What a wild ride May has been so far with rain, hail and thunderstorms! Well today is going to continue that same trend. Let's take a look at how that will setup for us.
Wow! What a crazy afternoon already. Well, I reported in a post earlier about storms tonight that I was concerned with. That concern is still there. Expect much more of what you saw this afternoon to move through late this evening between 8 & midnight.
I hope you are enjoying your Monday so far. We are in that time of the year where heating during the day sparks up so afternoon and evening thunderstorms. Some of those storms can be on the severe side.
As we are now closing in on midway through the morning hours of the daytime this Sunday. I wanted to take a few moments to get you ready for what to expect this afternoon and evening so you can plan out your day.
Now that we are in the month of May. Let's take a look back at April and how we stand for 2016 as well.
The Highest temperature we recorded in April was 85º and the lowest was 28º On average how does April stack up temperature wise compared to April's in the past?
If you have been outside any this Saturday you have obviously felt the persistent pesky drizzle that falling. Later tonight that drizzle will turn into rain and bring the possibility of thunderstorms with it.
If you have enjoyed the sunshine today you were not alone! However, rain chances are going to start ramping back up for the weekend. Saturday you will have time to get out and enjoy some outdoor activities but as we close in on the evening hours rain chances increase pretty quickly.
Now I know by now most of you have already been awake and read my forecast for today. You must be thinking ok weatherman are you off your rocker? You said it would be sunny today and it's just after 8 am and all I see are clouds.
The models are continuing to trend toward what could be a very interesting evening commute. As a line of storms are expected to move into the county later the afternoon and evening. I am going with heavy downpours and small hail as the main threat for this system.
We have already started to get a few isolated showers around the county this morning. That trend will continue off and on throughout the day. I would not expect a total washout by any means but certainly keep the rain gear handy.
