Tracking The Severe Storms Potential

Good Thursday, folks. We have a busy weather day taking shape as a strong cold front works in from the west. This boundary will touch off showers and thunderstorms, with the potential for severe storms to fire up. This same front is going to slow down right on top of us and that spells bad news for Mother’s Day Weekend.

Damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes can’t be ruled out this afternoon and evening as storms develop. The greatest risk is across central and western parts of the state. Here’s the current Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

Heavy rains may also cause a few local high water issues to develop. Speaking of heavy rain, that looks to be the case for the weekend ahead.

This same front puts the brakes on across the state, leading to a few more showers early Friday. Low pressure develops along the front and rolls in here later Saturday into Sunday. Heavy rains appear to be a good bet, possibly leading to some flooding issues.

The European Model continues to show a lot of rain from today through Sunday…

Cool temps will accompany the rain and continue into next week. The European Model has a very cool Monday…

It even shows the possibility of upper 30s by Tuesday morning…

Ugh.

Here are your severe weather tracking tools for the day…
