Colder air may lead to storms on Thursday


A cold front pushing into the area early Thursday morning could spur strong storms.

Isolated rain showers are possible Wednesday, and temperatures are expect to reach around 76 degrees.

Rain moving in from the west will arrive by Thursday morning. There is a potential for heavy rain and a few strong storms, said Meteorologist Rich Wirdzek.

“If a cold front that’s driving this moves in a little later in the day and we were to get some sun, and the temperature was to climb a bit, that would enhance the threat for stronger storms,” he said.

“We are watching Thursday closely for that,” Wirdzek said.

The National Weather Service says new rainfall amounts between a quarter- and half-inch are possible.

Thursday’s high will be around 68 degrees. As the cold front moves in, the temperatures will sharply drop.

“There is no worry that we’re going to have to deal with the return of snow or freezing temperatures,” Wirdzek said.

Friday’s high is forecast at 50 degrees. Scattered showers are also possible Friday afternoon.

It warms up to about 52 degrees on Saturday after a start in the mid-30s.

After a cold Saturday night, there is some improvement by Sunday afternoon, Wirdzek said.

By the end of the month, the region should be averaging 70-degree days.

“We should be around 40 (degrees) each morning still,” Wirdzek said.

Sunday’s high should reach 60 degrees.
