(E-T Weather Update Monday, March 22)
While today will be dry, rain/storms return Tuesday and Wednesday. We aren’t expecting any severe weather either of those days, but some thunder and lightning, along with gusty wind will be possible.
Thursday we are issuing an E-T Weather Alert Day for the potential for strong to severe storms. As of now, the SPC has placed us under a Slight Risk ( level 2 out of 5 ). I do think this could be upgraded as time moves forward.
The primary concerns will be damaging straight-line wind, hail, and isolated tornadoes. I’m addition, due to a prolonged period of chances for storms, flash flooding could be a concern. 1-3 inches of rain is possible, with locally higher amounts.
As far as timing and highest threat areas are concerned, we will pinpoint that over the next couple of days as forecast confidence increases.
As far as temperatures are concerned, expect highs around 70 each day with lows in the upper 50’s and lower 60’s, lower 50’s Thursday night behind the front...God bless
