Long Range (MON-FRI): Period begins with a series of weak disturbances moving through the natural state as the natural state continues to sit on the outer edges of a strong southeast ridge. This will allow for chances of thunderstorms for all of the long range period with some isolated severe chances being possible as well, primary wind and hail. A stronger system may impact the natural state as we move towards the Tuesday timeframe especially across the southern half of the state. Given guidance trends, have decided to nearly max out rain chances for the southern half of the state. Some severe weather could be possible with this as well, we will be here keeping you updated. Temperatures will remain below normal during this period as well with temperatures beginning to increase as the ridge attempts to setup over the state as we move towards next weekend.
