Tracking high winds and strong storms

MM’s Wx Vlog

Sunday Night: Mostly cloudy and windy. Chance showers late.

Monday: Showers & thunderstorms likely. Windy. Winds could gust to 30 mph. Some storms could be strong to severe.

Tuesday: Partly to mostly sunny. Light breeze up to 10 to 15 mph.

Wednesday: Showers and thunderstorms likely. Breezy. Winds could gust to 15 mph.

Thursday – Friday: Turning much cooler. Mostly cloudy, with rain likely.

Saturday: Partly sunny, with a chance of showers. Showers should end by sunset.


MM’s Wx Concerns

Strong winds today and tonight could cause shallow-rooted trees to fall, esp with our west soils and leaves still on the trees. Those leaves will catch more wind than if the tree were bare. Be prepared for sporadic power outages, just in case.

The concern for strong to severe thunderstorms Monday morning has increased a bit. The main timing looks to be between 6:00 a.m. and noon. That timing will become much more specific once the line of storms develops to our west late tonight.
