Good Wednesday to one and all. A strong cold front is working across the state today and it’s bringing the potential for strong to severe storms. Once we get this front to our east, it’s game on for a late September feel to take control for the next several days.
Let’s start with today’s severe weather threat. A cold front is pushing into the state and will fire up a few lines of strong to severe storms ahead of it. The greatest severe threat is across the eastern half of the state. Here’s the Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:
Damaging winds will be the main player, but there’s also a small risk for a quick spin up.
Once this front blows through here, temps will drop into the pleasant category for Thursday and Friday.
Another front drops in later Friday or early Saturday as a deep trough digs into the region. There’s the chance this cuts off and spins on top of us into the first half of next week:
Not only would that bring very cool summer temps in here, but it could also keep the weather rather unsettled:
The closed low setup is one we have seen several times since April, so it’s interesting to see that continue into June. That would keep the heat at bay, but it will try to surge in here as soon as that system pulls away.
One gets the feeling this is the theme of the summer… lots of back and forth in the temperature department.
I leave you with your Wednesday storm tracking toys:

Have a terrific Wednesday and take care.
