Wilmoth: Rain and high temps to return Monday

Posted April 2

— Sunday's dry and sunny weather may not stick around throughout the work week ahead, according to WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth.

"It does look like we have the potential for severe storms ahead," Wilmoth said. "We have a marginal risk, but the majority of severe storms will be south of us."

"Our best chance for storms will be late Monday and early Tuesday as well."

Wilmoth said mostly likely the area will not see heavy rain until around 8 p.m. Monday. She said the weather has the potential of bringing hail and strong winds.

Monday's temperatures should be mild and skies should be partly cloudy throughout the day with even warmer temperatures than the weekend.

"It will really be a warm day for us Tuesday," Wilmoth said. "There will again be a chance of rain and then the potential of severe thunderstorms on Wednesday into Thursday."

Despite the rain expected to fall throughout the week ahead, temperatures will be much warmer, with highs sticking in the 70s and 80s through Thursday.

    Well this first system coming through overnight Monday into Tuesday morning is going to be trouble too it looks like - the warm sector it will have in it is very juicy and this will be a sharp/strongly pronounced warm front with extreme shear and high dewpoint contrasts north to south. As soon as this airmass moves into our area, we are basically potentially in trouble with regards to tornadic supercells. Two nights of danger this week, this being the first Monday after sunset into sunrise Tuesday. The second dangerous system and its warm sector is forecast move into our area overnight Wednesday into Thursday before sunrise, as of now.
    Southern Alabama could be upgraded to HIGH RISK tomorrow if Storm Prediction Center thinks mesoscale details that become known in the morning support it. an even larger threat for us 'downstream' (northeast) OVERNIGHT - we all need to watch this I think now.
    Back to back tornado outbreak systems and we're just in week 1 of April unbelievable it really is
