Severe Weather Risk Late Today Highs In The 80S Cooler Friday & Easter Weekend

We have arrived at the warmest day of the week and it will be our day of severe weather risk. The overnight forecast from the Storm Prediction Center has a slight risk of severe weather from Southeast Pennsylvania northeastward through New Jersey to the Hudson Valley and western New England. The main risk is from strong gusty winds of 50 mph or more in some isolated cells. Tornado risk is not a significant factor and is at under 2 percent.

In the meantime we see skies are wide open clear from Southern New York to North Carolina west into Western Pennsylvania so the door is open for a solid day of daytime hearing. A warm front is well to the northeast in New England. Until the front gets closer late today, look for sunshine to take highs to the middle 70s along the coast to lower 80s inland.

Late this afternoon into this evening the front will be close enough to produce thunderstorms as the HRRR model shows. We see clusters of thunderstorms with some imbedded stronger cells in the mix. Usually the models tend to underdo the extent of thunderstorms. I think we could see reality outperform a bit late today as these storms move through. The loop takes us from 2pm this afternoon to midnight.

After the front passes we will see skies clear out later tonight with lows in the 40s to around 50. Friday will be a nice day with sunshine and a few clouds with highs in the 60s to near 70. We have another cold front that will be approaching on Saturday. Ahead of it sun will give way to clouds and late Saturday into Saturday evening, there will be some showers and possibly a thunderstorm or two. Saturday highs will be in the 60s.

A shot of breezy chilly air comes in behind the front for Easter Sunday. We will see a mix of sun and clouds with a gusty wind and highs just in the low to mid 50s. The fast moving pattern continues next week with another front approaching late Monday with the chance for showers and yet another follows Thursday with dry air between the two systems.

As far as today is concerned, we will update the severe weather risk later this morning on our weather in 5 video.
