Morning fog will be giving way to a partly cloudy sky across the area today. There will be another elevated chance of rainfall for today but we’re expecting scattered thunderstorms and showers. Prior to lunchtime the wet weather will be more confined to southeast sections of the area. During the afternoon a passing shower or storm will be possible area-wide. Some of the storms today may be on the severe side, with the main threat being hail and gusty straight-line winds. Be sure to keep an eye out later today as these storms begin to re-develop. The showers and storm development is expected to continue into the overnight hours.
Tomorrow: We will have a much better chance of squeezing in some outdoor activities tomorrow as the upper atmosphere becomes more stable. Showers and thunderstorms will still be possible but the activity will become more isolated in nature.
Next Week: We’ll have to keep a very close eye on the setup for next week because long range data shows a very dynamic system entering the region by Tuesday. One of our reliable models projects a strong low pressure system will track near Tulsa, Oklahoma on Tuesday. There will be plenty of low level moisture and warm air to raise instability values. Based on this outlook, we’re forecasting a good chance for thunderstorms and rain for late Tuesday and into Wednesday. There is the potential for this to be a storm system capable of producing severe weather across the region. Be sure to pay close attention to the long range forecast over the next few days as we gather new information and fine-tune the forecast.
