Good Tuesday to one and all. We have some wild weather rolling our way for this first full week of April. Severe thunderstorms and snow showers will be possible within a 24-hour period for much of our region. Nothing like a little crazy for spring breakers. 😉
Tuesday’s weather looks pretty tranquil, with highs nearing 70 under a mix of sun and clouds.
A potent storm moves into the Ohio Valley on Wednesday, creating lines of strong to severe storms racing across the region. The SPC has much of the state in a slight risk for severe storms:
The 3km NAM shows a strong line of severe storms racing eastward across the state Wednesday afternoon and evening:
Ahead of that, highs might make a run at 80 degrees on a strong southwesterly wind.
Behind the front, look out. The weather for Thursday and Friday looks about as nasty as you can get this time of year, with a shot of winter weather moving in. Wrap-around rain and snow showers will be likely as winds gust to 40 mph:
Highs might struggle to get to 40 degrees both days, and I can’t rule out a little slushy accumulation Thursday night across the east. The GFS keeps showing this potential:
That winter shot will be short-lived, with much-above-normal temps returning next weekend. 80 degree highs will be possible by Monday.
Make it a great Tuesday and take care.
