4/27 – The Chief’s “Frontal Passage” Thursday Afternoon Forecast

As an area of low pressure continues to drag a cold front through the region, isolated t-storms will continue this afternoon but begin to diminish late afternoon. The energy will depart to the NE with showers/t-storms moving east late afternoon and this evening

Slightly more uncertainty for afternoon time frame as some models suggest a secondary swath of rain moving in from the west. Other parameters don`t show this. I have kept precip chances at 20-40 this afternoon to account for that potential.

After an uneventful Friday with continued above normal temps, another upper low will drop out of the Rockies and swing across the lower Mississippi River Valley this upcoming weekend. Run to run model consistency remains low during this period, thus uncertainty is high. Models continue to flip/flop on whether the local area sees high coverage or is dry-slotted. General consensus is that we’ll see a modest amount of coverage.
