Heavy Rain & Severe Weather Likely Friday
An upper-level trough and associated surface cold front will move slowly through the state Friday into early Saturday. The air mass ahead of the front will be very warm and humid, resulting in widespread thunderstorm development by afternoon and evening. The most intense storms will be capable of large hail and damaging wind gusts, and the entire state is under a slight risk for severe weather during the period.
In addition to the severe weather threat, heavy rain will be likely, with 1 to 3 inches of total rainfall possible across much of the region. Stay With CBS 6, We'll Keep You Ahead of the Storm.
