Storms taper off tonight, weekend looks quiet

Weather

A few strong storms have developed this afternoon and evening

Today there will be one more cold front that will pass through the region in the late day time frame.  Along with the front we can expect some strong storms with gusty winds and good-sized hail.  The Appalachian Range will guzzle down most of the moisture and as the storms migrate east, they should settle down a bit.  Still intrigued by the possibility of some strong to possibly severe storms getting past the 81 corridor, so don’t be surprised late in the day or early in the evening a cluster of storms pushes through the Blue Ridge or even the Piedmont.  There may be some large hail in the Piedmont locations as the front passes through around the same time as peak heating.  Storms may line up and feed off each other so intensification is possible today.   I will be keeping a watchful eye on the storms that develop late today and tonight.  Then we dry out for the weekend.

Saturday and Sunday will be on the pleasant side with high pressure moving in and setting up shop for a couple of days.  Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s and there should be plenty of sunshine. The next round of rain is not slated to arrive until late Tuesday.

Stay safe.
