Teachman’s Take: Strong Storms & Potential Flooding
May 10, 2017

Scattered showers & storms will begin to develop as we get closer to the lunch hour.  Our environment this afternoon & evening is conducive for ANY storm to produce hail/gusty winds & heavy rain.  There’s no one place to pinpoint because just about all of our viewing area has the potential through late evening.  


Today’s severe storm risk has been trimmed back just a hair for our counties southeast of the metro:


From midnight through dawn, heavy rain will be shifting east.  The heaviest will line up along and north of I-70.  


I’m expecting anywhere from a half inch to as much as 2″ to fall in some spots through Thursday evening.  

By Thursday evening, another wave of rain will develop well south of I-70.  

We’ll be on a drying trend through the weekend.  Temperatures will start to recover Friday as we’re back into the 70s.  It will be another “Top 10 Weekend” of spring with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s.  Next Monday looks dry with highs in the middle 80s.  Storms reappear Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the lower 80s.  

Take care,
