Today’s the calmest day of the week – watching severe risk Tuesday, especially Wednesday

Another very warm day for late April is upon us with temperatures in the upper 80s expected inland; a couple 90 degree readings wouldn’t be far-fetched either. Closer to the coast, the cooler Atlantic waters will keep temperatures moderated into the upper 70s to low 80s. The seabreeze may kick off a storm or two as well, but most will stay dry. All in all, today will likely be more reminiscent of late May than late April.

This week looks pretty unsettled, with shower and thunderstorm chances ramping up Tuesday-Thursday. We all need to pay attention to Wednesday (and if you’re further inland, Tuesday as well) for the potential for strong to severe thunderstorms. It’s not a bad idea to review your severe weather plan — it is Spring, after all — and make sure your reliable weather sources (NOAA Weather Radio, smartphone app of choice, etc.) are in good working order. More on this later this evening…
