The National Weather Service has a “potentially dangerous situation” pegged for us tomorrow afternoon into Friday morning…
…Severe weather possible Thursday into Thursday night…
A strengthening low pressure system over the Central Plains in
concert with a potent upper level disturbance will work together
to create a highly dynamic and moderately unstable airmass over
the region Thursday. This airmass will remain in place through
Thursday night into Friday morning as the warm front associated
with this system moves north over the area and the respective cold
front moves across the Gulf Coast states.
As this large system shifts east…conditions will become
favorable for the development of severe weather across southeast
Georgia and southeast South Carolina Thursday afternoon and
Thursday night. Showers and thunderstorms are expected to spread
south to north across the coastal plain tomorrow with the timing
of the severe threat starting early afternoon in southeast Georgia
and mid afternoon in southeast South Carolina. The main hazards
will be damaging winds and isolated tornadoes for late Thursday
and Thursday night. A possible second round of thunderstorms may
occur Friday morning around daybreak with the actual passage of
the cold front…and this may produce gusty and damaging winds.
Sure seems very springlike to me, and we’re still a month away from the official start. Guess all those street-level modifications I made to my GRLevelX installation will begin to pay off pretty much immediately, huh?
