Suchan Says: Storms Remain Part of Our Forecast


Developing showers now and soon a few thunderstorms tonight

Much of Tuesday evening was cloudy, pleasant and also dry other than a few sprinkles and small scale light showers in southern sections.  Now the Plains to Midwest low level jet is kicking up and this should induce a scattering of showers and storms overnight with even a few lingering into daybreak.

At this point I do not expect widespread severe and certainly not a large scale set of storms like what rolled in early Tuesday morning.  Instead storms that develop tonight would be mainly elevated in nature above a leftover cap.  This relegates storms to mainly small hail, downpours and lightning when they get stronger but typically not damaging wind gusts.

Whatever is in place early in the day should tend to fade by midday leaving the afternoon partly sunny, breezy and seasonably hot in the 80s and lower 90s.  We’ll need to watch late day for the risk of scattered strong to possibly severe storms capable of large hail and damaging wind gusts.


Wednesday outlook. Next update comes after midnight from Storm Prediction Center


Showers and a few storms early tonight


Wednesday Morning: 30% showers or a few thunderstorms


Near Midday: Isolated rain chance


Late Afternoon: Isolated storm chance


Late Evening: Likely to see a bit more coverage than is seen here. I expect scattered storms across I-70 corridor into Iowa.
