Tuesday Morning: Dodging showers today; Severe weather threat on Wednesday

Weather

StormTracker Forecast…Scattered showers are expected today. Rain chance is around 30-40%. Rainfall amounts will be rather light. Otherwise, it will be mostly cloudy, breezy, and warm with highs in the mid-70s. Rain coverage will increase slightly to around 50% overnight.

Our next storm system will move into the region on Wednesday. The system will trigger showers and storms. Some storms may even be strong or possibly severe, mainly during the afternoon and evening. The Storm Prediction Center has our area under a Slight Risk, which is a level 2 out of 5. Damaging wind and isolated tornadoes will be possible. Periods of heavy rain may lead to nuisance flooding in low-lying areas, but we are not anticipating widespread flooding issues. Rainfall amounts look to be between 1″ and 3″ (between now and Thursday night) with locally heavier amounts. Highest rainfall totals will be east of I-55 and in Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. The cold front is expected to slowly crawl through the area Wednesday evening and move to the east by daybreak Thursday.

Even once the front has passed, moisture will linger. Plan on morning showers on Thursday. Not just that, but it will be much cooler. Morning temperatures will be in the 40s and afternoon highs will only be in the 50s.

Rain and clouds will clear out just in time for the weekend. Friday will be sunny and warmer with highs in the mid-60s. Saturday will start off sunny, but clouds will build through the day ahead of a passing cold front. A few showers will be possible, but most will stay dry. Temperatures will top out in the 70s on Saturday and 60s on Sunday.
