Thunderstorm chances will increase Thursday ahead of a cold front that will arrive and push through the area Thursday evening into Friday.
The best chance to see strong to severe storms Thursday evening will be along and north of Interstate 40; however, gusty winds and large hail will be possible with any storm that forms along the front.
Storms will develop along the front Thursday evening and last through the nighttime hours with a few storms and rain showers continuing into early Friday morning. This is a look at the NAM model showing the storms developing late afternoon on Thursday.
This will once again be a case of scattered storms and not everyone will see the rain of severe weather. Temperatures will cool off into the 80’s behind the front for the weekend.
