Next Round of StormsApril 17th, 2013 at 5:00 pm by Jason Smith under FOX10 Stormtracker Weather
A surface cold front will finally approach our area from the west late Thursday night. This boundary will be the focus for a big severe weather event in Oklahoma and Kansas, and then transition to the mid Mississippi River Valley. The potential for widespread severe weather is much lower here in our area. We do expect a line of storms, but the overall instability will be lower late Thursday/early Friday. The threat is primarily for severe t-storms for us, mainly over the western half of the area. The storms will weaken as they track through our area in the predawn hours Friday morning. We expect a band of rain, with most areas receiving about .75.” Lower humidity and cooler temperatures will arrive for the weekend.
