Wet and stormy days ahead

(April 7, 2015) – A frontal boundary will remain across the region for the next couple of days causing wet conditions and large temperature contrasts. As weak systems move along it through tonight, scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop and impact the area. Locally heavy rain is possible, but no severe weather is expected through Wednesday.

Highs through Wednesday north of the front will be in the upper 40s to middle 50s with locations south of the front seeing highs in the 60s. Our attention will turn to an increasing severe threat for Wednesday night into Thursday night. The front will surge north and set the stage for increased thunderstorms development Wednesday night with the threat for locally severe hail producing storms.

An even greater threat may unfold from late Thursday afternoon into Thursday night ahead of a strong front as highs climb into the 70s. A line of storms may develop in Illinois Thursday afternoon and move east into the area mainly Thursday night with a threat for damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes.
