The front that caused the severe weather and thunderstorms in the midwest Sunday, will continue to bring in cooler air overnight. Monday will be an average May day,weatherwise, for all of the midwest. The atmosphere will become stabilized as the front moves through, so a couple dry days can be expected, before a warm front moves through midweek. Along with the warmth later this week the chance of thunderstorms is also prevalent. It looks like we are in this pattern for the foreseeable future...A warm up for several days, then thunderstorms along a cold front, then a cooler stretch after, an then another warm up as you may have guessed. Stay tuned to midwest weather talk for severe weather chance in the coming days.
