Discussion

Upper level low pressure will close in on us today and the threat for showers and thunderstorms will increase. Winds will also increase and transport some low level moisture into the region and that combined with colder air moving in aloft will create instability needed to generate showers and thunderstorms. Given the cold air expected in the upper atmosphere later today and tonight, hail could become a problem with any given storm as freezing levels will be quite low. Gusty winds will continue to be quite noticeable on Saturday before calmer conditions develop on Sunday.
