With plenty of sunshine throughout the first part of our day, afternoon temperatures are expected to once again reach the upper 80s. When you pair our well above average temperatures along with the muggy air mass settled in over the Midwest, it makes for an unstable atmosphere. Our first round of severe weather will come as early as this afternoon as a line of thunderstorms makes its way across the viewing area. The main threats from our potential severe weather over the next 48 hours will be hail larger than an inch in diameter and strong straight line wind gusts in excess of 60 mph; however, we can not count out isolated EF0 – EF2 tornados either. The second round of possibly severe storms will arrive late tonight into early tomorrow morning. It will come in the form of a squall line, and though it will have lost a lot of its steam by the time it reaches our boarders, it may still pack a hefty punch. Even though temperatures will only climb into the mid to low 80s tomorrow, that risk for volatile weather will remain. Multiple semi organized lines of storms may develop ahead of a cold front that will kick to our east by Wednesday morning. There may be some lingering rainfall on both Wednesday and Thursday as this cold front positions itself to our east. High pressure will then take control for the holiday weekend. Afternoon high temperatures will have fallen to 69° by Friday before they begin to bounce back come Saturday. Conditions for the Around the Fountain Art Fair this Saturday are looking picture perfect; it will be 72° and Sunny that day. If you're headed to the race this weekend, you may be in fro a treat! If the current trends hold, it will be 74° and mostly sunny at the track! That's a heck of a lot better than the 91° high temperature that was measured last year.
