Thursday Night: Clouds return, fog tonight; Severe threat for Friday night

Weather

Tonight – Increasing clouds. Areas of fog. Lows near 67.

Tomorrow – Mostly cloudy and breezy. Spotty rain is possible. Highs near 84.

Extended – We’ve got another batch of severe weather for Friday night into Saturday. The SPC has placed northern portions of the viewing area under an Enhanced Risk [3 of 5]. Baton Rouge and surrounding cities sit under a Slight Risk [2 of 5]. All types of severe weather are possible: damaging winds, localized flash flooding, lightning, large hail and brief isolated tornadoes. The current timing places the main line over the Capital Area by mid-morning on Saturday. However, some adjustments in the time will likely happen as we approach the event. Have multiple ways to receive warnings.

We get a short break from the rain on Sunday. However, showers and storms return for much of the work week. A couple strong thunderstorms are possible for Wednesday and Thursday with our next aggressive cold front.

Temperatures will stay above average until until next Tuesday. Expect highs to be nearly 5-8° above normal. More seasonable temperatures arrive by Wednesday.

HURRICANE SEASON:

Colorado State experts are predicting 17 named storms, 8 hurricanes, and 4 major hurricanes (Category 3 or higher). These projections are due to warmer than average water temperatures. Also, due to the likely lack of El Niño during the summer and fall. El Niño increases vertical wind shear – Wind shear rips tropical systems apart.
