Spring freeze overnight as lows slip to the 20s
Warmer temperatures return Wednesday
- Hard freeze overnight
- High fire danger continues
- Watching severe risk for Thursday
Temperatures will be even colder tonight with lows slipping to the mid/upper 20s in most areas by sunrise Tuesday. Bring in the plants to avoid damage from the hard freeze. This would be cold enough to damage many budding fruit trees as well.
Winds slowly lighten Tuesday with increased clouds and continued dry conditions. We’ll start the day below freezing and only reach the mid 50s Tuesday. The fire danger also remains high through midweek. In the meantime, we will be watching a system to the west that will bring a warm front into the region Tuesday night. Only a few stray showers are possible during the overnight hours.
Temperatures slowly warm up by Wednesday with highs in the upper 60 to low 70s. We remain dry through midweek.
THURSDAY SEVERE RISK
Another powerful cold front stretches from Canada to the Gulf by the middle of the week. Another severe weather outbreak is setting up for the Plains and Deep South through midweek. By Thursday, the line of showers and storms makes its way into the region.
There are some signs this could be another instance of showers and strong storms as abnormally high instability could be around as the front passes through Thursday.
We will be monitoring for a possible Weather Alert Day for Thursday. Stay tuned!
