a weak front arrives thursday to a large extent the last few days have been very similar: hot, humid, afternoon storms. there isn't much of a deviation in this pattern on thursday, but a relatively weak front could organize a few more of those storms by mid afternoon. if that were to happen, a couple more could be in the strong category. peak impacts will continue to be gusty winds, lightning, and heavy rainfall. high temperatures on thursday will be in the middle 90s for some. there remains some uncertainty as to just how much cool air will be associated with this front, but i at least see some hope that temperatures go down a little bit for friday and the weekend. not every projection shows this but it least a couple limit high temperatures during that time frame to the upper 80s, so here's hoping. rain coverage on friday will be 30 to 40% with the heaviest storms near the front but should still be lingering in the area. i think rain chances by saturday and sunday diminish a little more to around 30% coverage and really aren't worthy of canceling any plans for because of the erratio nature of their development. next week, we do see a pattern shift that will bring northwest flow back to the region. for a day or two at the first part of the week this could lead to some complexes the thunderstorms moving in, but the models aren't sold by any means on that solution. a weak front arrives thursday to a large extent the last few days have been very similar: hot, humid, afternoon storms. there isn't much of a deviation in this pattern on thursday, but a relatively weak front could organize a few more of those storms by mid afternoon. if that were to happen, a couple more could be in the strong category. peak impacts will continue to be gusty winds, lightning, and heavy rainfall. high temperatures on thursday will be in the middle 90s for some. there remains some uncertainty as to just how much cool air will be associated with this front, but i at least see some hope that temperatures go down a little bit for friday and the weekend. not every projection shows this but it least a couple limit high temperatures during that time frame to the upper 80s, so here's hoping. rain coverage on friday will be 30 to 40% with the heaviest storms near the front but should still be lingering in the area. i think rain chances by saturday and sunday diminish a little more to around 30% coverage and really aren't worthy of canceling any plans for because of the erratio nature of their development. next week, we do see a pattern shift that will bring northwest flow back to the region. for a day or two at the first part of the week this could lead to some complexes the thunderstorms moving in, but the models aren't sold by any means on that a weak front arrives thursday to a large extent the last few days have been very similar: hot, humid, afternoon storms. there isn't much of a deviation in this pattern on thursday, but a relatively weak front could organize a few more of those storms by mid afternoon. if that were to happen, a couple more could be in the strong category. peak impacts will continue to be gusty winds, lightning, and heavy rainfall. high temperatures on thursday will be in the middle 90s for some. there remains some uncertainty as to just how much cool air will be associated with this front, but i at least see some hope that temperatures go down a little bit for friday and the weekend. not every projection shows this but it least a couple limit high temperatures during that time frame to the upper 80s, so here's hoping. rain coverage on friday will be 30 to 40% with the heaviest storms near the front but should still be lingering in the area. i think rain chances by saturday and sunday diminish a little more to around 30% coverage and really aren't worthy of canceling any plans for because of the erratio nature of their development. next week, we do see a pattern shift that will
