Good Thursday to one and all. It’s another super muggy and stormy day across our part of the world. Rounds of thunderstorms continue to develop well ahead of a cold front that slides in here on Friday. Once we get that front through here, the weather turns AMAZING for the close of May and beginning of June.
Let’s start with today and fast-forward. The air is still very tropical feeling, but the temps are down some. Still, rounds of showers and storms blow up and could be on the strong side. The Storm Prediction Center has parts of the state in a low-end risk for severe storms:
High winds and hail are the main threats to watch for. In addition to the local severe threat, flash flooding is once again a concern. Storms could put down a quick inch or two of rain in a short amount of time.
Storms will continue through Friday as we wait on a cold front to arrive. That potent cold front will bring absolutely amazing weather in here to end May and begin June. Humidity levels crash on Saturday as a dry wind kicks in. Highs are in the 70s with a mix of sun and clouds. Some areas reach the 40s by Sunday morning and may not get to 70 for a high on the final day of May:
Lows for the first morning of June on Monday:
Highs for the start of Meteorological Summer are very cool:
Temps do rebound into the 80s by the middle of next week, but the EURO is bringing another front in here before the week is over:
We will also need to watch the Gulf of Mexico for potential tropical development late next week through the following week. Following Bertha yesterday, that could be our third named storm of the super young season.
