April 4, 2010

The month of March ended with 2.36″ of total precipitation, 0.29″ short of the normal amount of precipitation that falls during the month (2.65″). In particular, the last half of the month (3/16-3/31) featured only 0.56″ of precipitation.

Moderate rain during the morning of 4/3 brought an end to the brief dry spell, and waves of thunderstorms are expected to bring more rain to the area this week.

The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, OK is currently predicting a slight possibility (15% chance of a severe event within 25 miles of Carol Stream) of severe weather during the evening of Monday, April 5, and again on Tuesday, April 6.

Severe weather for Monday may take the form of large hail, strong winds, and an isolated tornado. Stay tuned to the latest NWS forecasts for more details tomorrow and during the day on Monday.
