Strong Storms Possible Late Today

Good Thursday, everyone. We have another cold front dropping into the region and this will increase the threat for showers and thunderstorms late today into Friday. Some of these storms may be on the strong or severe side as our August pattern stays very active.

Today is mainly dry until late in the afternoon or evening. That’s when a line of showers and storms approaches from the north and northwest. As mentioned, the atmosphere is capable of throwing a few severe storms our way and the SPC has parts of the region in the severe weather risk area…

Damaging winds and large hail are, as usual, the main severe weather players. In addition to the severe threat, these storms will have a lot of lightning and torrential rain with them. Local high water issues will be possible.

The threat for showers and storms will linger into Friday as the front sags farther south. We will need to be on guard for a complex of storms rolling eastward across the state. Keep that in mind.  Temps come back down and should wind up feeling great later Friday into Saturday!

Temps recover quickly later Sunday into Monday as humidity levels climb. This may set the stage for northwest to southeast moving storms during this time. That would be ahead of another cold front sweeping in here by the middle of the week…

After some early week sizzle, the numbers come right back down…

Here are your late Thursday storm trackers…

Have a great day and take care.
