Marginal Risk of severe weather late tonight-early Thursday morning.

Bow/line of storms with some severe risk still looks possible very late tonight/early Thursday morning, generally in the 4:30-8:30 a.m. time frame.

Ahead of it, temperatures will be around 65 with dew points around 60 with south-southwest winds at 20-25 mph with gusts 30-35 mph.

Rain with a few embedded t'storms will follow for the day.

The SLIGHT RISK of severe weather get right up to Ambia in Benton County with MARGINAL RISK for the rest of the viewing area as the line/bow passes.

Main threat is wind with lesser isolated tornado risk & risk of small hail.  Some flash flooding from heavy rainfall is also a threat.

Thursday night will be a wet, windy, chilly one as temperatures fall into the 40s.

Friday will be a windy, cool one with any steady rain exiting early, followed by just clouds & a few spotty showers.  Highs will run 48-54 after 41-45 in the morning.  Winds may gust to 40 mph from the north, adding a real, blustery, early-March feel to the air.

As we completely clear Friday night, patchy frost is possible if the winds can really lighten up.  Lows of 32-36 seem reasonable at the moment based on the clearing trends.

Saturday looks good with lots of sunshine & highs 57-63.

Easter Sunday still looks good, though I went for partly cloudy rather than sunny to mostly sunny.  Highs will run 67-75 (coolest east) after 37-45 in the morning (coldest east).

Some scattered showers & storms are possible Monday with highs 68-76.  An isolated severe storm cannot be ruled out Monday.

With warm front shooting way north of the area, we will be bathed in warm, humid weather Tuesday-Wednesday of next week with south-southwest winds to 32 mph.

Showers & storms are likely Wednesday PM.  An isolated severe storm is possible, but it appears that the parameters suggesting SLIGHT RISK will remain west of our area.

Highs of 77-81 are possible Tuesday & Wednesday with dew points surging to the 62-65 range.
