Storms Move InMarch 27th, 2014 at 2:35 pm by Jason Smith under FOX10 Stormtracker Weather
We saw some decent sunshine and milder temperatures on this Thursday morning, with temperatures in the mid 70’s and clouds increasing by afternoon. The wind really increased around mid morning. A strong surface ridge area off the eastern seaboard combining with a frontal zone in the southern plains, is creating a tight pressure gradient. Strong southerly winds are gusting above 20 mph. The wind flow is creating tides 1-2 ft above normal. High tides will be later tonight at 10pm, so coastal flooding will continue to increase.
Rain on the Way
We have isolated chances of rain through this evening. Rain chances ramp up in a big way late tonight, mainly after midnight. We will see the typical “slight risk” of severe weather with this springtime frontal system. Strong storms are possible both late tonight and through the day on Friday.
The best chance of rain comes Friday and Friday night. Most of the showers should be ending early Saturday morning. Saturday afternoon and Sunday both look fantastic. Temperatures stay in the 70’s for daytime highs in the extended forecast.
