Another 70-Degree Day…..First Multiple 70 Days Since October 24-25 Last Year

April 7th, 2013 at 6:10 pm by 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.

    Getting home as sunset this evening I could see a cloud bank coming in from the southwest. High today was 67* but the wind was less than yesterday making it really nice outside. Got some patio swing/reading time in today!
