A Hot and Stormy Tuesday
A stationary boundary to the north of us will linger for a few days. Impulses riding along that boundary along with ample moisture and moderate CAPE will work to trigger numerous thunderstorms Tuesday and Wednesday. Daytime heating could help turn those storms strong and even severe with damaging winds, frequent lightning, small hail and periods of heavy rainfall across both days. As of now, shear looks to lacking, so not expecting any tornado activity. Daytime highs will hover in the low to mid 90s through Wednesday with heat indices in the low 100s.
Another weak frontal boundary, born from an area of low pressure coming out of the west, is projected to sink through the area by Friday. This will also help kick up showers and thunderstorms Thursday into Friday.
Keep in mind, we are now into the summertime and daily weather conditions could change rapidly with the extreme heat and its destabilizing effects on the environment. Even if we aren’t calling for strong to severe storms in a forecast, we’ll need to stay weather aware as these storms could easily pop up.
