A Few Storms This Weekend

Good Friday, everyone. We have a warm weekend taking shape across the state, but rounds of showers and storms look to kick in. This is ahead of a pattern that’s not looking as good for early next week as a cut off storm system spins over the region.

Temps today are back into the upper 70s to low 80s on a strong southwest wind. That wind is bringing in increase in humidity and instability, leading to a few storms. The storm risk will increase this afternoon and evening as a line drops in from the north and northwest. There’s even the low-end risk for severe storms. Here’s the Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

The threat for storms will be with us through the weekend as temps reach anywhere from the upper 70s to middle 80s. Any storm that’s out there this weekend could be strong or locally severe.

A big upper level system then drops in here by Monday and closes off right on top of us. This looks to bring unsettled weather with rounds of showers and storms into the first half of next week…

Once that system moves away, we can get back to our surge of early summer temps…

The developing tropical system off the southeastern coastline will have an impact on how long that system lingers. Here’s the latest from the National Hurricane Center…

I will have updates as needed. Until then,  I have you all set to do some storm tracking…
