What started as such a lovely weekend has now turned stormy. Warm fronts are a pain in the ‘you know what.’
As the rain and thunderstorms move out tonight, lows will be near 60° with mostly cloudy skies, setting up a very warm & windy day on Sunday, with strong to severe storms likely. The Storm Prediction Center has bumped our severe weather threat to a Level 3 out of 5.
On Sunday a very warm and humid air mass settles in. Wind gusts will easily be over 25mph out of the southwest. Look for some showers around in the morning, before it becomes unsettled by the afternoon. A round of scattered thunderstorms, strong to severe, is expected Sunday afternoon and evening.
Damaging wind will be our main concern; storms will be capable of producing wind gusts over 60mph. There is a tornadic threat by the afternoon, as well as the threat of hail. Have a way to get weather alerts on Sunday and stay weather aware!
It may not rain for all of us, but where those thunderstorms do spark, they will pack a punch. If you’ve got any outdoor plans, be sure to frequently check the radar.
Once the cold front blows through Sunday night, things will settled down and slowly clear out. We can expect plenty of sunshine for a refreshing Monday. Highs likely in the upper 50s with a nice breeze. Quiet weather will take us through Tuesday with sunshine and 60s, before more rain is back in the forecast Wednesday into Thursday. Also, it may turn cooler, if not colder, by the end of next week. Expect a roller coaster ride of weather next week!
Stay stoked. – Meteorologist Steve Fundaro
