Fry Day May Start Thundery
There's still a fair bit of difference between the Euro and GFS over how hot it gets in this upcoming stretch -- the GFS still tries to paint a frontal boundary overhead that is a bit more active with thunderstorms nearby, with the Euro suggesting the front ultimately lies a bit farther north and is a bit less active. That said, there are a couple of time frames that seem to be prone for a bit more thunderstorm activity. First, Friday looks to bring a chance of some storms as hot air builds in...the storm chances look to be a good bit higher in the morning hours as a warm front crosses the region, with a few isolated storms possible in the afternoon. However, Friday's thunder threat seems (as of now) to be one of those "early morning specials" that wake some people up around 4 AM with loud rattles of thunder. The second chance would be on Sunday with a wave of energy crossing the region as the frontal boundary slips back to our south a bit.
