Dry spell ends in a big way, active week of weather changes

Up and down temps, chance of flooding and damaging storm risk, colder on the weekend but mostly dry

Our long dry spell (12 consecutive dry days) is coming to an end and so are the May-like temperatures. I hope you heard my outlook for April/May and the preliminary Summer outlook on the radio this morning.

This week we have a series of wedge fronts and regular fronts with high and low pressure systems fighting.

We need the rain but not severe weather. IF we are lucky the wedge of cooler more stable air will help keep the worst severe weather to our West, but it’s too soon to know for sure. We need to monitor how strong the wedge is and how quickly it goes away to be replaced with more unstable air.

Today Monday is more dry than wet until tonight.

The “bowling ball” comes our way late Wednesday into Thursday:
