Thursday, April 25 Forecast Discussion

Clouds completely cleared earlier today and temperatures are warming nicely into the low 70s. We will keep the clear skies tonight which will allow for another chilly night across the area as we drop down once again into the lower and middle 40. Tomorrow will see full sunshine to start but high clouds will arrive through the afternoon hours ahead of our next system that will impact us for the weekend.

A warm front will lift northward tomorrow, which the only thing we will notice is a wind shift. An area of low pressure will develop in the plains and lift to our north, but it will drag a cold front slowly through our area. A thunderstorm complex looks to impact areas north of Highway 82 Friday night into Saturday, with our rain waiting until Saturday afternoon when the front arrives. This front could touch off a couple strong to severe storms with gusty winds and small hail, but those are not expected to be in abundance. The front will still be with us for Sunday, which means more rain for us. Sunday's rain does look like it will be with us for a majority of the day as the front won't exit our area until late in the day.

Even though the front should get south of us, it will still be in the neighborhood to allow pop-up showers and storms each day next week. The most likely day for this to happen is Monday, then chances drop through the middle of the week. Temperatures will return to the 80s until late week before our next system looks to arrive late Thursday into Friday.
