Warm and stormy setup ahead

Good Wednesday, folks. We have a brief blast of chilly weather settling into the region, but this air won’t last very long. Our pattern is about to turn warm and stormy by the weekend. This looks to be a sign of the weather times as we roll forward.

Highs Wednesday will be in the mid and upper 40s in many areas, and in the low 50s in the south. Partly cloudy skies will rule the day. Temps will drop into the upper 20s by Thursday morning, with milder temps settling in by the afternoon. Highs will be in the low 60s. Friday looks windy and warm, with highs hitting the 70s. Clouds will increase ahead of a storm system rolling in for the weekend. Showers and thunderstorms will become common by Saturday night and Sunday:

A few strong storms will be possible this weekend. Highs stay in the upper 60s to the low 70s.

Several systems will then roll across the region over the next 10 days. Each could bring some strong storms and heavy rainfall. Look at the rain forecast map during this time:

To illustrate the warm potential in this pattern, watch the GFS ensembles through the first few days of April:

Have a great Wednesday and take care.
