Strong to Severe Storms Possible on Wednesday
As ample moisture spreads across the area, showers remain in the forecast tonight and perhaps a rumble of thunder or two. Expect isolated showers on Wednesday with a marginal risk for a few strong to severe thunderstorms in the afternoon and early evening. The main concern will be gusty winds between 40-60 mph and quarter size hail. The greater threat will be well to the north-northwest of us.
A deepening low along the Great Lakes will help sling a cold front through the Southeast on Thursday. This could introduce some drier air, so forecasting only spotty showers Thursday and Friday. The front will definitely cool things down to near seasonal Friday and across the weekend.
I’m keeping an eye on Sunday as a chance for strong storms has been introduced that could make things kind of rocky on Easter. We’ll need to stay weather aware as that day draws near.
Afternoon highs will hover between 6-10 degrees above normal through Thursday with overnight lows lingering around 10-15 degrees above. Cooler air will bring us closer to seasonal temperatures Friday through the weekend.
