May 1, 11 PM Weather Forecast Update

Here is a detailed update of the weather now to the end of May.

Posted: May 1, 2021 9:03 PM
Updated: May 1, 2021 10:42 PM

After morning lows of 32-43 (32 Rochester-Fulton County Airport for cold spot & 43 at Covington for warm spot), highs today reached 73-82. 

The warmest readings were from the eastern extent of the 80s from Illinois (Chicago hit 82, Pontiac 84, Kankakee 82, Champaign 82, Lincoln 85, Watseka 82,  Joliet 84) where we hit 80-82 from Morocco & Wheatfield to Kentland, Fowler, West Lafayette to Pine Village.

Wind gusted as high as 45 mph with very low humidity resulting in rapid drying of soils after the two bands of heavy rainfall a few days ago.

____________________________________________________________________________

Tonight will be warm & breezy to windy with mostly clear to partly cloudy skies & lows 58-66.

Highs Sunday should reach 81-85 with south-southwest winds to 41 mph & a mix of clouds & sunshine.

Dew points should still be low at 46-54, so it will not feel humid.

A round of showers & a few isolated storms should pass Sunday night-Monday morning with lows in the 60s.  Rainfall of 0.08-0.50" is expected.

A break should then ensue for the rest of Monday with some sunshine, south winds to 40 mph & temperatures warming to 80-85.  Dew points should also rise to 64-70, leading to a humid afternoon-evening.

Line of storms should form to our west & impact the area Monday evening-night.

Parameters suggest SLIGHT & SPC has SLIGHT RISK of severe weather up for much of the area.

Main threat is some scattered severe gusts & potential of an isolated brief tornado &/or isolated large hail given current information.

Higher severe risk is southwest & south of our area currently, however.

After that line of storms, rainfall & a few storms return Tuesday (after a lull) late Monday night to Tuesday morning), but the severe weather risk is south of our area.

Highs will run in the 60s to 70.

60s to 70 are expected Wednesday & Thursday with sun & lows largely in the 40s.

Alberta Clipper system should dive in around Friday with a few showers & storms (isolated hail). 

Highs in the 60s to 70 are expected.

Next weekend, highs in the 60s to 70 are likely with lows 37-43.

Round of showers & some storms is possible around May 10-11, followed by drier weather, then warm, humid to muggy, stormy pattern with above normal rainfall around May 13-25 with focus on higher severe weather risk around May 20.

After this & a brief cool-down, hot, dry weather with 90 to the 90s is possible at the very end of May.
