A strong cold front will bring with it a period of heavy rainfall and strong to damaging winds to the region. The headlines depict the current thinking. Key factors include:
1.) How well the strong winds mix down to the surface. If temperatures reach the Uppers 50s to Lower 60s as expected, that will allow those winds to efficiently get down to the surface.
2.) Whether a fine line of convective showers and perhaps even isolated thunderstorms also help support bringing the stronger winds down to the surface.
SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the strong to damaging wind and heavy rainfall potential for Wednesday Afternoon and Evening. Another coordination message will be posted by 11 PM Tuesday Evening.
