Thursday, April 4 Morning Forecast Discussion

By  | 

Happy Thursday! Another warm day is in store for us today with highs expected to climb into the mid-80s on our Thursday. We’ll see sunny skies this morning, with clouds slowly increasing throughout the day. We’ll still call it mostly sunny overall; however, we look to transition over to mostly cloudy skies as we head into the overnight hours. A cold front will move through late tonight/early tomorrow bringing a chance of isolated showers along with it.

The aforementioned cold front will stall out and then lift to the north as a warm front on Friday, keeping us under isolated shower chances throughout the day. There is a chance storms fire up Friday evening as the warm front lifts over our area and though no severe weather is expected with these storms, a few of them could contain small hail and gusty winds. Those showers and storms will exit before midnight Friday night.

Saturday will be a warm and humid day with isolated showers and storms possible. The storms throughout the day on Saturday will remain below severe limits, but a cold front is expected to approach our area late Saturday into early Sunday and that looks to bring a chance of strong to severe storms across our area. All modes of severe weather look possible at this time, with damaging winds along a squall line as the primary threat. There will also be a tornado threat along the squall line as well. The overnight timing of these storms is working in our favor, as that will likely prevent us from seeing a major severe weather outbreak. Still be sure to stay weather aware Saturday night/Sunday morning and keep up to date with the latest forecast as this is still a changing situation.

We’ll dry out by Sunday evening and also see a bit of a cool down through Tuesday morning. Morning lows Monday and Tuesday will likely drop into the 40s, while highs on Monday will only top out in the low-70s. We’ll see plenty of sunshine for both Monday and Tuesday. Attention will then turn to the Wednesday/Thursday time frame when another storm system may bring another round of strong to severe storms. Details on this severe weather possibility are hazy at this time.
