The Atlantic Basin continues to remain quiet today and no tropical activity is anticipated over the next 5 days.

    Staying Quiet for Saturday

    With no systems to bother us for Saturday, we'll have a mostly sunny day lined up as temperatures look to climb into the middle 60s. Across the rest of the country, a few areas of expected t-storms have been outlined. In the Desert Southwest, warmth and moisture at the surface interacting with mid-level cooling will spark some scattered t-storms Saturday afternoon and into Saturday evening.

    Friday, October 5 2018 4:25 PM EDT2018-10-05 20:25:43 GMT

    The Elevated category appears near the Great Lakes as a low pressure system pushes from west to east. As it does and sags south toward the Four States our storms will form early Thursday morning and roll through until the afternoon.

  • Rain Chances Want to Stick Around Into Next Week

    Rain Chances Want to Stick Around Into Next Week

    Friday, October 5 2018 5:10 PM EDT2018-10-05 21:10:28 GMT

    With quite a few systems on the way over the next several days, we have the chance to pick up on some accumulating rainfall. Considering how relatively dry we've been over the past several days and how the area is about 9 inches behind in yearly rainfall, this would be a good chance to start catching up. We have some t-storm chances late Wednesday evening and into Thursday followed by more rain chances Saturday and going into early next week. A fresh look at potential rain amounts goi...

    Severe Weather Chances Stay Away for Wednesday

    Friday, October 5 2018 5:11 PM EDT2018-10-05 21:11:13 GMT

    Heading into Wednesday, we'll have our front to the north start to return late in the evening and into Thursday morning. For us, we'll have t-storm chances return in that time-frame. We won't have to deal with any severe weather, though, as the better chances look to stay north of us. The Storm Prediction Center has a good severe risk outlined from northeastern KS stretching up into Lake Michigan. The better severe weather chances will be confined to the slight and enhanced risks from...

    A Look at the Tropics - October 2nd

    A look at the Tropics on this October 2nd continues to show a fair amount of activity in both the Atlantic and Pacific. Starting in the Atlantic, we have Tropical Storm Leslie still wandering around in open waters. The 10 AM CST Advisory showed Leslie with maximum sustained wind speeds of 65 mph and a minimum central pressure of 989 millibars. With the environment Leslie has to work with, it will become a hurricane either tonight or as we work into Wednesday. While the forecast track ...

    Tuesday afternoon brings increased clouds, but no break from the heat

    Friday, October 5 2018 5:10 PM EDT2018-10-05 21:10:50 GMT

    If anything, the clouds later today lock in the heat from the morning sunshine and keep us in the 70s overnight, so while it be much warmer than usual, it should feel perfect for the Wednesday morning commute.
