Teachman’s Take: Early Good Friday Rain
April 14, 2017

It will be a wet start to your Good Friday with scattered showers and a few thunderstorms.  I’m not expecting anything severe today.

Temperatures this morning are warm and humid in the lower 60s.  This rain will linger through the morning and start to move out of our area early this afternoon.  Temperatures should be able to recover as the clouds start to break later this afternoon to 75.  Winds will also be gustier heading into this afternoon up to 30 MPH.


We are under a SLIGHT RISK for severe thunderstorms Saturday late afternoon and in the evening.

Large hail is primary followed by gusty winds.  While there could be a shower in the morning, the better timeline for storms will be after 4 PM through 10 PM for the strongest.
Rain and thunder will linger past midnight.  Most of the rain should depart for sunrise services.  But, places south of the metro will have to watch the skies for any leftover showers.  Sunday afternoon and early evening will be dry.
More rain and thunder kicks in Sunday night and into Monday morning.  Pretty much all of next week looks wet with waves of storms.  If I were to pick a drier day, it would be Wednesday at this point — even then it’s a stretch.  Due to the repeated nature of rain through next Friday, keep in mind that stream/rivers and creeks will start to run high once again.
Take care,
