***Severe Weather Potential***
Thursday Evening (05/05) – Early Friday (05/06)
An approaching storm system is set to bring a line of thunderstorms through the Arklamiss Thursday evening and into early Friday morning. The Arklamiss is currently under an enhanced risk and slight risk for severe thunderstorms (level 3 and level 2 of 5, respectively). All severe weather hazards remain possible, including a few tornadoes.
The linear nature of these storms, along with some of the ingredients in play, favor the potential for damaging straight line winds as well as tornadoes embedded within the line. We will pin down more reliable details as we get closer to Thursday.
Rain could linger into early Friday, but we should start to dry out as we work into Friday afternoon and the weekend. A ridge of high pressure keeps rain chances away as the warm and humid conditions persist. Highs will climb to the lower 90s moving into next week.
