Potent Late Week Storm System – Tuesday Video

Good Morning!  Yesterday’s chilly air is retreating, and we have a big mid week warm-up ahead.  But, the big story this week involves a Thursday storm system which could bring some strong to severe storms to the state, along with drenching rains.  I have the latest on timing, and an update on the severe weather potential. Plus, the latest on an Easter weekend forecast you’re going to like.  We have a busy and informative Tuesday morning weather briefing, with your toast and coffee this morning.

The Cool Wedge breaks down and retreats today, leading to a warmer day.

Great baseball weather at Riverwalk tonight!  Comfortable…

Warm-up Wednesday.  Potent  storm system Thursday.  Nice Easter weekend.

The greatest severe threat is generally along and west of I-65.  Tornadoes are not out of the question.  Damaging wind gusts to 60+ mph would be the main threat.  The eastern counties will see a lesser threat Thursday afternoon.

This Map from SPC shows the wider perspective of the threat for the entire state.
