Second round of severe weather on the way
Tonight is shaping up to be another night of active weather for the Crossroads. Another system, called a Mesoscale Convective System, is expected late tonight and into tomorrow morning. We are in a slight risk for severe weather per the SPC, meaning we can expect damaging winds, large hail, and maybe an isolated tornado this evening. The risk for an isolated tornado is much lower than the other two hazards.
Timing on this system remains around midnight to 1AM, making this another nocturnal event. Make sure you have multiple ways to receive warnings this evening, especially as you head to bed.
Short Term (Tonight through Wednesday Evening)
Tonight, expect temperatures to dip into the mid to upper 60s once a weak cold front pushes into the region overnight. Rain is expected along with some severe weather, so make sure you’re prepared.
As we enter Tuesday, things will quiet down ever so slightly. It will be cooler, with highs in the mid 80s. Rain is still expected, but will end in the evening. Tuesday night will be on the cool side, with lows in the upper 60s and rain chances tapering off.
Wednesday will be a nice day. Highs will reach the upper 80s, with partly cloudy conditions expected and only a chance for an isolated shower. Heading into the evening, lows will dip into the upper 60s once again with mostly cloudy skies.
Extended forecast (through Monday)
A cutoff low will be providing us with slight rain chances throughout the week, with temperatures remaining in the upper 80s throughout the forecast. Another short wave will enter our forecast around Friday, providing even more rain for the weekend ahead.
