Strong To Severe Thunderstorms Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature the passage of a strong cold front which means some “thundah boomahs” are in store for most of the area. Look for highs today ranging through the 80’s with some low 90’s possible south. Humidity will be on the increase as well with dew points climbing through the 60’s today. Some clouds are being reported currently but should be moving out of the way shortly which will leave the strong July sun to destabilize the atmosphere. CAPE values of 1000-1500+ j/kg should be in place by mid day today. A line of convection has already formed over Western NY and this will strengthen and move east today. New storms will fire along and ahead of this line which is associated with the prefrontal trough. The cold front itself is lagging to the north west. Everything I talked about in yesterday’s update holds true for today and no big changes seemed to become apparent last night.

When thunder roars, go indoors. Keep an eye to the sky today.
