Forecast: Tornado watch issued as severe storms take aim


The daytime reprieve from rainfall should repeat Monday, but another round of thunderstorms is expected to roll in overnight then.

Tuesday, which should have a high near 72 degrees, will be the last chance for thunderstorms before the metro area dries out Wednesday and Thursday. Unfortunately in these areas, these conditions will allow the atmosphere to become fairly unstable, and as a wave of low pressure moves eastward along the warm front, scattered showers and storms will bubble up and move through.

The National Weather Service says a severe thunderstorm watch means storms are possible in and near that area, while a severe thunderstorm warning means storms are occurring or imminent in that area.

The temperature will range from a daytime high of 60 to a nighttime low of 50.

The spokesman went on to describe the strikes as "one of the largest" air attacks by the Israeli Air Force in recent years. Iran has an advantage here because it is already on the winning side in the wars in Syria and Iraq.

Mother's Day will see slightly higher temperatures as the high will be near 68 degrees with a slight chance of showers. Temperatures will range between the upper 60s to the lower 70s. The temperature will be 63 degrees.

MONDAY: Showers and thunderstorms late.

Today - Showers and thunderstorms. Chance of precipitation is 80%. Rainfall amounts between a half and three quarters of an inch are possible. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 61.

While the forecast is long term, the weather service is calling for a return to the 80s by Friday.
