Forecast for Sunday, September 8, 2013

A cold front will pass through the region during the first half of Sunday. The front doesn’t have much moisture associated with and only scattered showers are expected. The front should progress nicely and mostly clear skies will likely develop by the evening hours. 

A warm front is expected to lift northward on Tuesday, possibly extending into early on Wednesday. There will be some increase in clouds as the front lifts northward. However, the best lift and convergence looks to occur away from our area. At this time, any shower or thunderstorm activity looks very limited. We will reevaluate this early this week in case this changes. 

There could be a lee side trough ahead of a cold front that enters our region later on Wednesday. This could spark a few showers and thunderstorms. Our region will be increasingly warm and humid as we enter the warm sector and thus any thunderstorm could be strong and contain heavy downpours. Confidence on the development of thunderstorms at this point on Wednesday is low. Otherwise, there will be a mixture of clouds and sun. 

A strong cold front is expected to move through the region on Thursday. This cold front will bring the best chance for showers and thunderstorms during the next seven days. Heavy rainfall and strong wind gusts are certainly possible as the air will be warm and moist ahead of the front.
