Warm, Cold, Fog And Severe Storms
Winter For A Few Days Next Week
Warm, humid air that originated over the Gulf of Mexico continues to pile on top of us for the next few days. While late-night/early morning fog will be a concern, there will also be an occasional shower and thunderstorm.
If you have outdoor plans this weekend, Saturday looks to be the better of the two days. There can be a pop-up thunderstorm Saturday, but the risk of severe storms returns for the second half of Sunday into Sunday night. An Arctic cold front arriving Sunday night will be the triggering mechanism for those severe storms. Damaging wind gusts, heavy rain, and perhaps an isolated tornado is possible. Stay aware of the changing weather this weekend with WLTZ.
Cold, gusty winds will set the stage Monday in the wake of this cold front, allowing a return of Winter weather. A brief sprinkle is possible Fat Tuesday afternoon; otherwise clouds will share the sky with sunshine. A chilly breeze will likely linger that day as well. The coldest part of this cold air will linger through midweek before a return to milder weather takes place.
