Strong thunderstorms expected overnight and tomorrow
By Steve Norris
MADISON – Another big rain system is expected to move in Wednesday night and Thursday with amounts of 1 to 2 inches possible. This would push our rainfall for the month into the above normal category and that would mean we have seen above normal rainfall for seven consecutive months, that is amazing.
We have another system to watch next weekend with showers and storms possible but it is too early to tell if we will get severe weather but it does appear likely that somewhere in the southeastern United States it will be likely.
We will continue to be in our tornado season until about mid-May and then the heat and humidity begin to take over.
It is looking like we are in for a hot summer according to the upper air weather pattern that I am seeing, a good year for comparison would be 1998 and that year we had 90s and near 100 off and on from June through September.
The Hurricane season is also looking above normal and that could be a real problem with Covid-19 making it very difficult to set up Hurricane shelters and continue social distancing and many supplies could be even harder to find than usual.
