Tornado Potential with Severe Storms

September 20, 2018 02:50 PM

ABC 6 Weather

Despite clouds lingering well into the afternoon, we do have a setup on our hands favorable for seeing severe storms this evening.  A warm front lifting through the region along with storms developing in a line to the west will serve as a focus.  It is possible storms develop along the warm front as it lifts northward but this doesn't appear all too likely.  That said, if some do, they would pose a quick tornado threat.  Damaging wind with some embedded spin-up tornadoes on the line of storms advancing from the west appears to be our biggest threat.  Our timeframe to watch will be between 5pm and 11pm with the emphasis on the later end of that timeframe.

Storms moving through will produce brief heavy rain, but won't linger around long enough to create much of a threat to new or ongoing flooding in the area.

Cold temperatures become a big story for Friday.  A breezy northwest wind will likely mean temperatures drop all afternoon, ending up in the low to mid 50s under a cloudy sky. As the clouds clear Friday night, the mercury falls too, ending up in the upper 30s by daybreak on Saturday.
