SHOWERS & STORMS LIKELY AT TIMES TODAY; MORE RAIN LATER THIS WEEK… While severe weather is not likely today, showers and a few thunderstorms ARE expected on this Monday. High temperatures will again be near the 80 degree mark in most spots. More details about today are below. Tuesday and Wednesday look mostly dry and quite warm before another rain event on Thursday that could feature a few storms. Cooler air is on the way for the weekend. Let’s look at details…
STORMS THIS AFTERNOON & THIS EVENING… The latest high-resolution model guidance suggests that coverage of showers and thunderstorms will ramp up throughout the day. Rain is likely to be falling in most spots around 5PM this evening. Keep the rain gear close by throughout the day. We remain in the “General Thunderstorms” zone according to the latest convective outlook issued by the Storm Prediction Center, meaning severe weather is not expected today. High temperatures will peak in the 78-80° range by 3PM.
MOSTLY CLOUDY TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY… Rain chances will be very low on Tuesday and for much of the day on Wednesday. Mostly cloudy skies are expected each day. High temperatures will peak in the mid- to upper-70s.
MORE RAIN BY THURSDAY… Showers and storms will increase in coverage across our region again on Thursday as a cold front approaches from the northwest. It’s too early to know specifics, but there could be a low-end, marginal risk of strong storms on Thursday. We’ll keep you posted about details in the RedZone Weather app.
COOLER WEEKEND AHEAD… One reason we have an increase in rain/storm chances on Thursday into the early part of Friday is because a strong cold front will be approaching the area from the northwest. Cooler air will move in late Friday. Overnight lows by Saturday morning will be in the 40s with high temperatures likely to be near 60° on both Saturday and Sunday.
UPDATES TODAY IN RZW APP… I’ll have radar updates as needed today in the RedZone Weather app. Be sure to set up app alerts by visiting the Alerts tab (lower right corner) once you have the app downloaded to your iOS or Android device.
