Fair tonight with showers and possible thunderstorms on Thursday!

Wednesday, April 26, 2017 –

Good afternoon.  It certainly has been a beautiful afternoon.  We had high pressure dominate the area today which brought sunny skies and warm temperatures to the region.

Take a look at this satellite from NOAA today.  You can see the clouds across the Mississippi Valley today.  That is where a cold front is located at.  That front moves east and will bring scattered showers and storms to our area tomorrow.

Temperatures stay warm through the weekend.

Here is a look at the Storm Team Forecast maps for tonight through Thursday.
