forecast for weekend


Highlights – scattered showers and storms still in the forecast for Thursday – much welcomed dry period Friday and Saturday – another frontal system Sunday

Forecast: The frontal boundary which produced numerous rounds of severe weather and flooding over a large portion of the south, Midwest and east coast is now moving away. However the upper low behind this system will still produce some afternoon showers and rumbles of thunder with a threat for pea size hail in the afternoon. Afternoon heating will lead to an increasing temperature gradient with height which will promote the redevelopment of these clouds and scattered showers in the afternoon. After sunset these will quickly end. Highs will be in the mid to upper 60’s Thursday. For Friday and Saturday conditions will clear for a few days with highs in the 70’s and lows in the 50’s. Unforntauntrly by Sunday another strong frontal boundary which could also be another slow mover will move into the region. Rounds of heavy rainfall are very well possible from Sunday to beyond the forecast period. parameters suggest the potential for another squall line event as well Sunday night or Monday. Details will be refined as needed on the hvy rain and severe threat Sunday night. MWG
