May 23rd Weather: Severe Weather and heavy rainfall

Tag: severe weather

The weekend went out with a bang with over 4.50 inches of rainfall since Sunday afternoon. This morning and the first part of the afternoon will be dry but thunderstorms will pop up later today and those storms could be severe. Those storms could produce strong winds, large hail and there is the possibility of tornadoes. May severe weather began with a bang yesterday with the city of Joplin Missouri being devastated by a F4 tornado and the death toll is near 100 now. The month of May started out calm but this week could be a historic week when it comes to severe weather. Read more »

May 19th: The end is near!

The end is near when it comes to the cool and damp weather. We may actually see a few peaks of sunshine on Thursday and highs will finally make it into the 60's.  By Friday things will become even nicer with highs in the upper 70's.  This weekend looks nice with upper 70's and low 80's for highs and we will start have daily chances of thunderstorms. Next week the risk of severe weather will increase across the region. I will keep an eye on that! Thanks for reading!

May 17th Weather:Cool then a warm up

Tag: Cool, Monroe, Weather

We had a very unseasonable day across the area with highs in the low 50's over 20 degrees below normal for this time of year. Tuesday will be a repeat but we may have more in the way of showers around throughout the day. If we can make it through Tuesday by Wednesday things should start to warm up and may see a few peaks of sunshine. The end of the week will be nice but we will have slight threats of a few showers and storms but highs will get back into the 70's. 80's will make a return for the week but the threat of thunderstorms will increase.

Weekend Weather Outlook: Showery and cool week ahead

I hope everyone enjoyed the warm and dry weather we had over the past several days because we are going back into a very cool and showery pattern. Highs will only be in the 50's and 60's Sunday-Tuesday with on and off chances of showers. We will not see much in the way of sunshine over the next few days. Warmer weather should get back into the area as end the week and get into next weekend. I think the chance of showers and thunderstorms could exist through the weekend. I hope you didn't put the jackets away because you are going to need them over the next few days. Read more »

May 12th: Warmer weather and storms

We had a warm and humid day across the region but nothing we cannot handle. Mid 80's and humid conditions is nothing unusual for the Ohio Valley. Thursday will be similar to Wednesday with highs in the 80's with a 30% chance of storms. Better chance on Friday and especially by the weekend. Much cooler weather invades the area next week. Thanks for reading!

This upcoming weekend will be better than the past few weekends with more sun then rain being quite possible. We will see daily chances of showers and storms but we will see periods of sunshine throughout the weekend. Next week looks warm with upper 70's and 80's dominating! We will still stand a decent chance of seeing showers and thunderstorms throughout the week. Severe weather is very possible anytime next week. I have no specific dates pin pointed yet for severe weather but as the time gets closer I will have a better idea. Thanks for reading!
