Tracking Our Cold Front

Good Friday, everyone. We have a potent cold front sweeping across the state, bringing another line of showers and storms across the east. A few of these could still be strong. The air coming in behind this for the weekend looks much better, but there is an increasing risk for showers late Sunday into Monday.

The line of storms along our evening front may have high winds and hail across the eastern half of the state. Temps ahead of this are in the 70s, but come crashing down through tonight.

Readings by Saturday morning can reach the freezing mark or below. The rest of the day looks good with a mix of sun and clouds and temps ranging from the upper 40s to middle 50s.

Sunday starts cold and ends with clouds increasing ahead of another wet weather maker. Showers work in later in the day and take us through Monday…

As that exits, a stronger system looks to bring heavy rain and a few strong storms in here for late Tuesday and Wednesday…

Temps behind this will warm deep into the 70s for the second half of the week. More storms will likely fire as well.

Here are your tracking toys for the remainder of the day…

A Strong Cold Front Moves Through

Good Friday, everyone. Our day is beginning with a round of strong to severe storms working across the state as we get ready for a powerful cold front to swing through. This will usher in chillier, but better weather for much of the weekend. Once into next week, we look to go back into a warm and rather stormy setup.

Let’s begin with today and move it along. A line of potentially strong to severe storms is working across the state from west to east early today. This will weaken the farther east it gets. We should get a break in the action with temps hitting the 70s ahead of our cold front. As that front slides in, additional showers and storms develop across the eastern half of the state. Some of these may also be strong.

Here’s today’s Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

In addition to the severe threat, watch for too much rain that can cause local flash flooding issues.

Much colder air then moves in behind the front with readings at or below freezing for some by Saturday morning. The rest of Saturday looks pretty good with some sun and temps ranging from the upper 40s to middle 50s.

I do have some changes for Sunday. A developing storm system will throw clouds in here with the chance for some rain by evening. This looks like a shower maker through early Monday…

Temps rebound VERY quickly behind this, but additional rounds of strong storms are possible as the week wears on. Temps may hit the 70s next week.

That’s all part of a warmer than normal setup that continues to show up. Look at the 10 day temp anomalies from the Euro Ensembles…

That goes into the first few days of April.

I will have another update later today. Until then, let’s do some Friday tracking…
