First Alert Sunday Morning Outlook

From dry to wet: a soggy pattern for the next few days....

First Alert Weather 10/18 6 a.m.

After weeks of dry weather, a much wetter and more unsettled pattern will be with us for the next several days (and possibly longer). In the short term, a front to our northwest this morning will move into the Heartland and then wave back and forth in the region for a few days. Rain looks to be light and scattered today, but heavier rain and even some thunderstorms are possible tonight through about Tuesday morning. We’ve had a few light showers this morning, but should get a lull before more heavier showers develop this afternoon and evening. Heavier showers and thundershowers are likely tonight and into Monday morning.

SPC continues with a low-level risk of severe storms for Monday into Monday night. There will be significant shear but instability will be marginal so widespread severe is not likely. A few heavy downpours could develop as well. On Tuesday and Wednesday the front will drift north and rain chances will decrease (but not end.) After a warm and humid Thursday, a stronger cold front will make a final pass on Friday with another chance of stronger thunderstorms, followed by a cooler weekend
