Severe Thunderstorms are Possible Today

Originally, the National Weather Service was calling for sunny skies and temperatures into the 80’s for today. That however, changed last night as upper level disturbances began to track north destablizing the atmosphere and creating severe weather overnight.

Meteorologists have changed their tune now after Sunday Night and are now looking at severe weather possible from the Central Plains to the Upper Great Lakes and into the Mid-Atlantic. Along with it comes a slight risk for flooding and slightly higher than normal temperatures and humidity.

The general weather pattern features a stronger than normal subtropical ridge spanning from the southern Mid-Atlantic states across portions of the Ohio Valley and plains states.

The Weather Service says that there are good chances of showers and thunderstorms developing in the early morning and early evening hours after daytime heating has had a chance to occur. Highs will range from 78 to a little over 80 degrees. Winds will be light and variable except in the storms where winds speeds will be much greater.
