Good Saturday, folks. Our soggy summer rolls on with rounds of showers and storms with us to kick off the weekend. This active setup looks to carry us into the first half of next week, with a touch of fall air set to end the week.
A lot of areas have picked up enough rain to cause high water concerns over the past several days, so it won’t take much rain today to cause additional issues. Unfortunately, the showers and storms today can put down quite a bit of rain.
Here are your Saturday storm trackers:
Sunday looks a little better with a partly sunny sky and just some scattered storms. The best threat of storms will be across the southern half of the state.
A very potent storm system develops in the Mississippi Valley on Monday and slides into the Great Lakes, bringing a strong cold front into our region by Tuesday. Showers and thunderstorms increase during this time, with the potential for more high water issues and a few severe storms:
That’s a setup you just don’t see this time of year… You just don’t.
The air behind this front is much cooler than normal, bringing us a taste of mid and late September temps:
Afternoon temps will likely stay way down in the 70s for a day or two:
Have a great Saturday and take care.
