Forecast Discussion 4/28 3:38 PM

After a cold start to the day temperatures made a nice recovery. The big chill will return tonight, with lows in the middle 40s. This may be the end of the colder weather as May is just around the corner. In fact, over the next few days the daytime temperatures will be warming in the low to middle 80s.

High pressure will become more centered east of our area over the next 48 hours. We will enjoy a bright sunny sky tomorrow, with increasing clouds on Friday. A strong southerly flow will bring increasing amounts of moisture, with scattered showers and thunderstorms possible. The shower and thunderstorm activity will flare-up again on Saturday and some storms may be strong or severe.

A cold front will drop into the state on Sunday and stall out, a common setup around here during the late spring season. This will set the stage for an organized rain event late Sunday and into Monday. In fact, there may be some very heavy rainfall in the mix late Sunday. According to the latest data, the front will linger in the area on Tuesday and this will set the stage for additional wet weather. In summary, plan of a good chance of rain and thunderstorms Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. A stronger surface low should materialize along the front by Wednesday and this should guide the front south of our area. We will have a chance for rain early on Wednesday, with wet weather shifting south of our area by Wednesday afternoon. Stay tuned for more details!
