Happy Thursday everyone!
That's the sound of all of us going up the roller coaster starting rise.
As we talked about yesterday, today is the warm and breezy prelude. Thanks to Wednesday's rains this one isn't going to be as bad for brush fire concerns, but highs will reach the mid/upper 80s with a late-spring humid feel. A few showers will crop up, but most of those will be in the southern mountains and the northern counties with drier skies in between.
Take a look at what Friday's got going on:
|NAM - Wind-field - Friday Midday||NAM - Precipitation - Friday Midday||NAM - Temperature - Friday Midday|
Now that's what I call a frontal passage. At least the good news is that the pain will be concentrated across a few hours (though the lasting effects of the seasonably cooler air will take us right through the weekend). A line of thunderstorms will be along that temperature contrast. Have a look at that-- mid 70s and mid 40s in such close proximity. What a difference!
We'll be tracking the prospects of severe weather within this system, but at this point the worst of it will be blowing itself out in the central Ohio Valley. One thing to always remember though-- you can't get from the 80s to the 50s without at least something going on.
