Friday’s Severe Weather Threat

Even though the SPC doesn’t have our area in a slight risk for severe weather, we still feel there may be isolated strong to possibly severe storms for Friday afternoon and evening. 

Upper level winds really tell the story when it comes to widespread severe weather.  Tomorrow the strong winds aloft remain to the north, so no outbreak of severe weather is expected.  The cold front and the sunshine will couple together to produce the showers and storms; however, weak windshear will keep most storms from becoming severe.

CAPE values still warrant the potential for small hail; the CAPE will be heavily dependent on the sunshine.  Higher CAPE is a signal for stronger updrafts.  Moisture is already in place, so strong storms that do fire will likely produce hail and damaging winds, especially along the front.
