Here comes a cold front

Good Friday, folks. We have a potent cold front sweeping across the state today, bringing the potential for a few strong storms. As we get into the weekend, things look better, but I have some changes to your Sunday setup.

A line of potentially strong to severe storms is working across the state from west to east early today. This will weaken the farther east it gets. We should get a break in the action with temps hitting the 70s ahead of our cold front. As that front slides in, additional showers and storms develop across the eastern half of the state. Some of these may also be strong.

Here’s today’s Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:

In addition to the severe threat, watch for too much rain that can cause local flash flooding issues.

Much colder air then moves in behind the front with readings at or below freezing for some by Saturday morning. The rest of Saturday looks pretty good with some sun and temps ranging from the upper 40s to middle 50s.

I do have some changes for Sunday. A developing storm system will throw clouds in here with the chance for some rain by evening. This looks like a shower maker through early Monday:

Temps rebound VERY quickly behind this, but additional rounds of strong storms are possible as the week wears on. Temps may hit the 70s next week.

That’s all part of a warmer than normal setup that continues to show up. Look at the 10 day temp anomalies from the Euro Ensembles:

That goes into the first few days of April.
