Warm and Storm Again This Week

Good Monday, folks. We have a few showers rolling across the region early today, but the focus is on a busy setup for the rest of the week. It’s one that will really boost our temps, but it will also brings rounds of showers and thunderstorms, some of which could be severe.

As usual, we begin with the precious present. Showers and ongoing to start the day for much of central and eastern Kentucky, this will slowly wind down from west to east this afternoon and evening.

That better weather won’t last long as a more potent storm bowls east across the lower Ohio Valley on Tuesday…

This will bring the potential for strong to severe storms south and east of the track of the low. Here’s where the Storm Prediction Center is highlighting for the best severe potential…

Damaging winds and large hail are the primary players, but a tornado or two can’t be ruled out. In addition to the severe threat, heavy rains may cause local high water concerns.

Wednesday will find brightening skies as thermometers head toward the 60s for many. By Thursday and Friday, we are deep into the 70s and threatening the 80 degree mark on a strong southwest flow. That same flow will combine with another storm system to bring the potential for strong storms and heavy rains…

I will have another update later today. Have a good one and take care.

    We had quite an overachieving snow system yesterday in the Chicago area. The NWS forecast office in Romeoville in the SW suburbs received its largest snowfall of the 2019-20 season, with 4.3 inches of heavy, wet snow (Midway Airport received 3.0 inches, while O’Hare Airport received 2.2 inches). No shoveling or plowing was necessary though, as most of the accumulation was on the gra*s*s*, with very little if any sticking on pavements.

    It was a beautiful snow that stuck to all the tree branches and wires. My power walk yesterday through the forest preserve was very picturesque! The snow is slowly melting today, with temps in the upper 30s.

    The snowfall total at the NWS in Romeoville for the season is now 26.3 inches, still below normal.
