Storms Arriving Late Monday…Sunday Evening Update


Good Sunday evening! It was a chilly start this morning with lows for some in the lower 20’s! Temperatures tried to warm up from that cool start; however, clouds quickly built in around lunchtime across the state. Those clouds blocked out sunshine and kept things cooler for most in the mid to upper 50’s, with a few locally warmer pockets. Tonight, we will continue to see those clouds sticking around which will hold lows a little warmer than usual.

Tomorrow, Monday, will kick off the work week with clouds thickening throughout the day, along with some windy conditions. All that is being caused by an incoming front that will be arriving Monday evening.Before then, moisture returns from the south will allow for the opportunity for a pop-up shower or two across the state. Traveling with the front will be a line of strong storms and showers. The main threat with the storms will be strong winds, around 60 mph. With those stronger winds, the opportunity for a very quick spin-up tornado can not be ruled out, but the opportunity is VERY low. Rain totals will be roughly and inch and a half from Monday night’s rain system.

Early Tuesday rain will have come to an end before wave number two arrives. A secondary wave will develop from the first line that pushed through Monday night. Since the line will be strengthening as it moves though the state, storms will likely be a little bit stronger than Monday night. the threat will remain the same with strong winds and the opportunity for for a quick spin up tornado. Once that line pushes through Tuesday night, showers will linger behind for the day on Wednesday, but temperatures will already be cooling.

After rainy Wednesday, skies will clear out for Thursday and Friday making for a great end to the work week. Highs will also make a return to the average for this time of the year in the upper 50’s to low 60’s.

Next weekend as of now looks to start dry. An approaching low off the gulf in Texas looks to shift northward and delevit the opportunity for rain on Sunday though.
