Are you ready for the big warm-up this week?  Dozens of record highs will fall across the nation. 

SEVERE RISK? The Storm Prediction Center has backed off quite a bit on the Wednesday severe threat,  In fact, they have adjusted the risk area to just the northern counties.  This is great news for most of the state.  The best dynamics’ for severe weather will stay north of us.    

Here’s the 10 day temperature trend.  Look for a big warm-up especially early next week, peaking on Tuesday.  It will turn much cooler Thursday, but not arctic air.
