Spring's Fury

Another round of severe weather is likely across many states, stretching from the Ohio Valley to the east coast.

The month of April has been very active with regards to severe weather and it looks like that active trend will continue. Another energetic system is diving out of the Rockies and into the Plains and this will trigger more storms across the country.

Tuesday night and into Wednesday, all of this will slide eastward. The Ohio Valley is most at risk Tuesday evening and Tuesday night. The eastern seaboard will feel the effects primarily on Wednesday afternoon. Although thunderstorms in our area will be spotty, any storms that develop will have the potential to produce severe weather. The main concerns with any thunderstorms that develop will be the threat for damaging wind gusts and large hail.

These storms will be triggered by a cold front that will push large amounts of warm, humid air our way. Temperatures in advance of the front on Wednesday afternoon will reach the mid and upper 80s. This warm weather, combined with the humidity and the dynamics from the front will contribute to the few storms that we see. On another note, cooler air will arrive for Thursday and especially for Friday. Highs on Friday afternoon will only be in the upper 50s with scattered showers, so don't put the jackets too far away!
