Showers and thunderstorms are expected to begin developing across the plateau later this evening. While a strong storm or two are possible, severe storms are looking less likely. Still, just be aware that a storm or two could produce gusty winds, heavy rainfall, and deadly lightning. We still can’t rule out an isolated, locally severe storm.
The severe weather threat may be a bit higher tomorrow. I’ll update on that in the morning.
Our region remains highlighted in a MARGINAL RISK for severe storms by the Storm Prediction Center from now through Thursday. This is the lowest of the five severe weather risk categories. So, our risk is low but not zero.
This is modeled radar from 3:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Notice t-storm activity increases later this evening. The simulation moves in one-hour increments.
Showers and thunderstorms are still expected to become much more numerous as we go into the evening and overnight. A few storms could be strong to locally severe. Widespread severe weather is not expected.
Storms on Thursday could once again pose a severe weather threat. I’ll update on that in the morning.
