Storm chances on Monday increase

Monday we will see scattered showers continue throughout the day, with on-and-off dry periods in between showers. The possibility to see thunderstorms and potential severe weather increase. Tuesday there is a chance for possible storms in the morning and afternoon before drying up. Wednesday will be mostly cloudy with a chance to see some sun in the afternoon, before more potential storms arrive on Thursday. Temperatures are expected to remain above average in the 80s throughout next week.



Stormcast shows a “wave” of  storm systems lasting from the AM hours into the evening. The first “wave” will arrive for the early morning hours, then we will see a brief pause in precipitation as the second system arrives in the afternoon.



There is a Slight Risk (Level 2) for Severe Weather in place on Monday. All of the FOX23 coverage area is placed in the Slight Risk with a Marginal Risk (Level 1) surrounding our viewing area. Damaging wind speeds and hail are the biggest threats, with tornado potential on the lower end. The Storm Alert Team will continue to track this system as it arrives.



A look into the rain probability for Monday, almost every hour has the potential to see precipitation. A lower chance for rain from 10am-4pm on Monday, as the first “wave” of storms makes its way to our southeast and another storm system arrives near 5:00pm.



Throughout Monday there is a possibility to see scattered showers, thunderstorms and possible Severe Weather. Temperatures will start above average in the mid 60s before warming up into the mid 80s. Wind speeds from the southwest are expected at 10-15 mph, with gusts reaching 20 mph.



The next several days will be warmer than average in the 80s with lows in the upper 50s and 60. The possibility to see scattered showers and thunderstorms increase for Monday. Wednesday dries up with mostly cloudy skies. Another chance to see storms arrives on Thursday with possible storms throughout Mother’s Day on Sunday.
