11/28 – Jeff’s “Severe Weather Ahead” Monday Afternoon Forecast
This afternoon will have plenty of sunshine and temperatures warming to around 70 degrees. Winds will be southerly this afternoon into tonight. The light southerly breeze overnight will contribute to another fog setup for our area tomorrow.
Tuesday will be an active day for the South. A frontal system will be racing to its northeast through the day tomorrow. Also, this weekend’s frontal system will have a piece of it coming into the picture. The moisture from the latter will overspread our area through the day. Showers and thunderstorms can be expected, especially in the afternoon.
Favorable parameters in the atmosphere will be in place for severe thunderstorms. As of now, the entirety of our area is under a Level 2 of 5 threat. However, that is subject to change. A threat of tornadoes is in play along with damaging straight-line wind gusts. As the cold front approaches, a line of thunderstorms will move through our area Wednesday morning.
Following the passage of the cold front, clearing will ensue late in the day Wednesday. Temperatures will briefly dip below seasonal Thursday. A return flow will set up into the weekend.
