Happy Saturday, Folks! It was a cold night across WABBLES accompanied by some patchy frost. Many areas got down to at or below freezing making it the coldest morning in
We look to squeeze out one more nice day before unsettled weather moves in on Sunday. A high pressure that has been over us since Thursday is starting to slide to our east.
Southerly flow returns and will bump temperatures back into the 60s today with mostly sunny skies. Clouds will increase into the evening, but any shower chances will hold off until after sunset.
Clouds significantly increase as we head into Saturday night while temperatures drop down to around 47 degrees. A few showers are possible overnight.
Strong Storms Possible for Easter
It is unfortunate, but Easter is looking like a soggy day across the area. We are also watching the potential for strong storms during the late evening and after sunset hours on Sunday.
The Storm Prediction Center has highlighted our area for the threat of severe weather. A majority of WABBLES is under the enhanced risk where we could see strong to severe storms late Sunday.
The wind shear on Sunday will be very strong across the area. The one ingredient that is a question is instability. How much instability will determine how strong these storms will be as they move through. We won’t have a better idea of that until tomorrow. Storms don’t look to move in until after dark. Always remember to have a way to get warnings after you go to bed Sunday night. Have multiple ways to receive warnings and be sure phones and flashlights are charged.
Timing and Threats
The best window for these storms tomorrow night will be between 10 pm-2 am. All threats are on the table with hail, damaging winds, and isolated tornadoes.
While heavy rain isn’t a huge threat
Cooler Weather Ahead
After the system passes on Sunday, we clear out and will start the new week off rather nice. Temperatures look to stay well below average and a few mornings may feature more frost this week. Trends right now are pointing towards a pretty dry week with only a few shower chances.
That does it for today’s post! Remember to follow @wxornotBG on Twitter and like our page on Facebook to stay updated on the Sunday’s severe weather chances. Have a great Saturday and practice that social distancing!
