More Storms Start The Week

Good Monday, everyone. It’s another steamy day with rounds of showers and storms rumbling across the region. This action continues to be ahead of another deep trough swinging into the region for the middle and end of the week. That will bring more in the way of cooler than normal temps.

Scattered showers and storms show up again today and a few could be strong. Locally heavy rains can cause local high water issues to develop. The SPC is highlighting western Kentucky for another low-end severe risk…

Here are your storm tracking toys…

It’s certainly not going to rain all day by any means. Outside of any storm action, temps will be on the steamy side, but below what we had over the weekend.

A strong cold front works across the state late Tuesday into early Wednesday. Widespread showers and storms accompany this front with some leftover stuff on Wednesday…

Temps come way down behind this front and we should have a couple of days with highs in the 70s. Woot!

The numbers do get back to normal summertime stuff to start the weekend, but another cold front is likely to drop in from the northwest. That brings additional rounds of showers and thunderstorms to the region. That’s a setup that looks to take us into early July. The Euro Ensembles show this through 4th of July weekend…

As a matter of fact, the European Weeklies show us with above normal rainfall through the first two days of August…

That would be a pattern where it would be hard to sustain any kind of real heat around here.

One note about the suite of European Model runs, from the operational model to the weeklies, they are now firmly biased warmer than normal. They cannot see cooler than normal temps until it’s literally right upon us now.

Make it a great day and take care.

    Thanks Chris, Yesterday evening we had another “garden variety” thundershower which brought 0.62 inches of rain. We are now catching up after a dry spell earlier in the month.

    It’s going to be an active weather evening here in the Chicago area, with a Severe Thunderstorm Watch in effect until 9 PM. Several strong storms are moving in from the west and southwest, and there’s already been a small cluster of strong storms that affected the west and NW suburbs of Chicago.
