Weather Outlook: Warm front arrives late tomorrow, bringing rain

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00
Rising river levels have led to Flood Warnings on the Chippewa at Eau Claire and Durand.

A very dangerous situation is ongoing in the plains, where a “High Risk” for severe weather has been issued by the Storm Prediction Center from northern Texas through central Oklahoma. Several strong tornadoes are likely this afternoon there.

The low pressure system causing all of this will be heading our way. Currently, we’re north of the warm front and our temperatures have been cool as a result, especially overnight. The warm front will push north tomorrow, and we should stay dry for the most part, and still below average temperatures.

That front pushes through tomorrow night, bringing a line of scattered showers and thunderstorms. A few showers could hang around Wednesday, but it should be drying out. Most of Thursday looks dry, too, with increasing chances for rain in the evening, becoming likely overnight into the first half of Friday.

Temperatures will finally be warming up, and the end of Friday through most of Sunday looks dry, so while an early look at the Memorial Day Weekend doesn’t have the best outlook, it could be worse.
