TODAY’S SEVERE THREAT Updated – 3 Storm Systems This Week

Get ready.  We’re in for a very active week and, in fact a very active 2 weeks, as a series of storm systems swing through the South, roughly every 3 days.  There’s about 5 of these in the pipeline in the next 15 days, including 3 this week.

TODAY’S SEVERE THREAT:  A line of strong to severe storms will cross state this afternoon & tonight.  The main threat will be damaging wind gusts, 60+ mph, and up to quarter size hail.  The line may tend to begin weakening east of I-65.  Nevertheless, almost the entire state eastern half of the state is in the marginal severe risk.  Strongest threat is in the western half of the state, in the ‘slight” risk area.

FUTURE RADAR:  The line of storms enters the state by about lunch time and marches eastward through the afternoon and into the evening.  The greatest threat of damaging wind gusts will be within the line of storms.  The tornado threat is very, very small. Not quite zero, though. Our weather alert will alert you if watches and warnings are issued for your area.  Please allow push notifications, so that we can reach you on your smart phone and/or tablet.  Here are some future radar snapshots.

 

PARADE OF STORM SYSTEMS:  The storm systems are backed up all the way out into the Pacific ocean.  Today’s storm, will be the first of three in the week ahead.  Looks like the next two will affect us by Monday night and again Thursday night.   Both of these storm systems will likely involve more strong to severe storms.   The Thursday storm system impresses me the most out of the three.  And, more of the same is expected next week.

 

FUTURE SEVERE WEATHER THREATS:  From the Storm Prediction Center, here’s a look ahead to the severe weather threats for Sunday, Monday and Wednesday.

 

LATEST FUTURE RADAR LOOP:  This takes you through the afternoon & evening, ending at 10PM tonight.

 

Stay weather aware.  Keep checking our app.  I’ll keep you updated you as much as possible.  Tomorrow, there will be some spotty showers around, but no severe weather is expected Sunday.  Partly sunny with s high in the low 80’s.  Have a nice weekend.
