Strong To Severe Storms Possible

Good Tuesday, everyone. A cold front is working across the state today, bringing the potential for strong to severe thunderstorms. There is also a quick shot of sizzle right ahead of this front, but the numbers come back to normal or a touch below by Wednesday.

Our day begins with a complex of strong to severe storms dropping in from the northwest. This is bringing a damaging wind threat for many.. Some sunshine along and ahead of our front will combine with a big time surge of humidity to make it feel like a sauna for a few hours. Heat index values may hit 100 in a few spots, but only if the sun comes out.

By the afternoon hours, thunderstorms should begin to crank once again, but the front is already on top of us as this happens. That means the greatest threat for storms is across the southern and eastern halves of the Commonwealth. That’s where today’s severe storms risk is the greatest…

Scattered showers and storms will be around Wednesday as our temps come down. This is actually a nice brand of air settling in through Thursday as the numbers are back to below normal on average. That’s something we’ve seen more times than not over the past week. Check out the 5 day temperature anomalies from last Wednesday through this past Sunday…

Temps should increase this weekend and early next week, but we will need to be mindful of the potential for a few storms to drop in here from the northwest.
