Good Tuesday morning! I hope your week is going great so far. Mine has been pretty good. I got up early to head to school with my son for the Donuts with Dad’s thing they had going on. I can’t believe his kindergarten year is coming to a close. Christian will be 6 years old here in a little over a month.
I sat out on the back deck and drank a little coffee and enjoyed the nice spring morning. It was a cool crisp spring morning with the dew across the area. However, it will turn out to be a great afternoon. Not much is popping up on the radar below.
We do have a weak wave passing by to our south. This will fire off a random shower later today, mainly in our southern counties. Besides that, temperatures look great as we should make it into the upper 70s this afternoon.
We will see much of the same on Wednesday. Nice mild temperatures with a few pop up storms during the afternoon hours. Our main system will work in on Thursday afternoon. As a cold front works in, this will give us better chances for scattered showers and thunderstorms.
This doesn’t scream severe weather by any means. However, we could see a few strong to severe storms mainly along and south of I-44 during the afternoon hours. The main threat at this time looks to be gusty winds and hail. Of course I will keep my eyes on this. Showers will continue into Thursday night and Friday as the colder air works south.
Remember the is the beginning of the active stretch of the Heady Pattern. So for the next 3 weeks we will see numerous waves working through with big temperature swings and many shots for showers and thunderstorms. I do think we have multiple severe weather shots over the next 3 weeks. Also we can’t rule out a couple of freezes as well. Check out my long range forecast below.

SLIGHT CHANCES: MEAN IT IS A WEAKER SYSTEM THAT WILL GIVE US SCATTERED SHOWERS OR SNOW SHOWERS.
