StormTeam Outlook: Sunday, April 12th
Record Warmth Leads to Strong Thunderstorms
Thunderstorms are firing up along a cold front marching through the Northland. Warm air ahead of the front has surged north into the Northland inducing record warmth across the region. Some thunderstorms could be severe as they slowly move east and northeast, so take precaution if you are in the path of one.
The threat of thunderstorms will stay with us tonight until the cold front responsible for the nasty weather passes. Winds will continue to be very gusty. Ahead of the frontal boundary, they will be howling out of the south. But after the front passes, they will switch to out of the west and northwest. This will eventually usher in much drier air, increasing the threat for fires dangers to the start the week.
Looking ahead, sunshine will stick around through the middle of the week with temperatures once again climbing into the 60s by Tuesday and Wednesday. Another frontal boundary will give us the chance of some showers Wednesday night and Thursday before conditions improve by the end of the week.
Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of the weekend!
