After a slight break in thunderstorm activity, another active weather pattern arrives Tuesday and continues through the end of the week.

The main upper air flow is transitioning Sunday morning and will become more from the west and northwest over the next few days. This pattern is very normal for late May and early June allowing disturbances to our northwest to move across the state and usually brings storm complexes across our region.

Storm Chance Timeline 5/26/2024

Based on this pattern and the consensus of most data, the probability for shower and storm activity will continue from Tuesday through the end of the week. Higher probabilities will mostly be the late night and early morning varieties.

Some severe threats will be possible, mostly in the form of damaging winds and heavy rainfall threats. The upper air flow should return from the southwest by late this week into next weekend, continuing a threat of some storm activity. Other than Sunday's highs in the lower 90s, most of our daytime temperatures will stay in the 80s for the next week.
