the afternoon will turn much milder. Readings will hit the low 60s across central and eastern parts of the state, while the west flirts with 70.

From there, temps take off. The GSF Ensembles 5 day average temperature anomalies from this weekend into early next week…

Highs Friday and Saturday likely hit the 70s on a gusty southwesterly wind. That will introduce thunderstorms into the mix later Saturday into Sunday. This is part of a very active setup with storm systems rolling across the country…

This should put areas from the plains into the Ohio Valley under the gun for rounds of strong storms and heavy rains. Look at some of the model rain numbers just over the next 10 days…

This kicks off a likely super active setup of strong to severe thunderstorms in these same areas through April. That also shows up well on the 45 day rain map from the CFS…

Buckle up for a stormy ride, my friends.

Make it a great day and take care.
