Strong storms will start to develop to our west as early as Tuesday morning and approach the viewing area Tuesday afternoon to evening. We’ll be in tracking the storms so you’ll want to stay with StormTeam 7 ahead of this evolving storm system. *More Information On Timing Below*
Skies should finally begin to look a little clearer as we head into Monday but some clouds will remain with us the first part of the day slowly becoming a sun/cloud mix in the afternoon with highs ranging from 56-59 degrees.
Partly cloudy with lows in the lower 40’s and light southwest winds.

Tuesday night looks stormy with near 100 percent chance of rain and storms. Some storms may be severe. Lows 44-46.
TIMING OF STORMS TUESDAY:
Storms will continue to get more widespread and concentrated over the area as we go into the afternoon.
The tornado threat will mainly be for south of I-40 from around 3 pm through around 8 pm as the energy and ingredients enter more into the picture.
Futurecast continues to show a more linear event of straight line storms along the approaching cold front that will push through from around 8 pm and exit the area by around 1 am. Storms east and ahead of the cold front will still be capable of tornadoes followed by the potential for strong straight line winds late night.
We will continue to try to narrow down better timing as we move into the future.
Turning sharply colder with partly cloudy skies and highs only reaching the mid to upper 40’s
Mostly clear with lows in the lower to middle 20’s
Thursday looks dry and cool and clouds will return on Friday ahead of some scattered showers again next weekend.
