Good morning! A weak system will lift from the Gulf of Mexico in the next 24 hours, eventually bringing more clouds and showers by Monday afternoon. Due to its warm and humid source region, some heavier rain will be possible into the overnight and early Tuesday morning. After a soggy start Tuesday, dry air will briefly move in during the afternoon, giving the area a brief lull in precipitation.
A stronger, more dynamic trough of low pressure will move in from the northwest by Tuesday night, and we'll have to watch for storms to fire ahead of its associated cold front. With some shear (turning of the wind) in the low levels ahead of the front, it's possible a few storms could be strong to severe. The NWS Storm Prediction Center already highlights the I-94 corridor and locations south in a slight risk for severe storms. This means isolated severe storms are possible. Wind gusts look to be the primary concern given the mostly linear nature of the storms. We'll also need to watch for isolated cells ahead of the main line by the evening Tuesday through about bedtime. Any severe risk should diminish after midnight, but some showers will linger into early Wednesday.
Temperatures trend cooler after this frontal passage. Another cold front moves in late Thursday into Friday, but the rain chances look less impressive. The air behind cold front #2 this week with bring below average temperatures for Friday. We're sandwiched between colder temperatures north and warmer air south for the weekend, so showers along a stalled out boundary look possible both Saturday and Sunday. I expect temperatures to trend cooler by the start of October.
Hope you had a great weekend! I'll have your forecast tonight at 10 pm on the CW 7 and 11 pm on Newschannel 3. See you then!
