We start the week of chilly with temperatures in the 30s and 40s early Monday, but a breeze out of the south will push temperatures well into the 70s each day Monday and Tuesday.

High temperature forecast for Monday and Tuesday

During that time, a storm system that’s produced everything from snow to high wind and wildfires will also produce the chance for damaging wind gusts and tornadoes within thunderstorms.

That risk is most prevalent in the Southern Plains Monday and closer to the Tennessee River Valley Tuesday.

Severe weather outlook across the country Monday and Tuesday

This same storm system grazes the area early Wednesday morning with just a few stray showers. Our threat for severe thunderstorms is all-but-zero.
