This Week’s Hazards

Five-Day Outlook

Normal High: 52 deg Normal Low: 33 deg

Five-Day Weather Forecast 

Monday: Partly cloudy and mild.

Tuesday: Increasing clouds and increasing wind. Rain and storms develop overnight.

Wednesday: Mainly morning rain and thunder. Temps falling in the afternoon.

Thursday: Mostly sunny and colder.

Friday: Partly cloudy and warmer.

Forecast Discussion & Concerns 

The main concern this forecast period is the chance for strong to severe storms Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. The greatest threat will stay to our west, but we’ll need to be mindful of any storms that might stay strong into our neck of the woods. This is something I’ll watch very closely.

A very cold shot of air follows this system, but temps begin warming right back up by Friday.

Storm Prediction Center Forecast

This is the severe weather outlook for Tuesday. Notice the main threats stay to our west. The orange shading is for the enhanced risk, which is level 3 out of the five severe weather risk categories.
