More storms for the weekend

Good Friday, everyone. Our 4th of July is now behind us, but the holiday weekend is still alive and well. Unfortunately, the threat for thunderstorms is still alive and well. Boomers will continue to blow up on occasion over the next several days.

Storms are scattered early on today but will increase this afternoon and evening. A few strong or locally severe storms are possible with high winds the main thing to watch for. These storms are also loaded with lightning and torrential rains that can cause local flash flooding.

The forecast for Saturday and Sunday is for more of the same. It won’t rain all the time, but when it does, it’s gonna come down hard.

We may see a break in the action early next week as temps and humidity levels come down a bit. The setup for later next week is going to try to put a trough in the eastern part of the country, but the tropics may have something to say about that.

The setup looks to be conducive for something to form across the southeast or in the Gulf of Mexico. The European Model is now latching on to that idea and even tries to bring the leftovers toward our region:

If that happens, it would make it harder for a tough to really dig in here, but could mean something for us to watch from the tropics.
