Another 70-Degree Day…..First Multiple 70 Days Since October 24-25 Last YearApril 7th, 2013 at 6:10 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
For many of you, today was the second 70-degree day in a row. This has not happened since late October last year.
It is partly cloudy, but the air is extremely dry with dew points in the 30-35 range, leading to relative humidity levels as low as 21%. Winds are not as big of a factor today though: westerly at 10-13 mph.
Pollen is HIGH today at 9.4 on a scale of 0-10 with 10 being max. Offenders are elm, soft map & redcedar pollen. Even the Japanese yews around many homes are producing large amounts of pollen.
Warm front will lift northward this evening-tonight, bringing with it a wave of scattered showers & t’storms (40% coverage). A few of the showers/t’storms may last to early Monday.
The warm front separates dry & moist air more than warmth. However, it is a bit warmer south of the front with mid & upper 70s in far southern Indiana, but dew points jump from 30-35 to 50s with it.
Severe t’storms with mainly large hail are possible in Kansas & Missouri to part of Oklahoma, but no severe weather is expected in our viewing area tonight.
