Temperatures will actually begin to rise through the evening as we prepare for a week with highs in the mid to upper 50's and lows that may not go below freezing.

An active jet stream and unusually balmy weather are to blame for the burst of deadly tornado activity, the storm prediction center said. The main threat will come from strong wind gusts; though hail and a spin-up tornado can not be ruled out. Showers and a few storms will also be possible on Sunday. "Hail up to half dollar size may occur as well", the National Weather Service said. This tells us that within embedded thunderstorms, damaging wind gusts will be possible, and an isolated brief tornado can not be ruled out either.

TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY: A return to quiet, more stable conditions appears likely with high pressure nosing in from the north. Look for highs in the 70s.
