A few severe storms possible late Friday

Good Friday, folks. A strong cold front is dropping in from the northwest and could bring a potent line of storms. This line might pose a damaging wind threat, before our weather pattern turns much better for the weekend.

Some sunshine Friday will help destabilize the atmosphere. Combine that with very high humidity and a cold front dropping in, and you could see some strong to severe storms. The most likely time for severe weather is late afternoon into the evening.

In addition to the severe storms threat, very heavy rain will be possible again.

Much better air moves in for the weekend, with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Humidity levels will come way down, with a mix of sun and clouds around.

A storm chance returns by Sunday night, and this will lead us into another very stormy pattern. The setup for next week features heat in the Plains and a chill in the Great Lakes. That usually means we have to be on guard for big storm clusters diving in from the northwest:

Some could be strong, with additional heavy rain a possibility.

Have a great Friday and take care.
