11/25 – Brittany’s “Severe Potential Ahead” Friday Night Forecast
After a gloomy day, the dreary conditions will stick around throughout the rest of our night. We’ll see cloudy skies tonight with temperatures bottoming out around 60 degrees.
Tomorrow, we’ll be under a MARGINAL threat for potentially severe weather. The greatest threats will be strong winds, heavy rainfall, and isolated tornadic activity.
An upper level low currently situated in Texas will kick out northeast Saturday morning and track across Texas to Oklahoma and Arkansas. A cold front associated with the low will track east across Louisiana and Mississippi during the afternoon hours on Saturday. Initial lift from this feature will promote development of a wide swath of showers and thunderstorms. Excellent difluence aloft will then enhance intensity of these showers and storms as they pass across the CWA. Upwards of 1-2″ areawide can be expected and rain chances have been bumped up to basically 100%. Localized higher amounts than 2″ seem completely plausible. Those types of numbers and the fact that storms should be moving relatively quick don`t really support the need for a Flash Flood Watch, but will be continuing to monitor for the potential during later shifts.
After a gloomy/rainy Saturday, everyone will be rewarded with a spectacular day on Sunday. Skies will clear and temperatures will be mild with highs reaching about 70 degrees.
