A cold front near the area will once again serve as a focal point for the development of numerous showers and thunderstorms this Saturday afternoon. The Storm Prediction Center has placed our area in a risk area (not quite “Slight Risk”, this time) for potential isolated severe weather. The main threats, again, look to be very heavy rain in any storms as well as the potential for lightning and isolated damaging wind gusts in storms that are able to maintain their strength. You can check out the Storm Prediction Center’s technical discussion by clicking here. Pinning down exactly where the heaviest rain will be, or most widespread storms will form is nearly impossible at this range. But it does appear that most in our area should at least see some activity today. Stay tuned to our Twitter account for live updates on the event during the day today.
