Tuesday, April 16 Morning Forecast Discussion

By  | 

Happy Tuesday! We look to see plenty of sunshine once again for our Tuesday with high temperatures expected to be in the upper-70s to right around the 80 degree mark. A few more clouds will start to build in for our Wednesday as we remain under southerly flow. Our next storm system is set to arrive during the Thursday afternoon/evening time frame.

Showers and storms are expected for Thursday, and a few storms could become severe. This is so far shaping up to be more of a damaging wind threat as a squall line is expected to develop. There may still be some kinks in the squall line where a tornado may form, so Thursday is still a day you want to stay weather aware. Some models are hinting that a secondary low pressure may develop over one of the Twin States, and this could increase the tornado threat. I am not leaning on that solution for us at this time (I think the secondary low will develop to the north and east of our area) but it’s something that will need to be monitored.

Wrap-around moisture and cloud cover will be with us on Friday, making it a damp and cool day. We then look to see plenty of sunshine for the rest of Easter weekend, with highs making it back into the 80s by Easter Sunday. Dry weather with highs in the 80s also look to continue into at least the beginning of next week.
