Another round of strong storms on tap for the QCA Thursday

Adjust Comment Print

As the storms merge into more of a line, damaging winds will become the primary threat, especially across the River Valley. Some areas hit by storms form Wednesday and Wednesday night can be hit again. A slight risk has been maintained for this outlook, with a potential upgrade to enhanced possible in later outlooks if uncertainties about convective coverage can be resolved and/or if an area of localized tornado potential (most likely across northeastern Iowa, southern Wisconsin, or northwestern Illinois) can materialize. The cold front will weaken slightly, while perhaps lifting northward late in the afternoon/early evening as a central Plains low-level jet strengthens to around 40-50 kt.Iowa, Wisconsin, and northern IL.

Thursday should be partly sunny, with a high near 79 and west winds at 5 to 10 miles per hour.

Heading into Thursday Evening we have seen a decreased threat for severe weather as storms are expected to move through mid-Missouri this evening.

The Noida International Airport will be located 72Kms from IGI Airport and 65 Kms from Hindon Air Force station Ghaziabad. The airport is expected to cater to 30-50 million passengers per year over the next 10 to 15 years.

Combined with a push of cool air, the building heat and humidity will provide plenty of fuel for these storms to be more risky than the average summertime thunderstorm. Will we get clearing and how much clearing (sun) will we get in order for the atmosphere to recover and set the stage for more storms this afternoon? Regardless expect highs in the low-mid 80s.

After a rare dry day in Upstate New York, thunderstorms are likely to return this afternoon - and keep coming through Saturday.

The storms the next three days could bring 2 to 4 inches of rain to northern Missouri. The passage of the cold front should bring an end to the severe storm threat later Friday.
