Line Of Strong/Severe Storms Tonight.
TODAY: Mostly dry through the day, with highs in the low 80s. A cold front pushing in from the northwest will trigger a line of thunderstorms. With decent instability (around 1,000-1,500 J/Kg) and a strengthening low level jet, we anticipate bowing line segments capable of strong straight line winds, and with the amount of instability in place as well as fairly steep mid-level lapse rates, severe hail will also be possible. The tornado threat is a bit limited due to unfavorable shear vectors as well as the aforementioned linear storm mode , but enough low level shear will exist to support an isolated tornado or two. This line of storms will exit the area by midnight, and lows drop into the 40s overnight.
WED/THU: Calmer weather mid week. Highs in the 60s under sunny skies, with lows in the low to mid 30s Wednesday night and 40s Thursday night. Some patchy frost isn’t out of the question Thursday morning.
FRI/SAT: Another cold front pushes through, bringing more rain, but this front won’t have the same ingredients to work with as today’s will, and thus no severe weather is in the forecast. Highs in the 60s Friday, and upper 50s Saturday. Lows in the upper 30s and low 40s.
SUN/MON: Back into the 70s to start next week. Isolated showers will be possible Sunday, with the potential for more scattered showers and storms Monday.
