Buh-bye Winter! The Vernal Equinox hits at 11:49 pm tonight. It’s the earliest on the calendar that it’s been since 1896. Hey, any potential good news is welcome this week. “Spring” begins when the sun’s rays shine directly on the equator.
Not much sun expected today, as active weather continues. Rain in the late morning and midday, and rain plus storms tonight that could be severe. First, the expected radar trends from Thursday midday through Friday afternoon.
The biggest tornado potential seems to be in the western part of the state and into Illinois late Thursday night and early Friday morning.
Beside the chance of severe weather (the latest Storm Prediction Center is outlook is here) there is the threat of big rain. Add these totals to what we got on Wednesday.
The temperature will drop during the day Friday behind the strong cold front. The 60s in the morning…to the 20s by Saturday morning.
