Good morning bloggers,

We hope you had a safe and nice weekend. The weather was really awesome Saturday and Sunday, and now, here comes a big warm up. The warm up will come with high humidity. Here is what typically happens during our sixth month of the year:

By the end of the month, the jet stream retreats north, and summer begins. When the jet stream lifts north, tornado season ends. We still have to pay close attention to the next few weeks, however. There is a risk of severe thunderstorms on Wednesday. Take a look:

There is a slight risk of severe thunderstorms Wednesday. The main risk is for some damaging winds. We do not see any significant tornado risk at this moment. A weak cold front will stall near KC, and this may provide the focus for some bigger thunderstorms. The humidity will be very high this week, so the fuel is there for thunderstorms by around Wednesday.

There is activity over the tropics, and we are monitoring this area closely for development. The weather pattern is cycling perfectly, according to the LRC, and a potential named storm has been in our forecast for 8 months, to happen around June 5-10. Here is the forecast from one of our models in one week:

Expect a big warm up to near 90 degrees from Tuesday through Wednesday and then that chance of thunderstorms on Wednesday. We will go in-depth on 41 Action News today and tonight!

Thank you for spending a few minutes of your day reading the Action Weather Blog. Have a great start to the week.
