May 23rd, 2016 by Ric Hanson

Forecasters say stormy weather is ahead this week for much of the state along with warmer temperatures and higher humidity levels. Meteorologist Kevin Skow, at the National Weather Service, says some parts of the state were seeing dark clouds already this (Monday) morning.

Skow says, “Today will be just the first of a series of rounds of thunderstorms that will be impacting the state throughout much of the work week.” There’s a chance of severe weather in addition to drenching rains that could bring flash flooding.

“There could be some localized heavy amounts of rainfall,” Skow says. “These storms may be slowly moving at times and total amounts of rainfall could easily be an inch in many locations with localized amounts higher than that.”

After highs across the state last week in the 60s and 70s, this week will be much more summer-like, with highs expected in the 70s and low 80s.
