Chance of Severe Storms Thursday and Again on Monday!

We're watching a couple of chances for Severe Storms for our region over the next few days. 

First of all, Thursday, especially Thursday night, strong storms could form into a squall line ahead of an approaching cold front.  Right now it looks like the greatest risk for our region will be in the Missouri Bootheel and NW Tennessee, with the greatest threat being high winds, or perhaps an isolated tornado.


Although it's a ways off, we could see a better chance of severe storms over a larger part of the region on Monday, into Monday night as another front approaches. The main concerns for Monday, especially Monday night are supercell storms, with tornadoes and large hail.   This system certainly bears watching, especially the closer we get to it so stay tuned.

Chances for Showers and Storms This Week

Although we have showers and storms in the forecast for the week, at this time, we're not expecting any substantial threat of severe storms.  Most threats of severe weather remain well to our west and south.

We will have a chance for showers and storms tonight, and also Thursday and Thursday night as cold fronts move through.  Temperature wise, our temperatures should run close to normal, or even above normal through the week and into the weekend.

New Tornado Watch until 4 AM

We have a new Tornado Watch until 4AM for all of Western KY and NW Tennessee, along with SE Missouri, including the Bootheel and extreme S Illinois.  We have 2 lines of storms we're watching. One moving in right now, and another squall line further to the west.

Threats include high winds, large hail and possible tornadoes. In fact, we've already had several tornado WARININGS with these storms.  Stay abreast of the latest weather information regarding these storms!

If severe weather approaches, it's best to seek shelter in a storm shelter or basement.  If neither are available, go to the most interior room in your house and cover your head.

Chance of Severe Storms Today Through Friday

Still looking at a slight risk for strong to severe storms especially tonight into Friday for portions of the region.  The main threats will be hail and winds. The good news for our region is that the heavier storms are expected to arrive in this area overnight, when the conditions favorable to severe storm development are diminished.

We could also see some rainfall amounts of more than 1.5 inches before the showers and storms move out Friday night, so watch out for that!

Weekend Forecast!

What a beautiful day Friday! Highs in the low 70s for most of us with plenty of sunshine! Should see a small chance of showers Friday night though, and cooler air moving in on Saturday behind a cold front, dropping our highs about 10 degrees or so, to the upper 50s to near 60.  We'll have another chance for showers Saturday night, followed by cooler air on Sunday again, with highs dropping  to the upper 40s to near 50.

UPDATE: Possible Wintry Mix Today-Tonight



Still not thinking the anticipated wintry mix today into tonight will amount to much, BUT, there could be a few impacts of travel tonight and for the Monday morning commute to be concerned with: namely black ice in the wake of all this precipitation, and cold air moving in.


Snowfall amounts should be minimal and limited to north of the Ohio River.

Warming Up But With A "Chance" of Snow

Spring finally arrives this week, with temperatures knocking on the door of the 70s!  There IS a slight chance of a little snow, but don't freak out. There might be a few flakes but no problems!

The warming trend kicks into high gear Monday and Tuesday with temperatures in the 60s and maybe even 70s for Tuesday!
Tuesday afternoon at 4PM
Tuesday night, a system brings us a chance for showers mostly, but as it exits on Wednesday, we could see a few snowflakes. No problems expected for us, though! We'll be right back in the 40s to near 50 for highs on Wednesday.
Wednesday at 1AM in the morning

Wednesday morning at 7AM

Measurable snowfall WELL to our north Wednesday
After that, it's 50s and 60s for high temperatures through the weekend, with lows in the 30s and 40s! YEAH!!!!
