Tracking Possible Severe Storms Late Tonight Through Thursday Morning
We continue to track the possibility of severe weather as a strong cold front from out of the west is interacting with a steady stream of moisture flowing up from the Gulf. This will continue to trigger showers and isolated thunderstorms for our area through Thursday night/Friday morning.
The timing of the severe weather remains a bit tricky, but going with late tonight through late Thursday morning. Damaging winds up to 60 mph and heavy rainfall with flash flooding are the main concerns. A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect at the moment. A brief tornado or two is also possible and cannot rule out quarter size hail. The front passes through Thursday allowing drier and cooler air to setup across the area Friday.
Another weak disturbance will try to bring isolated showers on Saturday, but Sunday looks to stay dry and pleasant. We’ll slide into more a zonal flow that will help usher in out next system early next week and puts rain chances back into the forecast.
Daytime highs will stay around 10 degrees average on Thursday before the colder air brings highs down into the upper 40s to low 50s on Friday. We’ll wake up on Saturday morning in the mid to upper 30s.
