Good Thursday, folks. We are dealing with a mainly dry day, but the next system is ready to roll in here over the next few days. This is going to bring a lot of ugly weather in here and could cause big issues in terms of flooding.
Dry air moves in today, but the next round of rain arrives in the south and southeast tonight into Friday morning. That will bring a renewed threat for high water in those areas. That rain then spreads to the north as our potent plains storm system comes together. Rounds of thunderstorms then kick in Friday night into Saturday as warm air surges in. That warm and unstable air will then crank up strong to severe thunderstorms later Saturday into Saturday night.
All of this action is likely to drop a lot of rain on the region. The numbers from the Euro continue to be scary:
That would be more than enough to produce widespread, significant flooding issues.
This is also going to be a super windy storm that can cause wind damage, even without thunderstorms. Trees will be especially susceptible since the ground is so wet.
We need to change this pattern around and we need to do it in a hurry. Luckily, there is a strong indication for that to happen next week and into March. It’s a much colder look taking hold next week into the following weekend. The Euro has arctic air invading:

Make it a great day and take care.
