April 6, 10 PM Weather Forecast Update

Severe risk & more 70s ahead, but also some frost & freezing.

Highs today ran 67-71 after areas of dense fog (& 40s) & low clouds this morning giving way to partly cloudy skies.

Some scattered showers are possible Sunday morning with mostly cloudy skies after lows in the 50s.

After the scattered morning rainfall, a long break should ensue with clouds/sun, strong southerly winds 20-40 mph & temperatures surging around 70 to the mid 70s over the viewing area.

Then, new t'storms should fire in the evening & exit by 1 a.m.

So, 7 p.m.-1 a.m. would be the time frame for any severe t'storm in our area.

Some severe weather could occur with these t'storms with all risks on the table from any severe t'storm.

Right now, SPC has us in MARGINAL RISK for much of the viewing area.

I think an upgrade to SLIGHT RISK is possible, especially over our southern half the the next update.

After this, Monday looks good with skies becoming partly cloudy.  Highs will run in the lower to middle 70s after morning lows in the 50s.

Highs Tuesday will run in the upper 60s to lower 70s with sunshine, followed by 60s Wednesday.  Lows will be in the 40s.

Very powerful storm system may bring major winter storm to the Plains & Upper Midwest late week with heavy, wind-driven snow.

Here, severe weather is possible Thursday afternoon-evening with highs in the 60s & 70s over our area with strong southwest winds 25-40 mph.  If we can really get some good sunshine, then 70s to nearly 80 are possible.

A couple to a few nights of frost & freezing are possible down the road, but it certainly looks like a pattern dominated by very warm weather in late April with 80s possible.

Severe weather risk will also go up.

Note the frequency of severe weather episodes showing up in the longer-range data for late April.  The colors indicate severe weather risk.  The yellow, oranges & reds indicate especial severe risk.
