Good Sunday to one and all. We have another powerful storm system targeting the region over the next few days. This storm will bring an increase in showers and thunderstorms, some of which may become severe.
Before the big show arrives, the opening act moves across the state today. This is a fairly weak front, but it will bring showers and gusty winds from west to east:
Low pressure develops across the Mississippi Valley on Monday and quickly heads toward the Great Lakes, strengthening along the way. Severe thunderstorms will develop ahead of this system from the Ohio Valley into parts of the deep south:
All modes of severe weather are possible from late Monday into Election Day morning. That includes damaging winds, large hail and a few torandoes.
Here’s the Monday Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:
The Tuesday Outlook:
The damaging wind threat is especially high, with several models suggesting 60mph+ gusts in our region. The European Model gust forecast is crazy on Monday night:
The storms end very quickly Tuesday morning with gusty winds and chilly temps for the rest of the day.
That cold air continues to sink in as another low pressure develops and skirts by to our south. This may open the door for rain or a mix of rain and snow by the end of the week:
Make it a great day and take care.
