We could be making a run towards the warmest day so far of 2021. Skies will remain clear through much of the daylight hours. All the while, winds could gust as high as 30 MPH. The mercury will only dip to the lower-50s for tonight as our next storm system moves in.
Round 1 of showers and storms will arrive in the Tri State by 6AM tomorrow. Heavy rain will impact your morning drive. The area will catch an intermediate break from storms by noon. As of 9AM, the Storm Prediction Center has much the Tri State under a "2" and "3" on the Threat Index. Communities like Princeton (Caldwell Co.), Madisonville and Greenville are under a "3". Those locations have the best chances of seeing stronger storms by tomorrow evening. The severe weather threat will be conditional, if we receive peaks of sunshine through the afternoon hours tomorrow that will increase our chances. However, if cloud coverage and rain remain dominate in the area that will limit our severe weather threat. Regardless, you will want to remain weather alert by the evening.
The latest timeline has the second round of storms moving in around 5PM and lasting through 10PM. One of the primary threats we will be monitoring will be widespread flash flooding. Many locations could see 1-3" of rain. Between the hours of 5PM and 10 PM the second wave of storms could pack damaging wind gust and isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out.
