Monday, February 18 Forecast Discussion

A cloudy and breezy day was the story to start the week as winds picked up ahead of a cold front advancing from our northwest. Numerous showers and storms have already developed back off to our west, and these showers will arrive after sunset. Some storms will also be possible overnight with a couple turning strong to severe with gusty winds and some hail.

This front will clear out by early tomorrow morning, and so just about all of the daylight hours on Tuesday will be dry. Clouds will clear out through late morning and early afternoon and a dry but cool Wednesday will follow.

Thursday is where things get interesting. Our next storm system will be arriving from our west, looks like late in the day, and could bring some strong storms with it. In terms of severe weather, everything is in place except for instability (rising air). If we lack the instability, then our severe threat will not materialize. However, if we get enough warm and humid air to return prior to the front, that means we could see a severe weather event. Right now, it is simply too early to say what will happen, so you will want to stay with us for the latest.

The front will stall over us on Friday and Saturday, keeping rain in the forecast until about Sunday.
