I knew that late Wednesday into Thursday this week could provide a chance for severe weather in the Plains, but I wasn’t expecting that same chance to hold for us as well.  Altho’ I haven’t been rigorously checking the CAPE forecast this winter I do believe this is the first of the season.  (I confess:  I was actually cued into this by checking the SPC convective outlook rather than searching the models to begin with.)  Will we see severe weather in northern Virginia Friday?  It’s too early to tell, but there does appear to be some decent wind speed shear as a forecast cold frontal passage occurs.
Remember that Tornado Drill for March 15th!!
