Friday Storm System – Severe Threat Updated – Thursday Video

Good Morning!  We have a lot of ground to cover.  Hot day today, but a storm system will affect us tomorrow, which could have some strong to severe storms associated with it.  I have the latest outlook from the Storm Prediction Center, and we’ll check Future Radar to see how this storm system could play out.  There’s a lot at stake with some many festivals & events going on.  Plus, I have updated the Mother’s Day weekend details, on your Thursday morning weather briefing.

 

Storm Prediction Center has most of central and much of south Alabama under a Marginal Severe Risk for Friday evening/Friday Night.  Damaging wind gusts is the main threat.

Here’s just one of the hi-res model’s Future Radar.  This is how the NAM model indicates how the Friday afternoon/evening/overnight storms could play out.  There will be random storms in the afternoon & evening, but it shows the concentrated showers/storms later in the night and into the wee hours of the morning.  This is just one model idea.

 

Unfortunately the model trends show that there won’t be a lot of rain associated with this storm system, as far as expected rain totals.  Here’s a peak at the GFS.  Many areas may see .5 inches at best.

 

Here’s a look at the Euro Model temperature guidance for the next 9 days.

The Weekend Beach forecast.  Best chance for showers and storms from Friday afternoon/evening until first thing Saturday morning.
