A subtropical ridge in the western Atlantic and an area of low pressure in the Midwest will stream in Gulf moisture leading to another round of scattered showers and thunderstorms today with the risk of localized flash flooding returning. Friday into Saturday a back door cold front keeps scattered shower and thunderstorms around. Despite a second cold front approaching from the northwest Sunday into early next week, we should see much drier conditions compared to the last several days.
General pulse thunderstorms are expected across the region today, mainly in the afternoon and evening hours. The main impacts with these thunderstorms are cloud-to-ground lightning and locally heavy rainfall.
