We’ll be feeling quite a bit warmer this week and why not, it is the first week of May after all! After a quiet, and in most cases, fairly bright Monday, we’re expecting warmer, more unstable air to move back into the region for the middle part of the week. A storm system will slide in for the mid week, likely setting off some thunderstorms later Tuesday to our west. Those storms are expected to move into our local area in the late evening and overnight period Tuesday into Wednesday, some possibly becoming severe. The biggest threats from those storms looks to be large hail and damaging wind gusts as a line or two of intense thunderstorm activity is likely to develop and rumble in from the west. Another round of storms is expected to develop Wednesday afternoon and evening, some again likely severe with large hail, damaging winds, and possibly a tornado or two in the area. There will also be some more thunderstorm potential Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, but at this point we’re too far away from that time frame to get a clear idea of the severe weather threat or potential. In the meantime, be on the lookout for severe weather tomorrow and Wednesday and keep it tuned to the NewsCenter for more on this upcoming storm system.
