More rain is rolling in. -Doug

Good Thursday evening!  I hope your week is going great so far.  Mine has been good.  I haven’t left the house much at all.  Well only to get gas and grab a couple things at the store.  Besides that, just working away from home.  I am looking forward to the weekend of course, but to bad it won’t be nicer weather.  It won’t be bad, just not great.  First off, lets look at the storm system rolling in tonight.  Showers and even a random thunderstorms pick up after midnight tonight and into the early morning hours.

Early Friday Morning

Scattered showers through the morning hours.  Temperatures will be near 60 prior to about 9am, but then we start the drop through the day.  Near 50 by the noon hour.  Showers continue through the day with dropping temperatures.

Noon Hour

Showers actually pick up a bit during the afternoon hours.


Here is a look at your day planner


Saturday will be chilly but at least mainly dry.  At least we won’t get super heavy rains.  I think most areas will be in the 1/4-1/2″ range.  Check out my long range forecast below.



Long range forecast into the middle of June:

Next Friday-Saturday:  Scattered storms on Friday and then cooling down for Saturday.

April 11th-18th:  Scattered storms back in on Sunday and Monday with cooler temperatures on Monday and Tuesday.  Our next wave is on Wednesday and Thursday with scattered showers and a few thunderstorms.  Cool the rest of the week.

April 19th-25th:  We’ll stay mild Sunday through Thursday. Sunday will be dry before we see isolated t-storm chances for Monday. A strong storm system wants to bring strong to severe t-storms for Tuesday and Wednesday before we back things down to rain chances on Thursday. We’ll calm down and cool down a bit for the weekend.

April 26th-May 2nd:  Temperatures stay mild for most of the week. We’ll watch for strong t-storm chances on Tuesday. After a dry Wednesday, we’ll have isolated t-storm chances return for Thursday. We’ll watch for strong to severe t-storms on Friday before we dry out and turn cooler for Saturday.

May 3rd-9th: We’re looking at a mild to warm week with our temperatures. The week starts dry before see slight t-storm chances return on Tuesday. We’ll watch for strong to severe t-storms on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday before we calm things down for Saturday.

May 10th-16th:  Another mild to warm week for us. We’ll have a slight chance for a few t-storms Sunday followed by a dry Monday. Another system will bring in rain and a few t-storms for Tuesday and Wednesday. After a dry Thursday, we’ll have a strong storm system work in for the coming weekend. Slight chances for strong to severe t-storms for Friday with a better shot on Saturday.

May 17th-23rd: We’ll start the week with a mild Sunday and Monday. Showers will be around for Sunday followed by a dry Monday. Mild to warm for Tuesday through Thursday. Strong to severe t-storms for Tuesday, rain on Wednesday and another shot for strong to severe t-storms Thursday. We’ll stay mild to warm as we calm things down for a dry Friday and Saturday.

May 24th-30th: The week starts warm with a system bringing strong to severe t-storms in for Sunday and Monday. After a dry and mild Tuesday, we’ll have another shot for strong to severe t-storms on a warm Wednesday. That system leaves us with a dry and mild Thursday before we warm up again for the weekend. We’ll watch for t-storm chances on Saturday.

May 31st-June 6th: The week starts with a warm Sunday with strong to severe t-storms to keep an eye on. We’ll stay mild for Monday before we warm back up with slight rain chances for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Friday and Saturday will stay dry as we stay warm.
