Cold front brings in strong storms and a blast of chilly air

06 April, 2018, 04:16 | Author: Mable Gonzales
  • Weather forecast for this week

A cold front and upper level support for thunderstorms and possibly some strong or severe storms exists in the Deep South Friday and early Saturday.

For the second time this week, we have another chance for strong to severe thunderstorms moving into central MS by late Friday into the wee hours of Saturday. The tornado risk is looking rather low since most of the storms will occur slightly behind the front. However, most will wake up to temperatures in the 40s on Saturday, so have at least a light jacket handy.

The main threat from the stronger storms will be damaging wind gusts, but large hail and isolated tornadoes will also be possible. Ahead of this front look for a mostly cloudy sky Friday with a chance for a scattered shower or thunderstorm.

Parts of the Midlands are under a Marginal Risk of severe weather Saturday.

This line of storms should push through Acadiana between midnight and 8am Saturday morning.

The severe weather risk outlook has now gone up to the "medium" category (see orange shaded region) for areas mainly along and north of a Rusk to Nacogdoches to San Augustine line.

Thanks to a southerly flow temperatures will remain mild tonight as lows will only drop into the upper 50s to lower 60s, 10-15° warming than we were Thursday morning. Frost will be possible in spots, especially along and north of I-30. "According to the National Weather Service, these conditions are most likely to occur in the spring and summer months". Freezing temperatures are possible Sunday morning, with a mostly sunny sky after that.
