THURSDAY (7/14) MORNING WEATHER BRIEFING

GOOD THURSDAY MORNING….

Last night’s storms packed quite a punch and I’ll admit were a little stronger than I anticipated when I looked at things yesterday morning. Scattered wind damage reports and plenty of power outages around the region last night.

On to today. A quiet morning and we are seeing increasing sunshine. It is warm and very humid again with dewpoints in the upper 60s to near 70.

That cold front over the Midwest is heading our way and as it approaches we can expect spotty thunderstorms to develop late this afternoon. The air mass is plenty warm and humid, good fuel for the storms. The upper-level “dynamics” are not overly impressive once again but as we saw last night it does not take much for storms to get strong/severe in this environment.

The Storm Prediction Center has us on the “low” or “marginal” risk for severe weather, meaning it is not likely but can’t be ruled out either.

I think the threat window is roughly 4-8pm. Have your StormTracker 21 app handy.

FRIDAY/WEEKEND

Dewpoints will lower in the wake of the cold front for Friday and the weekend. A seconadry cold front will bring a small (10-20%) chance of an afternoon shower/thundershower Friday. The weekend looks excellent!

NEXT WEEK

Not too hot for the first half of the week but the high heat still looks like it will visit late in the week and into the weekend. 90-95 for a couple of days will be a good possibility. Models:
