Sunday Afternoon Update

Good afternoon, everyone. Our hit and run clearing is about to be replaced by another round of showers and storms moving in from the northwest. That could bring a strong storm or two this evening, with a greater threat for big boomers lurking later this week.

Temps hit the 70s ahead of a cold front dropping in from the northwest. Showers and storms increase this evening, with gusty winds and hail possible in a few of the storms…

Leftover showers linger across the east on Monday, with temps coming down into the upper 60s for many. Winds will continue to be gusty.

Tuesday turns much milder with temps making a run at 80. Humidity levels will also start to spike as we track another front our way by late Wednesday into early Thursday. This may produce strong to severe storms in our region…

That front may become more west to east across the region later Thursday and Friday, allowing for waves of thunderstorms to push through…

Those storms will have a healthy temperature gradient to work with. The GFS is pushing the 80s through the Ohio Valley with 40s to the north of that. At the same time, it has 100 degree temps from Texas into western Kansas…

That gradient should eventually crank a big storm system across the plains that would roll our way…

You will also notice the model developing another subtropical looking system off the southeast coast. This would be the second such system this month and may be offering us some clues as to the start of the hurricane season.

Enjoy the rest of your day and take care.

    Thanks Chris. You are not talking about solid rain every day stuff I hope. This means we should see sun at some times as well, right? But at least you are not talking about cold temps…. sort of like tropical weather. Have a good Sunday everyone. And thanks for keeping us informed Chris. Appreciate you!
