Scattered t-storms again for Thursday
Severe threats stay north and south of us
With a front to our north and Laura working over land on Thursday, we’ll continue to be sandwiched right between the two systems for the day. The moisture from Laura will keep scattered t-storm chances in the forecast for the afternoon and evening ahead of us. Thankfully, any severe weather from Laura will stay to our southeast. The Storm Prediction Center has a slight risk covering much of Louisiana, Arkansas and western Mississippi for the strong to severe t-storms on the right side of Laura. The strongest t-storms in the spiral bands will be capable of damaging wind gusts and isolated tornadoes. To the north, the front will work together with upper-level energy to produce scattered strong to severe t-storms for the afternoon and evening. The slight risk extends from Montana and Wyoming on to the east toward New England. The Storm Prediction Center even has an enhanced risk of severe weather covering areas around New York City, Scranton, Utica over to areas west of Boston. Those areas will face t-storms in the afternoon and evening capable of some large hail and damaging wind gusts.
