Stormy Thursday?

Today we reached 90 degrees in Kenner for the first time this year.  That kind of heat is usually enough to bubble up some daytime T-Storms.  We did have a couple of showers this afternoon, but coverage was limited to 20-30%.  The main storms stayed to our north & east and headed towards Mobile Bay. Based on what I’m seeing tonight, Thursday looks to be a more active day for T-Storms.  Why?   A weak cold front is coming + an upper disturbance in Texas is heading towards us.  Add in daytime heating and I feel we’ll see storm coverage in the 60-70% range or higher on Thursday.  IF this frontal boundary sags to our south, we could see a mostly dry Friday.  Daily storms return for Saturday & Sunday before rain chances increase for next Monday & Tuesday.  Memorial Day right now looks pretty wet at times.
