Risk of Severe Storms Today Through Monday

We'll have a risk of severe storms today, tonight and Monday as a couple of cold fronts approach and move through.  The biggest risks will be fore damaging winds and large hail, along with locally heavy rainfall!
As the first front approaches and moves into the area this afternoon and combines with the heat and humidity, we'll see storms develop and grow in intensity.

This will carry over into Monday as the second front approaches, with large hail, damaging winds and locally heavy rainfall possible.  A stray tornado is not out of the question either.

Locally heavy rainfall could approach 2 or 3 inches for some, so flash flooding also becomes a concern.

 Your can hear my forecasts each weekday on Newstalk 94.7, 95.5, 570AM and 1320AM, along with The Mix 94.7 and Willie 102.1.  Remember, when the power's out, you can still hear our forecasts and live reports on these stations, too.

Chance of Severe Storms Monday-Tuesday

We'll have a chance of severe storms Monday, through Tuesday night as storms develop near an approaching cold front.  The biggest threats should be large hail and damaging winds!  after the front gets through the area Wednesday, things should calm down for a few days, with only a slight chance of showers and storms Saturday and Sunday.

Here's the risk of severe storms Monday and Monday night.  The biggest threat will be north of the Ohio River, and includes mostly the threat of large hail and damaging winds.

Tuesday and Tuesday night, the threat of severe storms will include all of the area, and once again, the biggest threat chance is for large hail and high winds.

Forecast rainfall for the week, ranging from a half inch to an inch and a half. Of course, these are averages.  Some areas could get more with heavy downpours and some areas, less.  Most of the rain will come Monday through Tuesday night.

A Break Wednesday, Then Showers and Storms Return

A little cooler and less humid with that front to our south Wednesday, but the front will start easing northward again, and increasing our chances for showers and storms for Thursday and Friday. After that, high pressure begins taking over again and minimizing our chances for showers Sunday into mid-week, next week. High temperatures will also return to the 90s at that point.

Rain Chances and Heat in the Week Ahead.

It will feel a lot more like summertime this week, and we head into a pattern which is more like what we see in typical summer weather mode. With high pressure to our south and east, we'll have a nice southerly flow bringing up plenty of warmth and humidity. For most of the week, we'll have high temperatures in the 90s or close to it.  In fact, on Tuesday and Wednesday, we could have heat index readings near 100!

It should also be drier. Total rainfall for the week should add up to less than a third of an inch, on average.  Of course that does not take into account locally heavier rainfall which could occur in specific areas, should popup storms develop. Drier weather should help farmers.  Over the weekend, I heard about at least one farmer in our area whose wheat is sprouting from the heads because of excess rainfall over the past few weeks.
