A surge of spring may bring thunderstorms our way

By  | 

Our weather is about to take a walk on the wild side over the next several days. Mild temps conitnue to push into the state this evening as scattered showers continue.

That mild air will become downright warm tomorrow. Temps will head into the upper 60s to around 70 degrees for much of the commonwealth. Temps in that range will put us within striking distance of record highs. Wind gusts from 30mph to 40mph will be likely.

A powerhouse of a cold front will cross the state Wednesday and this means business. A squall line of thunderstorms will be likely along this front as it races eastward. Some of those storms may become severe into Wednesday morning.

Even without thunderstorms… wind gusts may approach 50mph along and just behind the front as it blows through here. Temps will start the day around 60 and then crash into the 30s from west to east. Light snow will be possible by the end of the day.

Arctic air will then sweep into the state for Thursday and Friday. Snow showers and flurries will be possible Thursday and then we watch two potential snow makers diving in from the northwest. The first arrives Thursday night and Friday with the next one coming in over the weekend.
