Tranquil Start Thursday; Terrible End For Some

Severe Weather Threat

Some harmless high clouds will occupy the nighttime sky.  Meanwhile, milder weather continues to arrive in advance of our next cold front.

This cold front will press east of the Mississippi River Thursday, arriving across the Chattahoochee River late Thursday night/Friday morning.   While dry, warm weather will linger one more day, there will be an uptick in the humidity department Thursday.

A squall line of intense thunderstorms will arrive from west to east near or after midnight Thursday night and early Friday morning.  Damaging wind gusts will likely accompany a few of the storms with a tornado also being possible.   Unfortunately, the cover of darkness, and the possibility of any tornado being rain-wrapped will not allow us to see them coming.

The risk of severe weather will exit to the east Friday morning, although showers will linger with a cold, gusty wind Friday midday and afternoon.

Saturday will remain windy and cold to start off the Easter weekend, and there may be a stray afternoon sprinkle.

Easter morning will also be chilly, although the sun will allow for a quick turnaround during the afternoon.   Stay safe!
