A Few Severe Storms Possible Today

Good Thursday, everyone. We have a cold front dropping into the state today, bringing the risk of a few strong to severe thunderstorms. Behind this, much cooler air pushes in to start the weekend, but a summer surge will quickly follow.

Here’s a breakdown of the pattern:

  • The day starts with some showers and storms working in from the west and northwest. This action is likely to be on the decrease.
  • Another round of storms will then fire up later today into the evening. Some scattered strong to severe storms are possible, but odds do not favor a significant event.
  • Damaging winds and large hail are the primary players.
  • Ahead of the storms, temps will spike back into the 80-85 degree range for many.
  • Gusty showers and some thunder will be around into Friday, with the greatest chance in the south and east.
  • Much cooler winds will blow in and we may be in the 50s by late afternoon.
  • Some 1″ rains are possible in a few spots through Friday.
  • The weekend weather looks much better with sunshine and temps approaching 80 by Mother’s Day.
  • Summer temps surge in next week, with some areas making a run at 90. This setup could lead to a big severe weather setup late in the week.

I have you all set to track today’s severe weather potential…
