Again? Potentially Significant Severe Weather Expected Areawide On Wednesday
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW TO PREPARE FOR WEDNESDAY'S STORMS
While many of us will spend the day today cleaning up from Monday’s damaging thunderstorms, we’ll all need to prepare for another round of severe weather as a dynamic weather system moves into the area Wednesday. Here’s what you need to know…
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Yesterday’s storm system has settled along the Gulf Coast and will return early Wednesday morning as a warm front. This front will surge northward through the area during the morning hours and showers and storms are expected to break out along this front. Storms along warm fronts tend to produce a lot of lightning, heavy rain, and potentially some large hail. All of these modes of severe weather are possible as this front moves northeast and isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out as well. We may get a brief break during the day tomorrow before the cold front pushes through the area potentially bringing another round of strong to severe storms. Damaging winds, large hail, and the potential for tornadoes will exist with this front as well. Bottom-line, you’ll need to be prepared from early morning Wednesday through late afternoon as we may have multiple storms throughout the day.
Wednesday morning through late afternoon. Several rounds of severe weather are possible. By tomorrow evening, our entire area will be in the clear in terms of severe weather.
MODES OF SEVERE WEATHER:
All modes are possible with this system to include damaging winds, large hail, heavy rainfall, and tornadoes. A few tornadoes may be strong.
We really cool down behind this system. We’ll see windy conditions on Thursday and Friday with a decent cloud deck just to our north. Temps will struggle to reach the middle 60’s with overnight lows returning to the 40’s. We may even see a few upper 30’s and patchy frost waking up Friday and Saturday mornings.
