Almanac for Yesterday
MM’s Severe Wx Concerns
Strong and gusty winds today and tomorrow could lead to sporadic power outages across the plateau, especially to areas vulnerable to such outages. Driving high-profile vehicles could also be difficult.
A cold front will move into the area Wednesday. Right now the severe threat looks low but that will need to be monitored closely. The greatest risk looks to be from noon to midnight, though that timing will become more specific in future forecasts. I’ll issue a special blog update this evening at 7:00 to update everyone on this potential severe weather chance.
A powerful storm system will combine with unseasonably warm temps to give us another chance for strong to severe storms on Saturday. I’ll continue to monitor this very closely.
