Skies are beginning to clear throughout the viewing area as drier air filters into the region following the passage of this morning’s storms system. The additional sunshine will begin to destabilize the atmosphere as the day progresses. If you take that unstable atmosphere and add a weak upper level jet to it you get slight risk for severe weather. While the environment to support inclement weather is in place over the viewing area, we still need a trigger to get the ball rolling. I’m not so sure we’ll receive that trigger. We may see a few isolated cells throughout the afternoon, but the latest models have driven most of the afternoon storms far to our south. Our best chance for precipitation won’t arrive until the evening and overnight hours. It’s possible that some showers and storms may pop over the northern half of the viewing area after dinner time. Conditions by then will not be cohesive for severe thunderstorm development; the upper level jet will have shifted and the atmosphere will have begun to stabilize. That being said, some of the storms that develop later tonight could produce gusty winds and small hail. The low pressure system that’s caused the recent rash of severe weather across the Great Plains and Mid West will finally move eastward tomorrow. Its cold front will push through the region tomorrow bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms to the viewing area. Thursday looks drier with some lingering cloud cover; afternoon temperatures will have fallen to the upper 60s. We’ll stay in the mid to upper 60s for both Friday and Saturday as well as high pressure moves in from the Great Plains. The rest of the weekend looks warmer as that high positions itself to our east and brings southerly winds to Indiana.
