Morning Forecast/Discussion, 4/29/2024

Good Morning, Cardinal Country! A frontal system draws near to the Midwest & Ohio Valley, carrying with it increasing levels of moisture. This is the system responsible for the severe weather experienced all weekend in the Great Plains states with several destructive tornadoes alongside large to very large hail & at times, even destructive straight-line winds. None of that should happen closer to home & nationwide, the largest risk is a level 1/5 or marginal risk deep in the Southeast. The severe weather risk is highest from southern Texas into eastern Louisiana & southern Mississippi.

Locally, we are not expecting severe storms, but there are storm chances nonetheless as upper-level energy rides into an area of increasing moisture around us. Instability should be on the low side, which helps preclude storms from attaining severe weather characteristics. Showers and storms should produce locally heavy downpours, so it’s a day where we watch for ponding of water on roadways, driving carefully as well as keeping the umbrella handy. Temperatures remain in the 70s under clouds that look to be persistent, and temperatures may fall a bit in heavier rainfall before recovering in any clearing of the activity we have. Some is on it’s way as of this writing, but the better chances should arrive this evening.
