Chance for severe storms this afternoon, a cold front will bring a line of storms through the region from NW to SE between 1-5PM. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has placed most of our region under slight chance of severe weather, the second image explains what this mean.
As always, the key to determining if this line becomes strong to severe or just passing showers will be instability. Currently there is some cloud cover over parts of the region, if those persist the threat diminishes, if the sun comes out vice versa. All the other ingredients are in place, approaching cold front and strong sheer, just need the fuel source.
As always, we will keep our eyes on the radar and update as needed, seeing this is the first day of school for many, and this line of storms will impact parts of the region around dismissal time, it’s important to keep an eye to the sky, or to us, or whichever you prefer.
Good luck in school today kids!
