Cool & Windy Start To The Week

Updated by KSFY Meteorologist Liz Whalley on Sunday, April 19 at 6:10 PM

We finally got some of that moisture we needed yesterday and it certainly greened up a lot of the ground. A good majority of us picked up a quarter to a half inch of rain! The big story today and tomorrow is the wind.

Tonight we will see a decrease in clouds as we go throughout the night and the wind will also die down to 10-15 mph after midnight. We will bottom out in the mid to upper 30s

Cool and windy weather will stick around on Monday. A cold front will slide through Monday which will keep temperatures in the low 50s but also kick that wind back up to 25-35 mph.

A cool and dry pattern sets in for the rest of the week. Temperatures will be below average all week in the 50s. Then we will sit around average heading into the weekend as temperatures climb into the low 60s.

New SPC Severe Risk Category Definitions

Updated: 04/02/2015 - About 6 months ago the Storm Prediction Center changed the way they categorize severe weather risk. Here are the official definitions of the new categories:

Gorgeous Today... Much Needed Rain this Weekend

Today's forecast has a little something for everyone: Today is going to be another absolutely gorgeous, warm, non-windy day. The weekend will bring rain. I know the timing might not be the best, but we really, really need it. Today will be partly to mostly cloudy with high temperatures in the low 70s. Like yesterday, the wind will be a nonissue, from the east to northeast at 5 to 15 mph. Considering our weekend forecast, today would be a good day to put some fertilizer on the lawn.
