#ILwx #INwx #OHwx Zone 1 short term forecast. Active stormy week. Nice weekend. M.
Good Tuesday morning hope you all had a nice holiday weekend! An active stormy week is underway with multiple storm chances starting as early as Wednesday morning and lasting through Friday. Potentially 3-4 rounds of rain and storms with strong to severe storms possible Wed and Thur evening. Precip water values or the water content in the atmosphere will once again rise to 2″ so this along with a 40knot low level jet and sufficient instability both Wed and Thur evening would warrant the mention of strong to severe storm potential along with heavy rain and vivid lightning. Areas that have had a lot of rain esp down along the river over the weekend need to have a plan in place to deal with the additional potential rainfall in the coming days.
7 day rainfall numbers:
The active pattern this week will give way to a pretty nice weekend for most as high pressure works in with lower humidity and slightly cooler temps with the exception of the disturbance down along southern zone 1 Sunday into Monday. This will bring storm chances with it but the exact track is still up for grabs so for now only introduced 30% chances into 7 days.
