Very warm with a storm chance

Good Friday, everyone. We have another windy and warm day in store for the region, but a few thunderstorms try to crash the spring party for some. Beyond today, we have a couple of storm systems on the way from Saturday night through Wednesday.

Temps today are the big storm. The west and south can settle into the 80-85 degree range, while the north shoots for the low and middle 70s. That’s an area where we have a shot at a few storms going up.  There’s still the chance for a few strong storms in the north. Here’s the Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:

As we head into Saturday, we have another very windy and warm day taking shape on a strong southwest flow. This is ahead of a potent storm wrapping up from the plains states and moving into the Ohio Valley. That drags a cold front across the state Saturday night with a line of strong to severe storms possible:

Here’s the Saturday risk for Severe Storms from the Storm Prediction Center:

Again, that risk would roll east into the wee hours of Sunday morning. High winds are the main threat and the EURO is spitting out some 50mph gusts:

Cooler and drier winds will be blowing on Sunday as temps hit the 60s. Those winds will be cranking through the day.

After a calm Monday, the next system rolls in here to end March and kick start April:

That continues to look pretty ugly, but may not be as cool as what the models were showing in previous days.

I leave you with your tracking toys for the day:
