04/09 Ryan’s “Second Stormy Start” Friday Night Forecast

For the second time this week a strong line of storms will be moving through overnight. Expect the worst with this system from 5 AM to 9 AM Saturday. That means this will be a quick-moving storm, but will still have time to cause problems.

The organization of this storm implies straight-line winds as the biggest risk, but there’s still a low chance of embedded tornadoes and moderate-to-large hail.

Don’t rule out localized flooding either. The line will be moving quickly, but a few areas could likely accumulate 4″+ in just a few hours time. By 10 AM though, things will begin to improve. The skies will begin to open just after lunchtime, and the dewpoint will fall rapidly. I don’t expect much cooling with this system, but it will at least be a bit drier for a few days. Please remain weather aware through the early morning and sunrise hours, then enjoy your beautiful weekend.
