Good Saturday, everybody. We have a very warm day taking shape, but spring thunderstorms are about to take over. These boomers may be strong or severe as we head into Sunday and Monday.
Temps out there today rebound into the 70s with a mix of sun and clouds. Winds will be a little gusty, but this is a pretty nice day for the entire region.
A storm system rumbles our way over the next few days and will bring rounds of showers and thunderstorms. These storms could be severe, especially Sunday. The Storm Prediction Center has much of the region in the severe risk for tomorrow:
Damaging winds, large hail and a few tornadoes will be possible.
In addition to the severe potential, heavy rainfall is a good bet and that may lead to some local high water issues.
This is a very stormy pattern taking shape over this spring and it’s one that will likely bring above normal rainfall. The Euro Ensembles show us above normal for the next 2 weeks…
If we expand that out through the middle of May, we find a more robust signal for above normal rainfall across the entire eastern half of the country:
Have a great day and take care.
