12/29 – Jeff Vorick’s “Heavy Rain Tomorrow” Thursday Night Forecast

Patchy fog will be possible for some us tonight with tons of moisture in the air. Partly to mostly cloudy skies can be expected overall. There is a storm system to our west that will be impacting our weather. There is a 20% chance of rainfall, particularly towards daybreak.

The frontal system will slowly make its way east. It has helped spark thunderstorms across much of Texas and Louisiana tonight. They will begin to push east overnight and get closer to our area. Shower and thunderstorm coverage will increase through the morning tomorrow. A line of thunderstorms will be impacting our area towards the middle of the day. There is a Marginal (Level 1 0f 5) risk of severity with that. Damaging straight-line winds in excess of 40 MPH are the main threat. Rain will accumulate in quick fashion tomorrow as well. There is a risk of flooding through the day.

Widespread shower and thunderstorm activity will diminish by the end of the day tomorrow. There will still be rain chances up until the cold front passes through our area early Saturday morning. Clearing will occur Saturday afternoon and New Year’s Eve night should be pleasant. There won’t be a significant cool-down with the front, just a slightly drier airmass behind it.

New Year’s Day will be a lovely, warm day with partly cloudy skies. Our attention will turn to another system as we get the first week of the year underway. There is the possibility of severe thunderstorm activity across the South at some point during the first half of the week.
