Showers & Storms Expected Later Today
A large upper level disturbance to our west and a surface cold front will make for a very active couple of days. Warm, moist air will be continue to be funneled up ahead of this disturbance. Any storms that develop this afternoon have the potential to produce damaging winds, hail and flash flooding. In fact, The Storm Prediction Center has the lower valley including greater Springfield as an elevated risk for severe weather this afternoon and evening. The National Weather Service also has us under a Flash Flood Watch through Wednesday morning so the next 48 hours will be very active.
Be sure to bring any outdoor activities inside as soon as you see dark clouds building and certainly if you hear thunder! Wednesday will be the transition day from cloudy, humid and wet conditions to more comfortable air and sunshine. Though there may be some leftover showers in the morning, the afternoon should feature decreasing clouds with more sunshine as the day grows late. High pressure builds in just in time for late week, providing for comfortable air, highs in the lower 80’s and ample amounts of sunshine!
Have a great day!
