The conditions are looking favorable for thunderstorms, some severe, later this afternoon and evening. The heating of the day, and moisture in the air will collide with the approaching cold front from the NW late tonight. Prior to its arrival, the unstable air mass will begin to rise and blossom into thunderstorms. As the winds shift to the north with the cold front's arrival, gusty winds will filter down from the upper atmosphere.
TIMING: I expect to see storms develop after 4:00 into the evening hours.
THREATS: Heavy rain, damaging wind and hail.
WATCHES/WARNINGS: As of this writing none have been issued, but I would not be surprised to see at least thunderstorm watches issued. Flood statements may also be needed later in the evening.
