Saturday 4/13 Forecast Discussion

After Thursday's storms, High Pressure has moved over the Southeast and made for a few really nice days across the Twin States. Unfortunately that will be changing tomorrow. Clouds will increase tonight from the West, and by tomorrow morning a warm front will be moving Northward from the Gulf. This front will be the focus for heavy showers and thunderstorms. Most models are pointing to this system moving up through Southern Mississippi, and then to the East through Alabama during the midday hours, and then Georgia tomorrow afternoon and night. We'll keep an eye on this, as there could be a few strong or severe storms with gusty winds and small hail. I think that the stronger storms will stay down near the coast though. High pressure will once again reside over us for Monday through Wednesday, but with some pulses of energy moving over us, there will be a chance for some thunderstorms to form during the afternoon hours. Yet another strong low pressure system will be moving across the country during the mid part of next week, and the Storm Prediction Center has already outlined risk areas to our West. Right now, it looks like this system will impact us Thursday afternoon and night. With very warm temperatures and dewpoints in the 60s and 70s, the atmosphere will be very unstable and primed for severe weather. Of course, this is still a ways out, so we'll continue to monitor the system as it makes its way towards us. After it gets out of here, we cool down back into the 70s for the weekend.
