Showers and Thunderstorms Remain in the Forecast for Friday
There remains a MARGINAL (1 out of 5) chance for isolated strong storms tonight especially east and southeast of Muscogee County, but that threat goes away after midnight. While there will be ample moisture and moderate CAPE, there will be little shear to help turn any storm severe, but we’ll keep watching in case there is development. Patchy fog will be a concern during the early morning hours.
Warm, moisture rich Gulf air will continue to stream into the area out ahead of a weak cold front that will trigger widely scattered showers and thunderstorms on Friday. Temperatures will remain quite warm which will help keep moderate instability in place. Because of this, a few strong storms will be possible, but lack of shear should prevent storms from turning severe.
That weak front, trailed by a secondary front, will exit our area Saturday with strong high pressure settling in behind it introducing dry and calm conditions through at least the middle part of next week.
Daily highs will hit the mid to upper 80s through early next week with overnight lows mainly in the mid to upper 60s.
