Watching The Storm Threat For FridayApril 24th, 2014 at 5:11 pm by Jeff Edmondson WAVY under Weather
Scattered showers and thunderstorms are looking more and more likely tomorrow evening. The timing of the storms is still the main thing in question.
The threats from these storms look to be heavy rain and damaging wind gusts. The threats for hail, flooding, and tornadoes remains low at this point. Tomorrow, our temperatures are going to climb in to the 70s in the afternoon which will add a little fuel to the atmosphere. If we get a good amount of sunshine then we should have decent levels of instability by the late afternoon.
As a cold front moves in to our area, the storm threat will increase in the afternoon. Most of the models don’t have any of the significant rain and storms in our area until after 5-6pm. I believe the chances for storms will be the highest between 7pm and 10pm at this point. Chief Meteorologist Don Slater will be tracking the latest models tonight and of course Jeremy Wheeler will be in tomorrow morning with the forecast and a new blog.
Enjoy the mild evening, lows should be near 49 tonight.
