Discussion

Severe weather is a threat again around here for late today and early tonight as a cool front approaches the area from the northwest. Any storm late today/early tonight can contain damaging wind gusts and hail and the rainfall with this frontal passage can produce flash flooding in some spots. Temperatures should soar today to summer-like levels near 90 degrees following the passage of a warm frontal system and there will be higher humidity values as well. This front will stall just to our south tomorrow and remain in close proximity for the next several days resulting in additional rounds of showers and thunderstorms going into the early part of next week. In addition to the instability caused by the nearby frontal boundary zone, tropical moisture from the Southeast US will become intertwined in the overall weather pattern enhancing our chances for excessive rainfall amounts between now and early next week.
