Strong to severe storms expected this afternoon

  • What goes up, must come down; tracking storms and colder air

The mountains will experience some high elevation snow showers on the back side of this system Sunday night into Monday morning, which will be on the cool side with highs in the 50s and 60s.

Behind the front, there will be another blast of cooler air moving in on Monday.

Higher mountains will see accumulating snow over the next 3 days.

Threats: Strong to severe storms are likely. "That's coming this week as well - potential for storms and maybe severe Friday with a cold front coming through". Because of the expected progression of this line of storms in the Sunday morning hours, the system may lose some ability to maintain its organization, and some (but not complete) weakening is possible. Meanwhile the forecast surface map at 8 pm (right panel) shows the cold front with its associated low pressure centers barging eastward across the Appalachian mountains. A few of these storms could become severe.


The biggest risks are gusty winds and frequent lighting. Flooding is listed as a lesser threat, with the exception of localized flooding from periods of heavy rain. A tornado can't be ruled out either, especially south of the 'Burg itself.

Monday looks like a cool and sunny April day. Friday looks nice with a mostly sunny sky and highs in the mid 70s. With a clear sky and light wind expected overnight, temperatures will bottom out in the upper 20s and lower 30s across the area.

A watch means there is the possibility for severe weather in the next few hours. The sun will shine bright once again tomorrow and temperatures will warm up a little bit more to near 70°. There isn't a whole lot of moisture available, so we'll be mainly dry. There is a slight chance for storms Thursday evening along the Texas/New Mexico state line.
