We will be watching a storm system that will move through the state mid week, which may provide a chance of severe storms. A warm front will lift into the state Wednesday, which will place portions of the state in the warm sector. This will provide fuel for thunderstorms and potentially severe storms.

The longer range models are not in agreement with the placement of the warm front and low. The GFS is further to the north, which places the eastern half of the state in the risk of severe weather. The ECMWF is further to the south, and only has the warm front making it only to I-80, which would place the severe threat south of interstate 80 and east of I-35.

Depending where this warm sector sets up, is where the greatest risk of severe weather will occur. We will continue to keep an eye on this in the coming days, but wanted to give you a heads up if you have plans mid-week.
