(WOWK) — After some really cold days earlier in the week, the new week will kick off with a summer-like thunderstorm producing pattern. Large complexes of thunderstorms are expected to develop across the Midwest and flow southeast into our area starting Sunday, and temperatures will likely stay very warm even after the rain.
The first of these storm complexes appears to be coming in as early as late morning Sunday. See the slide show below for the latest model projections with timing and placement of storms.
Storms on Sunday could be severe in some areas and the initial outlook for severe weather shows a marginal risk (category 1 out of 5) for northern parts of the area based on the chance for damaging wind gusts.
It appears this weather pattern will persist with storms coming from the northwest until late Tuesday. This means there could be substantial rainfall amounts over this timeframe. There could be some localized flooding if storms continue to form and move over the same areas in repetition.
