More frost chances to start the week
Becoming a bit more unsettled and a whole lot warmer by mid to late week
TONIGHT: More patchy frost is possible once again tonight. This will be the last night for frost for this week.
Baldwin’s Severe Wx Concern
I’ve raised my concern slightly, owing to much warmer temps that are coming for the second half of the week and the ability of those temps to possibly support a stronger storm toward week’s end and into the weekend. At this time, however, there are no indications of any widespread severe weather threats over the next seven days.
Baldwin’s 7-Day forecast
Today: Partly cloudy and cool. Otherwise, look for plenty of sunshine!
Tuesday: Partly to mostly cloudy skies. Perhaps a sprinkle or three?
Wednesday: Partly to mostly cloudy skies. A chance for showers with a warm frontal passage.
Thursday: Partly cloudy with only a slight chance for a shower. A warming trend begins.
Friday: Partly to mostly cloudy skies with a slight chance for showers or thundershowers.
Saturday – Sunday: Partly cloudy with a chance for showers.

Wx Hazards Across the Nation
Some severe weather can be found in western Texas today but that should be a localized threat. Otherwise, it’s continued cool across the country, with light wintry precip falling across portions of the northern plains and again across western portions of the Northeast.
A severe weather outbreak consisting of some powerful tornadoes struck Middle TN on this day in 2003. Between the hours of 2:00-4:00 am two F-3 tornadoes tracked just south of Nashville. One of those twisters tracked across Williamson County. The other moved across Rutherford County.

Long Range Outlook
As we cross the threshold of mid May, temps look to warm and rainfall looks to increase. Should this pattern verify, thunderstorms and severe weather chances are liable to increase as well.
On May 10, 1996 the movie Twister was released at the movies. I had never been so excited to see a movie! It’s just hard to believe it’s been 24 years ago. Pictured below is one of the most quoted scenes. I’ve never looked at cows the same since (HA!).
Answer to Trivia Question
A: (b) Although tornadoes can occur at any time of day or night, they are most common between the late afternoon and early evening. This is typically the warmest time of day and when the atmosphere is most unstable.
You all have a great day!
