12/29 – Jeff’s “Thunderstorms Ahead” Thursday Evening Forecast
Today was a very warm, but quiet day across our area. A warm and humid airmass is in our area which will help fuel tomorrow’s weather-maker. Tonight will feature mostly cloudy skies and temperatures on the mild side. Patchy fog could develop overnight. There is a 20% chance of rain before daybreak.
Showers and thunderstorms will increase in coverage through the morning. Guidance is suggesting a line of thunderstorms will be moving through the around midday into the afternoon. These thunderstorms could contain strong straight-line winds. However, the main concern is rainfall leading to flash flooding. Rain chances will diminish the later we get into the evening tomorrow.
There is a 30% chance of showers and thunderstorms with the cold front passing through Saturday morning. Clearing will occur through the day and New Year’s Eve activities will go off without a hitch. The cold front will not provide a cooldown but only a slightly drier airmass.
Sunday morning will be cooler with low temperatures in the 50s. Return flow sets up again Sunday ahead of another weather-maker that will be around next week.
