Warm and Quiet Monday; Rain Chances To Return Mid-Late Week (Source: WLBT)

After a beautiful Easter weekend, our sunshine has carried over into the start of the work week... We’ll remain mostly sunny & dry through the rest of our Monday, with highs reaching the upper 70s/near 80°.

We’ll start to notice a few showers & storms bud up into our Tuesday afternoon and evening, as highs top out in the low 80s. By Wednesday, our next cold front will be approaching the region, eventually ushering in a line of showers and storms by Wednesday night-early Tuesday AM. Severe weather is possible, especially along and north of I-20, in this time frame. Damaging wind gusts and large hail are our main concerns at this time, but an isolated tornado can’t be ruled out!

Unsettled and warm conditions will linger through the rest of the work week and into the weekend as this frontal boundary lingers around the region & disturbances move overhead. Stay tuned for frequent forecast updates as we get closer to these upcoming storm chances!
