Another warm day is headed our way. Above normal temperatures will again top our Tuesday outlook, but a little higher humidity could make it feel even warmer than Monday. This mini surge in moisture could also spark a few isolated thunderstorms by late afternoon and evening. Wednesday will still remain very warm for late April and will also include the chance for afternoon/evening thunderstorms. I should add that some of these thunderstorms could reach severe limits today and tomorrow, but the main threat will come from large hail.

A strong cold front will bring us our best chance for thunderstorms by Thursday morning. Some of these storms at that time could bring in a threat for severe winds so stay tuned! Cooler and much drier spring air will arrive by Friday and should lead us into the weekend before another chance of storms by late on Sunday.
