Big John WEATHER Summary & Discussion
(Issued 3:00 pm Thursday April 24th, 2014)
Everything is right on schedule and a great weekend is coming up! Weak cold front stays basically north of us just adding more clouds. The next front is a stronger cold front due mid-week next week.
High is sliding offshore, winds are slowly shifting from northeast to southeast and we are getting a sea breeze front developing with some coastal clouds through sunset. No mention of any nocturnal showers from this action, too dry at the surface. But it will add to a cloudy start for Friday.
If there's any thunder Friday, busting through the cap, it will be over our northern inland counties. That will end Friday evening with the passage of the weak cold front and high pressure builds in for the weekend with warmer temperatures. Don't forget your sunscreen.
By the weekend, the center of the country will be "under the gun" with strong to severe spring storms. Eventually, that new front will slide this way but the deep trough in the polar jet stays over the Plains. We will get some noise and some wetness, but at this point, little risk of anything severe. We'll be watching.
