4/14 – Jeff Vorick’s “Rain/Thunderstorms Tomorrow” Friday Evening Forecast

Today has been a near-perfect spring day across the coast. Other than passing clouds, dry conditions have provided for a comfortable feel. Things begin to change tonight as clouds will increase towards daybreak. A warm front will move through South Mississippi early in the day tomorrow.

Energy along the warm front, in the warm sector of a system will provide for the opportunity for thunderstorms to develop. They will move east along the central Gulf Coast tomorrow afternoon into the evening. There is the potential for heavy rainfall with that along with isolated strong winds.

There is the potential for a couple of rounds of rain overnight ahead of a cold front. The final round, a squall line associated with the cold front, will provide for a low-end threat of severe thunderstorms before daybreak Sunday. The activity will clear the area Sunday morning and skies will gradually clear throughout the day.

High pressure builds in across the Eastern U.S. next week leading to overall quiet conditions. There are signals for potential rain chances mid-week, but other than that, the next signal for a storm system won’t be in the picture until next weekend.
