Scattered Storms Start The Weekend

Good Friday to one and all. We have additional rounds of showers and thunderstorms targeting the region to jump start the weekend. This is a setup that will likely carry us through the weekend and into early next week. While nothing appears to be of “washout” material, we will need to be on guard for some high water trouble spots.

Scattered storms will be floating around today with a greater threat for storms showing up this evening into tonight. There may be corridor of storms and very heavy rains setting up somewhere across the southeast. If that happens, local flash flooding would be possible.

Here are your radars for the day…

That action becomes much more scattered on Saturday as temps come down several degrees from what’s out there today. The day actually looks pretty decent.

Another system impacts the region Sunday night into early next week, with scattered showers and storms increasing. Temps stay cooler than normal…

The numbers are going to try to reverse for a bit later this month, but the real warm up may take place to our north. Here’s the WeatherBell CFS 5 day average toward the end of August…

In true 2017 fashion, watch the reversal toward cool again…

 

I’m honestly not sold on September being a cool month, but the trend might be hard to stop.

Make it a good Friday and take care.
