Teachman’s Take: This Is May 1st, Really????
May 1, 2017

Flood Warnings remain in effect for all counties shaded in green.  Streams/creeks and rivers in these locations will remain high not only today, but into part of this week.  And while we may get a brief break, more rain by Wednesday will aggravate our on-going flooding issues.

A few spots of mist and showers are affecting our area this morning.  Any shower should taper by the lunch hour.  Temps will be chilly in the upper 30s and lower 40s this morning — definitely not feeling like the first of May.  Wind chills are in the 20s and 30s!!!

Clouds will start to clear by the lunch hour and clear completely by evening.  Highs this afternoon will be in the upper 50s.  Winds will be a gusty problem today.  Watch as the clouds break, the winds strengthen.  They will be from the west at 15 to 25 MPH with gusts to 35.


Sunshine dominates for much of Tuesday as temps rebound to near 70.  A strong storm system arrives Tuesday night and through the day on Wednesday.  This storm will produce HEAVY RAIN.  The line up for the heaviest will be along and south of I-70, which means areas hit the hardest by this last storm, will continue to see flooding problems.


This storm will depart early Thursday.  Sunshine returns Friday through the weekend.  We’ll be in the upper 60s Friday and middle 70s over the weekend.  The weekend will be a real treat after the one we had last weekend.  Another slight chance for a shower next Monday.

Take care,
