Wednesday Evening May 4th Update – Keeping Things Quiet Around Here

Good Wednesday evening, everyone. Nick here with the blog update tonight at Doug’s request. We have kept things quiet in our neck of the woods for much of the week so far. No rain, t-storms or threatening weather to deal with so far. Changes will be coming down the road, but we keep the radar below quiet once again for tonight…

In fact, the radar will stay quiet as we’ll have mostly clear skies overnight and mostly sunny skies for our Thursday. The clear skies and the light north breeze tonight will mean a cool start for Thursday morning. By the time we head to school and work, we should be starting around 44°…

We’ll continue with a light breeze and plenty of sunny skies throughout our Thursday. That will mean a quick during the day as highs should top out near 72°…

We continue to climb into the upper 70s on Friday and back into the middle 80s on Saturday as skies stay quiet. However, Mother’s Day is when we’ll see t-storm chances start to return. The map below has the GFS projecting how Sunday evening (7 PM) could look…

It has the right idea that we’ll see scattered t-storm chances return mainly late Sunday afternoon and into Sunday evening. So, most of Mother’s Day is looking good before we see rain chances work back in. Some of the t-storms late Sunday could be strong to possibly severe. We’ll continue to watch that over the next few days. The t-storm chances will continue into Monday where we could again see strong to severe storms in our area. The GFS valid at 7 PM Monday below certainly backs up the idea…

We’ll have t-storm chances continue into Tuesday before we see partly sunny skies return on Wednesday. Beyond Wednesday, we’ll have another system to watch that could bring strong to severe storms from next Thursday into next weekend.

Remember for all of Doug’s long range forecasts and latest on severe weather events, he has you covered over on headypattern.com

Have a good Wednesday, everyone!

LONG RANGE FORECAST IS BELOW BASED OFF THE HEADY PATTERN:

Here is your 7-day forecast:

Remember that you can sign up for WeatherCall by clicking the WeatherCall link at the top of the page. WeatherCall, in our opinion, is the best tool on the market to keep you safe during severe weather.

Also we have our free WEATHER APP that lets you access our forecast, blog, radar and weather alerts. I think it’s a must if you own an Apple or Android phone.

LONG RANGE FORECAST: Based off of the HP(Heady Pattern)

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

IF I DON’T SAY SLIGHT:  THAT MEANS THIS IS A STRONGER SYSTEM THAT WILL GIVE US MUCH BETTER PRECIPITATION CHANCES

May 8th-14th:  Warm with a chance for thunderstorms on Sunday.  Warm temperatures continue through most of the week with good chances for thunderstorms Wednesday through Saturday.  We should have good chances for severe weather through the period.
