Stormy At Times...

Almost on cue, with big events this weekend, our dry, good feel air leaves with the muggies returning.  Couple in a fast, active sub-tropical jet stream with many disturbances racing through and you have the potential for heavy T-Storms with the treat for some severe weather.  It appears the main threats besides heavy downpours are wind gusts to 40+ and some large hail.   There will be many dry hours on Friday with the challenge being the timing of the storms that will roll though.  There will be more storms early on Saturday with a brief drying on Sunday before more wet weather returns next week.   With almost 9” of rain this month already, we could easily jump into the top 5 rainiest before May arrives.  Let’s pay attention during the next 2 days as we could see several Severe T-Storm Watches issued by the SPC.  The greater threat for severe storms hopefully will stay well north of Lake Pontchartrain.  Stay tuned!
