Storms increase this weekend

Good Friday to one and all. As we roll into the weekend, rounds of showers and thunderstorms will be on the increase. This action is ahead of a cold front dropping in here on Sunday. That brings drier and cooler weather into the start of next week.

Let’s kick things off with what’s shaking out there today. Highs are a little cooler and around 80 degrees for many. The air feels better as a weak front drops just to our south. There’s also the chance for an isolated shower or storm going up across the south and east.

Here are your radars in case a few go up:

Once the cold front moves in over the weekend, it combines with a healthy moisture plume coming northward ahead of it. The end result is for showers and storms to become widespread from late Saturday into Sunday:

Hefty totals may show up across the east and southeast and this may lead to local high water issues:

Better air follows this up early in the week as the front presses just to our south. The pipeline of moisture from the Gulf looks delayed but not denied as it tries to set up for the middle and end of next week. This is where we may actually see a tropical system develop in the coming days. The tropics are loaded with potential:

 

The EURO takes whatever becomes of this system inland and transports that moisture our way during the second half of next week and teams it up with a fall cold front:

The EURO has a definite chill, but as we found out with the last chilly loo, the tropics can change the reality:

Enjoy your Friday and take care.
