SEVERE WX : Flood Warning View Alerts

April 9, 1 PM Weather Forecast Update

Here is your latest forecast update for now to early May.

Posted: Apr 9, 2020 12:14 PM
Updated: Apr 9, 2020 5:21 PM

Clouds will increase northwest to southeast this afternoon with some spotty rain (some graupal possible) & rain/snow to spotty snow possible this evening in the 3-11 p.m. time frame for the area.

Northwest winds will gust 40-50 mph at times with a couple isolated gusts of +50 mph possible.

NWS forecast offices have Wind Advisories up for entire viewing area.

After highs of 46-51 around midday to early afternoon, temperatures will fall to 36-44 late today-this evening.

Strong winds will make it feel much colder.

Skies should clear for a while overnight with lows 29-32, but the winds will still be brisk with gusts to 30 mph at times.

This will drop wind chills to 15-22.

Skies will cloud up again late & into tomorrow morning, especially over the northern & northeastern counties.

The greatest amount of sunshine tomorrow will be in our far southwestern areas.  There will be more & more clouds as you work northeastward.  So, skies will vary from mostly sunny to partly cloudy in the far southwest to mostly cloudy to cloudy in the northeast & partly to then mostly cloudy around Greater Lafayette.

A few isolated rain & snow showers are possible over the far eastern parts of the viewing area.

Northwest to west-northwest winds tomorrow may gust to 35 mph.

Highs of 43-51 are likely from northwest to southeast (48 at Greater Lafayette).

After 29-34 Saturday morning, we should reach 55-60 by late afternoon with south-southwest winds increasing to 17-32 mph.

Skies will turn mostly cloudy to cloudy.

A few showers are possible after 7 p.m. Saturday evening.

Lows Saturday night should run 45-52.

Periods of rainfall are likely here Sunday with a few isolated embedded t'storms possible.  Highs of 55-62.

This looks like a big severe weather outbreak from Texas to Georgia & South Carolina Saturday-Sunday.

Easter Sunday looks serious for Mississippi & Alabama with tornado outbreak possible.  High-end MODERATE RISK parameters are showing up. It would not surprise me if we end up with a pocket of HIGH RISK in Mississippi to Alabama.

There have been many infamous Easter Sunday tornado outbreaks in the South & this could be one of them.  We have had our fair share, but right now, there is no severe weather risk in our area.

Some severe risk Saturday-Sunday may reach as far north as Nebraska to southern Missouri to western & central Kentucky.

Some severe weather risk may reach Pennsylvania to Massachusetts by Monday.

A wind-driven Easter snowstorm will occur from Colorado to Nebraska, Iowa & Wisconsin.

High wind event with +50 mph northwest gusts are possible Monday with cold temperatures & some scattered rain & snow.

Some scattered rain/snow to snow is possible at times next week with cold, blustery days of 41-46 & lows 29-33.

I cannot rule out brief, very minor accumulation, specifically early Thursday morning.

Mean temperature anomalies now to April 20:

Overall precipitation up to April 20 runs below normal overall:

After April 20 to early May:

Rainfall turns above normal after April 20 with couple to multiple stints of severe weather risk here. 

I do think there will be a brief dry stretch in early May with the warmth, however.  Looks windy, too.

Warmer early May, then mid-May turns cooler.

Wet period is possible in the transition (with severe weather risk) between the warmth & then cooler pattern in May.
