Return of warming temps and humidity brings potential for severe weather this afternoon and evening

Send a link to a friend

[March 27, 2012]  A cold front will move into the area from the west this afternoon (Tuesday). This front will interact with a very warm and somewhat humid air mass, producing thunderstorms along and just ahead of the front. There is a slight risk that some of the storms could produce severe weather beginning late this afternoon in the west and extending through the remainder of the area for this evening and overnight in the southeast. The primary severe weather threat is large hail and damaging winds; however, a brief tornado cannot be ruled out late this afternoon as the storms are developing. In addition, the gusty southerly winds will bring the return of unseasonably warm air to the region for today and Wednesday.
