Scattered Thunderstorms Today

Yesterday morning started off on a rather soggy note as an area of moderate to heavy rain moved through very early in the morning. Today will be a different story as we will initially start out with dry skies this morning and then transition into more unsettled weather heading into the afternoon.

A warm front will begin moving northward through the area this afternoon bringing with it not only warmer temperatures with highs in the 70s but scattered thunderstorms likely to develop by the middle of the afternoon. A few of those will likely be accompanied by some heavy rainfall at times. No severe weather is expected today.

Scattered storms will be around this evening before we see a break in the activity overnight. Here’s a look at one model simulation depicting storms in our area after 2pm or so.

A cold front will sweep in from the west on Saturday however the day is initially expected to be dry in the morning and early afternoon. Once we reach the late afternoon and evening the front will progress into the area kicking off a line of scattered thunderstorms. Currently a marginal risk of severe weather exists for Saturday afternoon and evening. Damaging winds appear to be the primary threat with the stronger storms. A windy and warm day with highs pushing well into the 70s to near 80 degrees.

We dry things out just-in-time for Easter Sunday with mostly sunny skies expected and comfortable temperatures, too! Highs will be in the middle 60s.

Our break from the rain continues Monday however more active weather arrives for much of next week with several more chances for showers and thunderstorms. Not each day will be completely wet but do expect rounds of storms to traverse the area from time to time. Our temperature pattern remains mild.
