An advancing warm front, with plenty of heat and increasing humidity, may ignite thunderstorms tonight. Be aware for developing thunderstorms, mainly after dark. The greatest threat from strong storms appears to be large hail.
Heat and humidity dominate Monday and Tuesday in the southern half of Minnesota before a cold front slices through the upper Midwest on Wednesday.
What exactly do those colors mean? A little context to what we're looking at would be fabulous.
@Michael - see the legend of the map in the lower right corner. The green indicates that thunderstorms are possible. The Yellow indicates that there is a slight chance for severe thunderstorms to form.
Craig sourced this map from the National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center's Convective Outlook website. There is a wealth of information there, but much of it can take some time and research to interpret correctly.
Thanks Eric. I'm so immersed in weather that I just assumed after months of severe weather in the US and Paul's previous blogs that this map could stand alone. However a blogger must consider that each post should be independent from previous post..
Let's see what the overnight brings.
