Good Monday night, folks! Love may be in the air today, but storms will be in the air later this week as I continue to track a potent storm system that will impact us on Wednesday Night into Thursday. This Storm System will bring widespread rainfall, gusty winds, and the possibility of a few severe thunderstorms Thursday afternoon. Gusty winds will again be a concern, with sustained winds of 15-25 MPH with gusts to 40-45 MPH at times throughout the day.
After the front moves through Thursday night, we`ll see temps crash quickly behind the front, with temps likely falling some 30 degrees over a 6 hour period. This may result in a period of light snow across portions of the region before precipitation ends; no accumulation is expected.
The Storm Prediction Center currently has the best chance for Severe Weather On Thursday to out south but based on the latest data, this will likely get extended closer to our area in later outlooks. I'll be monitoring all the latest data throughout the week; stay weather aware!
