It's been quite a long time since we have had even a possibility to see strong thunderstorms. But even though it's late October, Mother Nature has different plans! So lets get started with the overall setup. A very strong low pressure system out west, teaming up with strong winds aloft and a weak cape are all combining to build a very favorable atmosphere for severe thunderstorms. The chance of strong storms will mainly be in the southern part of our region, but it's a significant chance so we have to focus on it! The time frame looks to be during the afternoon on Friday, and the storms will likely move northeast or east. And with that, here is our forecast map for Friday's Severe T-Storm Threats!
