Severe weather moves in by evening commute

Severe weather moves in by evening commuteā€¯

While widespread severe weather is not likely, there is the threat of severe damaging wind gusts with this squall line. While wind gusts will be the main threat, there is also a low-end chance of a tornado too.

In addition, southwest winds will strengthen this afternoon in advance of the approaching storm system, with sustained winds in the 20 to 30 miles per hour range, with higher gusts, anticipated. This will increase the damaging winds threat as storms move across southeastern IL and western Kentucky. You can expect to hear thunder Tuesday night through very early Wednesday morning.

Another cold front will bring showers and storms this week after an absolutely lovely Easter weekend. The overnight low in the area was expected to bottom out at a frigid 28 degrees, well below normal and more than 35 degrees below the day's predicted high.

Temperatures for Thursday morning will start in the low to mid 40s for the Capital area, climbing into the low to mid 70s for the afternoon. And for next week, we've got yet another round of scattered rains arriving during the latter half of Monday and extending into the Tuesday morning.

Nussbaum says high temperatures will only be in the upper 60s. We will continue to tweak the forecast, and will have updates around the clock for you.

If the air column cools enough, we could see a bit of wet snow mix in or, if surface temperatures briefly cool to the freezing mark, even a bit of freezing rain. If you do not already have our Storm Team 4 Weather app, head to your app store and search "nbc4 wx" its free, and GREAT TOOL to have during severe weather season.
