Temperature-wise, this week is going to be a roller coaster! Afternoon highs will warm-up starting Monday through Thursday before cooler temperatures roll in for Friday and Saturday. The good news is that through the weekend, temperatures aren’t going to stay on the cool side - some warmer temperatures will be moving in for Sunday and even into next week.

The rainy conditions aren’t going to be as up and down as the temperatures.

Monday morning’s rain chances start to dwindle out some for the afternoon and Tuesday but once the rain starts again - it will be sticking around for a little while longer.

Starting late Tuesday through Friday afternoon, showers and storms are going to be possible across the area. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are the days that the FOX23 Severe Weather Team is expecting the highest rain and storm chances.

Late Wednesday night into Thursday morning, some storms will be possible with some large hail possible. The timing of these storms and how long they stick around will impact the storm chances through Thursday afternoon as well.

Thursday is the day that we are expecting the chance for some severe weather to be possible. Hail, heavy rain, and strong winds are going to be the biggest concerns with these storms.

The heavy rain could lead to some flooding in some areas, especially along some of the rivers due to the already soaked ground and the dormant vegetation.

By the time next weekend rolls around, things should be dry again allowing for some of the water levels to go down.
