Showers and thunderstorms will overspread the region tonight ahead of a strong cold front progressing across the Midwest. Rainfall amounts with these storms will ran from 0.25-0.75”, with locally higher amounts over 1.00” possible. Rain will gradually diminish in coverage Sunday, with skies beginning to clear by late afternoon.
Starting Sunday October 22st and lasting until Tuesday October 24th, a mandatory upgrade to the KDVN Doppler radar will begin. This is one of four major upgrades that will replace obsolete technology and extend the life of the WSR-88D fleet into the 2030s. The start of the upgrade has been delayed so that we can monitor Saturday evening’s storm potential.
A cool front will pass tonight bringing periods of showers and embedded storms. Most locations will receive moderate rain totals of .25 to .75 inches with some locations over 1 inch possible before daybreak with cooler temperatures by morning. The strongest storms may produce gusty winds over 30 mph.
Fall will definitely be making its presence known this coming week with regards to our high temperatures. By Tuesday, some locations may not even hit 50°F! Keep in mind that our average highs this time of year are in the upper 50s to lower 60s.
