I hope everyone had a fantastic Easter with friends and family. It was also my twin nieces birthday so we had 3 reasons to celebrate. I put my diet on hold for a full day and now I'm back on the wagon. By the way, if you're wondering about "Toning Todd" which started last November, I'm down about 20 pounds. That's where I want to stay.
The weather this week is somewhat active, but nothing compared to the POTENTIAL for next week. It's wayyyyyyyy too early to pinpoint any specifics, but I can see both a severe weather and flooding threat setting up and I'll explain with maps below. Just as in previous storms this spring, the area of low pressure aloft may get cut off from the main flow. If this happens, we'll not only have the potential for severe weather, but also flooding. This depends very heavily on where everything sets up though. The flow ahead of the low will be out of the southwest and a front at the surface will not be able to move much. Several disturbances could move through that flow and produce multiple rounds of rain and storms. This would bring a threat for flooding and severe weather. Remember, we're almost a week away from this happening so a lot can change. Check out the maps below.
|The Storm Prediction Center has placed much of the same areas to our west under a risk for some severe weather late this week into the weekend. This is where the front will be positioned with disturbances causing trouble for them.|
