Unsettled weekend on tap...

>> Friday, May 17, 2013

A couple of weather features will combine to give us some unsettled weather over the next few days. Number 1 is a cold front that is nearing. That front will wind up stalling out across the region as the weekend unfolds.

Number 2 is an upper level disturbance that will be located in a favorable position through the weekend to enhance shower and storm chances.

Today, look for some scattered PM storms, especially near roughly I-40. The coverage of showers and storms will then increase tomorrow.

So, for the Sprint All-Star race tomorrow evening, I can't guarantee there won't be a weather delay somewhere in there, but the event shouldn't be a washout.

Sunday is looking more and more wet as more model data comes in. I expect a good coverage of rain and storms as Sunday unfolds, and some modeling is really beginning to crank the rain totals.

Drier and warmer weather returns for Tuesday and Wednesday.

I take a detailed look at all of this, plus take a peek at the potential for some cooler air around the Memorial Day weekend, in today's video:


Another warm one... unsettled this weekend...

Some nasty storms in Texas yesterday evening. I grabbed a couple of radar image of a violent tornado between Cleburne and Rio VIsta, TX. This one had an excellent debris signature on the dual-pol radar. See the second image

Highs today will again surge up into the mid and upper 80s, and once again, a few spots could clip 90.

A front will sag into the region beginning tomorrow and bring with it the chance of some showers and storms, especially in the afternoon. Tomorrow's rain chances are better the farther north you go.

Over the weekend, the front will stall out across the region. The result will likely be a good coverage of showers and storms during the afternoon and evening. Not a washout, but some showers and storms at times.

Drier and warmer weather will build back in here by mid-week next week.

Here is today's video:


Much warmer today...

After we began our Tuesday with temps near record cold levels, we will have a tremendous warm-up today with lots of highs in the mid and upper 80s. Some spots might even clip 90 this afternoon. Pretty amazing temp swing.

I expect similar temps tomorrow.

For the weekend, a frontal boundary will stall out across the region, and that will lead to a daily scattered shower and storm chance.

Lots of folks have some outdoor plans this weekend, including the big All-Star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. I do not expect a weekend washout. However, there will be some showers and storms to dodge, especially from mid-afternoon through the evening hours.
