Monitoring Severe Weather Potential Thur PM into Friday | News
We are enjoying a quiet weather day now that Beryl is lifting to the NE. We are seeing more sun break through now. Temps are also warming quickly. We will have a high of 90 this afternoon with dry air in place. Even though we will hit 90 degrees, the humidity won't be too bad. Today will be the quiet day before our next system gets closer to us tomorrow.
An approaching cold front will gradually increase our cloud cover on Thursday. Most of the daytime hours will be dry. We will have a better chance for some showers to develop late Thursday night into Friday. Some of the ingredients are coming together for us to have to monitor the potential for severe thunderstorms. The main threats would be strong winds and the potential for hail.
The map above shows the severe risk probabilities. The Storm Prediction Center has put northwest Georgia in a "slight" risk for severe thunderstorms. The timing would be late on Thursday. That risk area shifts to the east by Friday. As the front moves through, the rain chances are higher early on Friday with the potential for strong Thunderstorms. The threat goes down late Friday after the front moves to the south and more stable air filters in.
The storms will be gone by late Friday into Saturday. Saturday is looking good with mostly sunny skies and highs in the low 80s. It warms to the upper 80s Sunday with mostly sunny skies.
