Williams’s Wrap: All Eyes On Friday
Friday will be the day to watch and be weather aware as it will hold our best chance for strong to severe storms. A slight risk for severe weather Friday still translates to the possibility of strong winds, hail, and downpours. A Flash Flood Watch will be in effect from 7pm Thursday to 7am Saturday for counties south of the Metro. Those areas could see 2-3″+ by the time Saturday arrives.
Thursday morning showers have shifted south of I-70. So even though the Metro has been pretty quiet, and will be for much of the afternoon, there will still be plenty of clouds to deal with. A few breaks of sun are possible later in the afternoon but we’ll still be dealing with more white and gray in the sky than blue. Spotty showers will continue to sit on the southern edge of the viewing area, but another round of heavy rain will develop late Thursday night and may try to push as far north as the Metro early Friday morning.
Area showers should ease up by late Friday morning and into the early afternoon, but then a cold front to the northwest will take aim on the region. Stormy activity will fire across southeast NE, extreme NWMO, and extreme NEKS and then move from northwest to southeast. Showers/t-storms (some strong to severe) will be at their full potential during the late afternoon and evening, mainly between 4pm and 10pm. Rain will quickly start to disperse after midnight and follow the cold front south and east. This will conclude a busy several days of unsettled weather.
