Easter Sunday will be met with active weather this year, thanks to a very potent spring storm system crossing the Mississippi. Most of your day will be filled with cloudy skies and off and on rain showers, but tonight and early tomorrow morning brings a strong to severe storm risk.
Storms will flare up from the heating of the day in the form of isolated to scattered storm cells. These cells will be capable of producing strong wind gusts and moderate hail. Heavy rain downpours and lightning will also be threats.
Later this evening, and overnight into Monday, a squall line setup will bring a wave of thunderstorms sweeping west to east across the state. This line of storms will produce strong to potentially severe wind gusts.
Rainfall amounts will be in the 0.50” to 1.50” range with higher amounts locally to 2.50.” Watch for high water after a long period of rain or a heavy downpour and remember to NEVER drive through a flooded roadway.
After the cold front passes, strong surface winds will continue. Gusts are possible Monday morning to 50 mph at times. A WIND ADVISORY will be in effect from 2:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Monday.
