Rain Chances Rising This Week

A strong upper-air low in the southern branch of the jet stream is meandering across the Southern Plains tonight.  As it nears us this week, rain chances will gradually rise through tomorrow, Wednesday and Thursday.  Showers and storms could be heavy at times!  While we don’t expect the same kind of powerhouse hail and wind storms that developed on Saturday afternoon, it’s definitely possible that some storms could briefly turn severe with gusty winds and some hail at any time through Thursday evening.

The upper-air low will pass overhead in the morning hours on Good Friday; underneath it, there is still a risk of a few morning showers.  Once it passes, we look for dry weather through Easter Sunday morning.  There is a chance, based on some longer-range modelling, that a few showers may move toward the Tennessee Valley late Sunday into Monday of next week.
