Warm Temps Before Storms Return

Good Monday, everyone. Here’s hoping you had a great Easter Weekend! Temps are on the rise over the next few days, but thunderstorm chances aren’t too far away. Those chances look to increase for the middle and end of the week.

In the near-term, skies are mostly sunny today as thermometers warm into the 70s.

Tuesday looks similar, but there is a small chance for a late day shower or thunderstorm going up. This is just ahead of a weak cold front dropping in from the northwest…

That front will combine with a slow-moving low to our south, to give us scattered showers and thunderstorms from Wednesday through Friday…

It’s interesting to note the GFS Ensembles and European Ensembles are both showing drier than normal conditions around here for the next 2 weeks…

I will believe that when I see it, but it’s one of the very few times in the past several years we have seen a drier than normal pattern on the models. You will also notice the much above normal rain in Texas and Oklahoma. The wetter those areas get, the more that’s likely to temper any summer heat that can form.

Have a great Monday and take care.
