More Warmth and Thunderstorms

More Warmth and Thunderstorms

<B>(Tuesday Midday May 21, 2013)</B> A summer-like pattern will continue for the next few days. This means rather warm and humid air in addition to the risk for showers and thunderstorms, some of which may have hail and strong wind gusts.
Our taste of summer continues this afternoon.  Showers and thunderstorms that went through the region last night and early this morning will leave us with partial sun into the afternoon pushing temperatures well into the 80s.  This will help fuel the atmosphere for more showers and thunderstorms, especially this afternoon.  Meanwhile, a subtle boundary will move north through the region, likely serving as a focal point for the initiation of showers and thunderstorms.  Also, this subtle boundary may help to energize a few thunderstorms, so we still will have to watch for some of the storms to contain  strong wind and hail.

The threat for showers and thunderstorms will continue tonight and into tomorrow as high temperatures reach the low to mid 80s once again.  Eventually a cold front will arrive Thursday, likely further increasing our threat for more showers and thunderstorms. 

Eventually the cold front will move off to our east by Friday, however, showers may linger as a second push of colder attempts to move through the region.  Ultimately, sharply cooler air will usher for the start of the holiday weekend.  While the air will be cool, it will also be dry.  That’ll mean a wealth of sunshine for the weekend as well.
