Scattered Showers & Isolated Storms On Thursday

There is a low severe weather risk on Thursday. Stay weather aware!

Discussion:
A powerful cold front will bring severe weather to the central United States on Wednesday. This front will march eastward, but as it does it will weaken. While it will not totally die out, our severe weather threat is much lower than states to our west. Rain will be scattered and storms will be isolated Thursday afternoon into Thursday evening. An area of high pressure will build in on Friday followed by a weekend stalled front.

Forecast:
Tonight: Mostly cloudy. Low temperatures in the low 60s. Breezy with south winds 10-20 mph.

Thursday: A cold front will bring showers and possible isolated strong storms to the area. There is a marginal risk (level 1 of 5) for severe storms on Thursday. Damaging wind gusts and hail are possible. The tornado threat is extremely low. Mostly cloudy skies with high temperatures in the upper 70s. Breezy with winds out of the SW at 10-20 mph.

Friday: Sunny and dry. High temperatures top out in the mid to upper 70s with winds out of the northeast.

Easter Weekend: There is a chance for showers through Easter weekend, but nothing widespread. A front will stall to our south bringing widely scattered showers to the area on Saturday. Easter Sunday looks mainly dry with a couple of showers possible late Sunday into Monday.

Changes to kick off next week: It will be a much cooler start to the week with high temperatures on Monday only topping out in the low to mid 60s with a few showers and more clouds.

Have a wonderful week!
