I'm a CMU Honors student and love meteorology and extreme weather. I've been fascinated by weather since I was 5, and plan on becoming a meteorologist

A warm front will be moving through the area over the next couple days. Then the low pressure itself should move somewhere in our area. This will bring a period of rain and thunderstorms to the area. Some of the storms will be strong to severe on Monday and Wednesday. The dynamics won't be great, but the chance for isolated large hail or a damaging wind gust is there. Heavy rain is also an issue from any storm that develops. Several inches of rain will likely have fallen by the end of the week. Once Thursday night rolls around, the atmosphere should get cool enough for snow to start mixing in. Friday will be our coldest day of the week and will have mix precipitation. Luckily, the weekend should be warming up and staying dry.
Monday: Thunderstorm developing during the afternoon. Isolated strong to severe storms possible. Chance of rain 100% and chance of snow 00%. The high will be near 60F. Winds should be 5-10mph. Rainfall up to a half an inch.
Monday night: Rain and thunderstorms. Isolated strong to severe storms early. Winds will be 10-20mph. The low temperature will be around 42F. Chance of rain 80% and chance of snow 0%.
Tuesday: Rain and thundershowers likely. High near 63F with winds around 5mph. Chance of rain 60% and chance of snow 0%.
