Low confidence forecast for the next 24 to 36 hours as elevated warm front edges north tonight across the area and sfc warm front arrives late Tue afternoon into Tuesday night. A few CAMs suggest some widely scattered, elevated showers and storms developing on the nose of increasing 850 mb theta-e, spreading into SW parts of the area towards 12Z Tue and then working NE before weakening. Will maintain some low pops for consistency and blending with other offices, but think activity likely very limited with no severe threat. Additional showers and storms may develop on the sfc warm front and somewhat better influx of moisture Tuesday afternoon and evening, with most likely scenario being convection advecting in from the west (initiation over E IA into W IL) vs developing overhead or just to the SW. Have kept pops somewhat limited at this point with likely pops far SW late Tuesday afternoon and ramping up Tuesday night.
Confidence in coverage, intensity and longevity of upstream convection into the area remains low as it outruns the more favorable environment, despite strong shear over the area in the vicinity of the northward advancing front. Do expected elevated showers and isolated storms to advance through the area through 6Z with trends continuing to suggest a faster progress east or weakening trend after 6Z. Have maintained categorical pops Tuesday night, but tried to add some resolution (3 hour blocks) and trend slowly downward with eastward extent. Do suspect pops could be very overdone (warranting no more than likely west to chc east), but again for sake of consistency and blending will let later shifts see what, if any changes are needed as many mesoscale details remain troublesome. New SPCDY2 marginal risk area has been trimmed somewhat, limiting to far SW counties mainly during the evening hours. Any threat would involve isolated hail to 1" in diameter given the elevated nature.

Confidence does continue to increase somewhat as the area resides in the warm sector of the approaching system (sfc low likely somewhere over SE Minnesota around 12Z Wed). Effective shear on the order of 40 kts or more near/along the cold front will help with potential organization of convection that should develop in the 15-18Z window to the west of the area and then move quickly east. Main challenges on coverage and intensity of the storms will lean on if the advertised low to maybe mid 60 dewpoints advect in along and ahead of the front and if we can see sufficient clearing (even partial) to allow for greater MLCAPE to take shape. SWODY3 outlook of slight risk in the SE appears reasonable as this is the most likely area that can recover and have sufficient time to see the arrival of the moisture. Damaging winds and large hail would be the main threats, but an isolated tornado is possible. While heavy rain will accompany the storms, think everything will move along fast enough to limit residence time over any given area. Will need to monitor trends but no flood watches should be needed.

Compared to the next couple of days, remainder of the forecast period will be much quieter as the region will be dominated by a northwestern flow associated with a deep upper low that will remain in Canada and eventually move to Hudson Bay. This will bring some light shower chances Thursday into Friday along with falling temperatures (eventually below normal). With the growing season now officially underway, we will need to monitor for frost potential late in the forecast period, but plenty of time to sort this out.

VFR conditions are expected at the TAF sites, with N-NW winds shifting to the ESE through the period. Gusts up to around 20-25 knots are possible Tuesday afternoon.
