May 19, 10 PM Weather Forecast

The new data & numbers are in. Here is a breakdown of the latest forecast.

Posted: May 20, 2019 9:04 PM
Updated: May 20, 2019 9:43 PM

Scattered showers & thunder are possible early Wednesday morning to midday north of the warm front.

Otherwise it looks mostly cloudy to cloudy with strong east winds 20-35 mph. 

Highs will run in the 50s for much of the area with 60s in the far south as the warm front moves northward late in the day.

Temperatures will rise in the southern areas to the 60s to 70 late tomorrow night with 50s rest.

Round of rain & storms will pass along & north of the warm front here 2-7 a.m.

Isolated severe storms are possible in that zone of greatest warming along & south of the warm front (south of a Fowler to Lafayette to Frankfort).

Once it outruns that area, it should weaken.

It heats up & dries out Wednesday! 

Highs will run 80-85 with gusty southwest winds & sun/clouds & humid dew points of 64-68.

It looks like very warm to hot & humid weather will dominate right up to the end of May to early June.

These are highs for May 31.  Even they are 84-90 with high humidity & strong southerly winds.

The main corridor of heavy storms & severe weather looks to set up Wisconsin & Minnesota to Oklahoma & Texas.  There, persistent severe weather events & outbreaks with lots of flooding will occur.

Here, some storms will flirt with us off & on with the best potential of widespread storms early to mid next week & again around June 2.

It will be summer-like with random pops of storms & occasionally some weakening lines slipping in, but those two dates/periods seem to have the best potential for widespread rainfall & severe weather risk.

We will monitor for any slightly eastward movement of all of the substantial to significant storminess & flooding west & northwest of our area.

Note how the southeastern upper ridge locks this pattern in & creates a block.  Record heat is likely in the Southeast wtih 100-102 possible North Carolina to northern Florida to Georgia & far southeastern Alabama & widespread mid & upper 90s elsewhere.

90s may get as far north as New England at times.

The West will be unseasonably cool.

Between all of this will be the continued severe weather & flooding in the Plains & western & northwestern half of the Corn Belt.

Rainfall now to June 5 (16-day total) is forecast at 1.80-3.00" with heaviest totals of that range in the northwestern part of the viewing area.

+12" flooding rains will occur parts of Iowa, through Missouri to Kansas & Oklahoma with widespread flooding.

Early half of June looks warmer than normal with drier pattern overall as upper ridge expands.  Axis of main severe weather area & flooding zone should move to the Dakotas, Minnesota & parts of Nebraska insteady of Wisconsin to Texas.

Normal temperatures & normal to above normal rainfall looks to develop by mid to late June.
