MULTIPLE DAYS OF SEVERE WEATHER POSSIBLE THIS WEEK

Today: 73, Morning Storms, Mostly Cloudy
Tonight: 67, Mostly Cloudy
Thanksgiving Day: 81, Mostly Cloudy, PM Storms Possible

As we go into Wednesday Morning, a cold front is approaching from Texas. This line is expected to reach the viewing area around 7 AM and exit around 11-12 Midday. While this line hasn't produced any severe weather in the early morning hours we will have to see if the morning sun will allow for the line to fire back up. Shear and moisture look to be in place to support at least damaging winds within the line if it gets going again and we cannot rule out a spin-up tornado along the line. This front will make it into the Gulf this afternoon before it begins to lift northward as we go into tomorrow this will provide for yet another chance of severe storms Thursday night and into Friday morning. Right now the biggest threat with these storms will be large hail and damaging winds. As we go into Friday another round of severe weather will be possible as a surface boundary provides lift to fire off another round of thunderstorms. With shear and moisture in place, we could once again see a few severe storms fire up with the main threat being damaging winds and hail. An area of low pressure will then begin to form as we go into the weekend and move up the Gulf Coast. Heavy rain and thunderstorms are to be expected with localized flash flooding being an issue with 4 inches+ possible. Behind this low, a cold front will usher in cold air as we see lows in the 30's and 40's and highs struggling to get into the middle 50's early next week.
While the tropics remain quiet there is still a low chance of development in the Central Atlantic although things don't look too promising at this point in time.
