Rounds of storms kick in

Good Wednesday to one and all. We have rounds of showers and storms ready to rumble across the state for the next few days. Some of the storms could be on the strong side ahead of a potent cold front sweeping in by Friday.

The first round of storms will move through today into the evening. Locally heavy rains will be possible with any storm that goes up. We also have a low-end risk for strong to severe storms.

Here are your tracking tools for the day:

Temps will generally be in the 60s as gusty southwest winds kick in.

A powerful storm will be rolling through the plains on Thursday, dragging a cold front in here on Friday. Temps hit the 70s for Thursday and Friday, but showers and storms will become more of an issue. We’ve been setting the stage for the possibility of severe storms and we are seeing that threat in the west on Thursday:

That risk area should get pushed east Thursday night and early Friday.

Heavy rainfall is likely during this time and the models certainly back that up, though the totals do differ on each run:

We will get a chilly break with the weekend weather, but that may only carry over into the first day or so of next week. Milder air means more rounds of storms on the way through the next few weeks. The GFS rainfall totals continue to put out region in the bullseye during this time:

Don’t pay much attention to the totals, but this is more about the consistent placement of the stormiest weather and heaviest rain.

Have a great day and take care.
