Thursday afternoon is more about the clouds and what's coming than what is already happening. We will have some scattered showers for the afternoon, mainly little cells that bring little amounts of rain. These are developing in the very humid and unstable air WAY out ahead of the cold front and the main line of showers and storms slowly working from the west to the east. This afternoon will remain humid and warm and breezy - temps into the 80s, even with the cloud cover.
The line of storms will produce come locally heavy rains and some potentially dangerous thunderstorms to our west this afternoon and this evening. As slowly as the line is moving, our best chances for the biggest weather still look to be closer to morning Friday. Overnight temps will stay in the 60s.
Latest runs of the FUTUREcast models have most of the showers getting to our area after 2am and realistically, getting thru our area during the morning commute. As we get more information on the timing and intensity, we will update. Connect with us on Facebook and Twitter for even more information.
The timing of the line of showers is NOT favorable to widespread severe weather. However, there likely will be some instances of strong winds and more dangerous weather during Thursday afternoon/evening to our west. And of course, we will monitor all of this for you.
Friday should see clearing later in the afternoon and Saturday looks like a pretty nice day.
