Unsettled Week Ahead

It appears that we could have an active week in the weather department.

We are going to have several front try to push through southeast Missouri, southern Illinois, western Kentucky, and northwest Tennessee. But as usual, the fronts won't push all the way through the area. Instead, they will stall out over the area and act as a boundary to fire up storms. Then the stalled front will lift north in advance of another front.

This will allow for nearly daily chances of severe thunderstorms. Take a look at the outlooks over the next couple of days by the Storm Prediction Center.

Day 1 Outlook - 7am Monday through 7am Tuesday

Day 2 Outlook - 7am Tuesday through 7am Wednesday

Day 3 Outlook - 7am Wednesday through 7am Thursday

Generally speaking, the main threat from storms over the next couple of days will be large hail.
