Rain, Possible Severe Storms this Weekend

Ajustar Comentario Impresión

Seawater temperatures will range between 49 and 51 degrees through Friday.

In the Tampa Bay area, the timing looks to be sometime from late morning to mid to late afternoon.

Storms will exit eastern Virginia by around 4 a.m. Rainfall totals will exceed an inch in some locations. But, I think the main severe threat will come during the afternoon - especially between noon and 6 p.m.

If a severe storm develops near you, expect heavy rain (with localized flooding), damaging wind (up to 75 mph), hail (up to the size of half-dollars) and the possibility of a tornado. It'll also be cooler Monday with temps falling back closer to average into the Mid 60s to start the workweek. We'll have a cold east to northeast wind and temperatures may not rise out of the 30s.

The same storm responsible for the icy mix Sunday will bring more rain Monday.

Some thunderstorms may pop up early Sunday afternoon in inland spots along the fast-moving sea breeze.

Strong to gale-force (25 to 38 mph) northwesterly winds, below seasonal temperatures and partly cloudy skies are forecast on Tuesday into Wednesday with another chance of rain showers on Thursday. It looks like accumulation today will be in a two to five inch range with strong northeast winds doing what they can to blow it around, making for awful travel conditions. Paul International Airport and blizzard conditions forced the airport in South Dakota's biggest city, Sioux Falls, to remain closed for a second straight day. Accumulation still generally looks light, especially given our sun angle this time of year, but up to an inch can not be ruled out in the higher elevations. Winds as high as 55 miles per hour caused blowing and drifting snow, along with ice shoves in Green Bay. Highs for Friday will be in the mid 80s.

But many city parks and landscapes were filled with people trying to make the most of the first warm days of spring.
