Thursday, May 30 Forecast Discussion

Pop-up showers and storms will begin to develop over the next couple of hours, and coverage still looks to be better than yesterday as there is a bit more support from the jet stream and humidity is slightly higher than yesterday. These storms could be on the strong side with gusty winds and small hail, but no severe storms (winds in excess of 58mph, 1" diameter or larger hail) are expected.

The pop-up chance decreases as we work into the weekend but rain showers and some storms look to return Sunday with our next cold front. We could see a squall line organize along the front, however, no significant upper level support will accompany the front, so only a storm or two looks capable of becoming severe at this point.

Behind the front, much cooler air looks to arrive on Monday with highs dropping into the low to mid 80s with low humidity. Our reprieve though is short lived as we quickly look to climb to the lower 90s by Wednesday. As we enter June, it appears Mother Nature will be prepared to start providing 90 degree weather.
