A thunder maker on the way

Good Tuesday to one and all. We have a fairly nice day taking shape across the region, but this nice weather will soon give way to some thunderstorms. Those storms are ahead of a cold front that brings a cold blast to start the month of April.

Highs Tuesday will make a run toward 60 degrees in many areas. Highs on Wednesday will spike into the 65- to 70-degree range, with winds and clouds on the increase. This is ahead of showers and storms rolling into the region.

The NAM simulated radar from Wednesday night into Thursday:


Heavy rainfall is a good bet with that setup.

Skies try to clear up by Thursday afternoon as the cold front approaches from the west. If that’s the case, highs could spike into the 70s with a possible line of strong storms by evening:

NAM 2Temps behind this look chilly, but nowhere near as cold as what recent computer model forecasts have shown. Below-normal temps could take us into the 20s for lows on Saturday:
