Staying quiet this evening
With t-storm chances off to our west and east
Our last pair of upper level waves has moved off to the east just enough that it took our rain chances out of here after this morning. The accompanying cold front has also moved off to the east for the rest of the evening. That will leave us dry with partly cloudy skies and overnight lows dropping back into the lower 50s. As for t-storm chances, the better chances lie in the slight risk for severe weather outlined for eastern Illinois, western Indiana and extreme northwestern Kentucky. The cold front and upper level low working across the Ohio River Valley and the southern Great Lakes is prompting t-storms capable of mainly damaging wind gusts for this evening. We can’t rule out a few brief tornadoes with those t-storms this evening. Another marginal risk has been noted for southern Colorado and northeastern New Mexico for some isolated t-storms that will fade away after sunset. Another marginal risk is up for parts of Idaho, Montana, Washington and Oregon with an upper level low working out of the Pacific. Some of those scattered t-storms could be capable of some small hail and gusty wind before they start to die down tonight.
