Severe Storms Today; Wet Start Monday
Unfortunately yesterday’s beautiful weather isn’t going to linger into today. Clouds have moved in along with some patchy fog…and scattered showers will develop through the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will still manage to climb gradually into the 50s with a southeast wind 6-12 mph.
The main weather event today will be focused across the Midwest, where severe storms are anticipated. The Storm Prediction Center based out of Norman, Oklahoma has placed parts of Illinois and Indiana, southwest Michigan and western Ohio in a “high risk” zone; damaging wind, hail and tornadoes are possible in these areas this afternoon and evening.
That same disturbance will head our way by early tomorrow morning. While I’m not expecting severe weather here at home…there may be some embedded rumbles of thunder and brief wind gusts over 40 mph in the morning as downpours mix down stronger winds aloft.
The rain comes through during the morning rush, so plan to leave some extra time for your commute tomorrow. The good news is that most of the rain will taper to showers by late morning with decreasing clouds through the afternoon.
Could someone touch 70 tomorrow? Not out of the question! Either way, mid 40s by Tuesday will feel chilly after our mild stretch over the past few days.
