Early Morning Storms, Another Windy Day AheadBy
The storm system that prompted 122 tornado reports Saturday another 10 on Sunday is now moving toward Indiana, but when it arrives in the early morning hours, it will be considerably weaker. We may see an isolated strong storm, but for the most part plan on a brief period of moderate to heavy rain with up to 1/3″ of rain and some embedded thunder and lightning. Here’s what FutureTrak13 shows around 5am Monday morning, so it could be a slower than normal commute.
The rain moves out by mid morning, and we’ll be dry but windy through the rest of your Monday. A WIND ADVISORY continues in effect until 6pm with gusts out of the southwest to 45 mph possible.
Temperatures will trend downward as well. We hit 78 Sunday (the record of 84 set in 2002 is safe) and will manage upper 60s to 70 on Monday, still above the average high of 63. The coolest weather is waiting for the weekend when highs may only manage 50s!
Speaking of the weekend, if you’re walking in the Komen Race for the Cure Saturday morning, it now looks dry, but cool. Morning lows may be near 40 with temps only warming into the mid 50s by late afternoon.
