Thunderstorm Uptick Thursday
Clusters of thunderstorms developing in advance of a cold front across the Midwest and Plains will likely survive on their way southeast overnight. The result will be a thunderstorm for some toward daybreak Thursday. The intensity of those storms will greatly affect the late-day cluster of storms as well. The greater the intensity of the morning round of thunderstorms will aid in slow destablization of the atmosphere for the late day thunderstorms. However, the weaker the morning round of wet weather, the faster storms can intensity later in the day, and perhaps be accompanied by damaging winds and hail. Now, there will be several hours respite in between the two risks of thunderstorms, but definitely keep an eye to the sky.
A high pressure heat pump will build across the Deep South Friday into early next week with highs in the mid-90s and the heat index in excess of 100! Although a stray afternoon thunderstorm cannot be ruled out Friday, most of the time will be rain-free. Hit/miss storms will redevelop Saturday afternoon before hot, dry weather resumes Sunday. Stay cool, and stay safe.
