| Low Clouds Won't Likely Budge »
Monday afternoon, and a few showers and thunderstorms have been spotty. Most areas did not have much more than a few drops come down. So, when is our next chance of rain? It will likely come with a drifting cold front/inverted trough combination. A front will likely stall Tuesday to our north and begin a drift southward. It will take two days to get down here and then it will try to lift north, becoming somewhat of an inverted trough on Thursday. Thursday night it should begin a southward motion and turn into a cold front. By this time moisture should have pooled near the front and heavy thunderstorms will be possible. Severe weather will be limited due to weak flow aloft, but there will likely be a few severe thunderstorms to our west and north before the rain moves in Thursday night. Below is the surface forecast map by the new NAM model at 84 hours. This is valid Thursday night at midnight, or early Friday morning.

This may be a silly question, but I hear it's dangerous to be near windows during a thunderstorm because of lightening. So, my question is, is it okay to have a bed by a window on a second floor?
Thanks...I know this is a random question, but I'm about to redo our bedroom, and it would be great if we could put it by the window :)
It is absolutely OK. Just as long as you stay away from the window when there is a threat of a tornado.
