A Stormy Start To Tuesday

Another round of strong storms possible this afternoon....

First Alert Weather at 4:30 a.m. 5/4

Patchy fog will be around some areas this morning but the bigger impact will be rain and storms this across the Heartland. There is a severe thunderstorm watch issued for central and southern counties until 8AM. Severe storms will likely have damaging winds, hail, and the potential for a quick spin-up tornado. Lots of lightning and heavy rain will accompany any activity this morning. We should see storms and most of the rain move out just in time for the morning commute hours. However, lingering scattered rain is possible around sunrise. Light isolated showers may occur during the early afternoon as a cold front will enter to our north. Along and ahead of it, a few showers and storms may pop-up especially during the afternoon and early evening. A few could be strong to severe with strong winds and hail primarily in our central and southern areas. Thankfully, the severe weather threat will not last long into the night as the cold front will quickly push south and getting strong storms out of here. We will see light rain and breezy conditions behind the front for a short time before clearing the skies by Wednesday morning.

Highs today will be in the mid 60s north to mid 70s south. Lows tonight will be in the mid 40s to low 50s.

Wednesday will be one of the cooler days this week in the upper 60s, but it will be sunny and dry. A weak disturbance could bring a few showers late Thursday, but even more storms look to arrive by this weekend. There is even a chance for strong to severe storms again on Sunday into early Monday.
