4/27 – Rob’s Thursday “Midday News” Afternoon Forecast
The cold front from last night is now to the east with clearing skies along the Southern 6. The front has stalled and will begin to retreat back to the north as a warm front tonight bringing the much higher humidity back to the area for another round of humid conditions through Sunday.
Southerly gradient winds ahead of the front will rise to around 20 mph by Saturday morning and further rise to around 25-30 mph by Sunday morning. Gusts for both days could be as high as 35 mph for most areas but may be higher on the lee side of water bodies and marsh areas. This may prompt the issuance of wind advisories for the entire area Saturday and/or Sunday. Southerly winds ahead of the next front will cause further piling of water along the coast which could result in coastal flooding of at least 2 feet or more above normal levels starting Saturday and reaching a peak by Sunday.
Most of the inclement weather associated with this system should begin to enter the area around sunrise Sunday and exit the area before sunrise Monday. Even this far out, there looks to be some strong evidence of severe thunderstorms during this time frame. And this could be widespread with all modes of severe thunderstorms possible.
