Steam leads to more storms

Good Sunday, everyone. Our final day of April is wrapping up on a very summer-like note with steamy temps and more storms. Some of these storms may become strong or severe this evening into tonight.

That action is along and ahead of a slow-moving cold front, with a lot of steamy air ahead of it. Highs will be back into the middle and upper 80s with high humidity levels. This will help fuel a hefty line of storms in the west, that rolls in here this evening and tonight.

Damaging winds, hail and torrential rains are possible with this.

The weather to start Derby week looks much better than the way we will end it. A big upper level low will spin into the region and may hang around into Kentucky Derby Saturday:

Those can be nasty weather makers with cool temps, gusty winds and the potential for rounds of decent rains.

Some of the computer models are spitting out some very heavy rains across the region over the next 7 days:

Keep in mind, that includes what falls out there today. Timing and placement of heavy rains will vary greatly during thunderstorm season. Always keep that in mind.

Make it a great day and take care.
