4/5 – Rob Martin’s “One Last Hurdle” Tuesday Night Forecast

Outside of isolated showers, we’re looking good through the rest of Tuesday night and into early Wednesday morning. It’ll be a warm, humid night as temperatures remain about steady.

A strong cold front arrives Wednesday afternoon, and with warm temperatures of 80 or higher, enough lift could form to pop up some strong thunderstorms in the afternoon, mainly in Jackson and George counties, which are under a level 2 (a “slight risk” of severity). These storms are expected in the 1 – 4 PM time frame. The tornado threat would be more limited, but storms could contain damaging winds and hail. We are on the western fringe of that slight severe risk tomorrow, and it does indeed look like most of the storms will remain to our north and east.

After the front passes Wednesday evening, much cooler temps follow, dropping to the mid-50s overnight. Thursday highs will reach the lower 70s with low humidity. We get even cooler Thursday night with lows in the 40s area-wide. The cooler areas might stay below 70 for highs Friday.

Late Friday night/early Saturday morning will be particularly chilly for this time of year; most will drop to the 40-45° range (we average mid 50s this time of year). Some of the colder inland spot could even reach the upper 30s by daybreak Saturday. But, the afternoons will be splendid all the way through the weekend.
We’re back to warmer, more-humid conditions early next week, along with the next round of thunderstorms.
