Good Thursday to one and all. We have a very ugly weather day taking shape across our region. Rounds of showers and low temps will be noted out there, then we focus on the holiday weekend, which is likely to feature additional severe weather.
Highs Thursday will struggle into the 60- to 65-degree range, with showers and gusty winds. Locally heavy rainfall is possible across north central parts of the state.
Friday will bring much warmer air into town, with readings heading toward 80 degrees. A storm or two is possible by the time we get into Friday evening.
The severe weather threat will increase Saturday and Sunday as rounds of storms rumble in:
This is a significant signal showing up for severe weather and flash flooding. Look at the GFS rain forecast for Saturday and Sunday:
There’s the potential for some rough-and-tumble weather this weekend, so stay alert in the coming days.
Much cooler air then comes in behind all this for the first half of next week. Check out the deep trough in the east:
That trough hangs tough as warm air develops across the Deep South. That’s likely to set up a battle zone on top of us, with additional clusters of showers and storms:
Some of the model runs are really putting it down over the next 10 days:
Have a great day and take care.
