Storms Moving in Tonight

Strong to severe weather is quite possible

Clouds increasing this afternoon, but staying dry ahead of a cold front that will bring a chance for strong to severe storms late tonight/early tomorrow morning. With sufficient CAPE (potential energy) and strong wind shear, damaging winds will be the main concern although the atmosphere could be ripe enough to spawn a few tornadoes. Periods of heavy rainfall and isolated large hail will also be possible. One positive thing we have going for us is the storms should pass through before daytime heating can take effect and help increase severe development. As the storm front moves east, the thunderstorm threat looks to lessen with mainly showers in the afternoon.

A cooler air mass moves in behind the system, so much cooler highs and lows are expected Friday and Saturday before rebounding Sunday. All in all, Easter weekend weather will be wonderful. High pressure also takes over and we stay dry through late next week.

TODAY- Increasing cloudiness with highs in the low 80s. Windy with gusts up to 20 mph.

TONIGHT- Showers and thunderstorms late with some storms becoming strong to severe. Lows in the low 60s. Windy with gusts up to 25 mph.

FRIDAY- Showers and thunderstorms early then showers in the afternoon. Highs in the low to mid 60s. Windy with gusts up to 20 mph.
