Good Thursday, folks. We have another cold front dropping into the region and this will spawn more showers and storms from late today into Friday. Some of these storms may be on the strong side as more pleasant air follows the front to start the weekend.
Today is mainly dry until the evening as temps are deep into the 80s. Winds will be gusty ahead of the front with a mix of sun and clouds. A line of showers and storms will fire up to our northwest this afternoon and drop in here during the evening and overnight.
Some of these storms may be strong or severe, with the greatest risk being across the northern half of the state. Here’s the Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:
Damaging winds and large hail are the main threats to watch for. Any storm that’s out there will also spit out a lot of lightning and heavy rain. That heavy rain could cause local high water issues to develop.
Here are your Thursday storm tracking toys:
The threat for showers and storms will linger into Friday as the front sags farther south. We will need to be on guard for a complex of storms rolling eastward across the state. Keep that in mind. Temps come back down and should wind up feeling great later Friday into Saturday!
Temps recover quickly later Sunday into Monday as humidity levels climb. This may set the stage for northwest to southeast moving storms during this time. That would be ahead of another cold front sweeping in here by the middle of the week:
After some early week sizzle, the numbers come right back down:
Make it a great day and take care.
