Scattered storms possible today... big severe weather threat in the Plains...

>> Wednesday, April 17, 2013

An overnight complex of storms made it into the mountains and then decayed as it tried to move into the foothills and piedmont this morning. However, that complex has put down a boundary that will likely aid in the development of some scattered showers and storms in the region later today and into this evening.

In the meantime, a big severe weather threat will unfold in parts of the Plains states...especially Oklahoma and surrounding areas. That significant severe weather threat will then spread into the Mississippi Valley region tomorrow. See the video for much more on this.

That system will roll into the Carolinas Friday and bring a round of rain and storms. A few storms could be severe, but the threat does not look as significant as it is in locations to our west.

Much cooler air will follow that system for the weekend. Look for 60s for highs, and that will likely continue into early next week.


Warmer weather...

>> Tuesday, April 16, 2013

Here's today's video:

Warmer weather is returning to the region.... highs today well into the 70s and highs topping 80 in many spots tomorrow and Thursday.

A big-time Spring storm system will gear up in the Plains tomorrow. A significant risk of severe weather exists for Oklahoma and surrounding areas by later tomorrow, and that threat then shifts eastward Thursday.

The system will roll into the Carolinas Friday and bring a round of showers and storms. The dynamics will be pulling away to the north, and instability will probably be fairly limited. However, the severe weather potential needs to be watched.

Much cooler air flows in here for the weekend with lots of 60s for highs. Some 30s still looks possible for lows in some areas by Sunday and Monday morning.

This is the 2 year anniversary of the big April 16 tornado outbreak. 30 confirmed tornadoes occurred in NC that day, and that is the record for a one-day total.
