Temperatures continued to warm today, rising into the mid-70’s. Clouds have now overspread the area associated with a line of showers and thunderstorms to the west. Several rounds of thunderstorms are expected over the next 24 hours, so here’s what we’re tracking:
Round One: The first round of storms seem to have largely passed to the southwest and fizzled out. As a result, the evening looks to remain dry . If you have any plans this evening, such as heading out to the Tincaps game or for dinner, they should be a go!
Round Two: The second round of thunderstorms should near the area around 10:00PM, moving in from Michigan. Gusty winds (40-55mph), nickel sized hail, and heavy rainfall that could result in localized flooding are the main threats. Overall, the severe threat looks to be low at the moment. Most of the activity should move out of the area by 3:00AM.
Tomorrow morning, a few lingering showers are possible around sunrise. Temperatures will rise once again to the mid-70’s. Additional thunderstorms are possible in the afternoon and evening hours, but they look to be scattered in nature and not severe. We’ll have more details on tomorrow’s forecast and the latest on tonight’s storms on ABC21!
