11/25 – The Chief’s “Severe Threat Potential” Friday Afternoon Forecast
Cloudy skies will continue this afternoon with breezy conditions from the North at 10-20 mph. Tomorrow, a stronger system will move across the Southern Plains, finally pushing the cold front through the area. Once again, showers and thunderstorms will move into the area ahead of the front, some of which could produce periods of heavy rainfall. In addition, the storms tomorrow will have slightly better instability to work with than we saw yesterday, which could lead to a slightly higher threat. Overall, the main threat is expected to be the heavy rainfall along with the chance that some of the stronger storms could spin up a brief tornado or produce damaging winds.
Once the aforementioned system pulls away to the north and east, southerly flow will return to the area with surface high pressure in place. This is likely to keep us at or above normal temperature wise for the remainder of the weekend and into the start of the new work week. The next system and cold front is expected to approach the area on Wednesday with showers and storms returning.
