Severe storms possible today

Good Thursday to one and all. It’s shaping up to be another busy day across the Commonwealth as showers and storms blow up. Some of these storms may be strong or severe this afternoon and evening.

Following today’s severe potential is a wet Mother’s Day Weekend. I’ll get to that in a bit. Let’s begin with today’s storms.

Damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes can’t be ruled out this afternoon and evening as storms develop. The greatest risk is across central and western parts of the state. Here’s the current Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

Heavy rains may also cause a few local high water issues to develop. Speaking of heavy rain, that looks to be the case for the weekend ahead.

This same front puts the brakes on across the state, leading to a few more showers early Friday. Low pressure develops along the front and rolls in here later Saturday into Sunday. Heavy rains appear to be a good bet, possibly leading to some flooding issues.

The European Model continues to show a lot of rain from today through Sunday:

Cool temps will accompany the rain and continue into next week. The European Model has a very cool Monday:

It even shows the possibility of upper 30s by Tuesday morning:
