Confidence is really high that we are in store for a beautiful weekend. First though, we may have to dodge a shower or two today, as we have a weak disturbance that will be passing through this afternoon. It certainly won’t produce anything heavy. Tonight we clear out again and it is going to be a bit chilly, with lows dipping into the upper 40s. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday look spectacular! Highs on Friday will approach 80, the lower 80s for Saturday, and mid 80s for Sunday. Humidity will tick up each day, so be aware of that. Lows each night will be in the 50s. The newest data has Monday mostly dry, with shrs and t-storm chances holding off until Tuesday. Regardless, next week is still looking hot and humid. I’ll update the rain chances that will go with that heat and humidity tomorrow.
Late last evening a post was made on social media of a tornado in North Dakota. I shared it with our weatherTAP social media and people are going crazy over it! Check it out below if you haven’t already. You’ll notice that there seems to be no precipitation with the storm. We call these low precipitation supercells, as opposed to high precipitation supercells that we often have in the South. When you get as far away from the Gulf of Mexico as North Dakota is, you have much more limited moisture for storms to work with. This tends to lead to much better visibility of tornadoes and overall storm structure. I’ve attached the video below, for your viewing pleasure!
