72-Hour Weather Hazards

Five-Day Weather Forecast

Friday: Mostly sunny & windy. Gusts up to 15 mph.
Saturday: Increasing clouds & windy. Wind gustts to 25 mph possible.

Trending Forecast (NEW!)
Much can be learned by watching trends. For instance, if on Tuesday I forecast a high chance for rain on Saturday but then on Wednesday I drop those chances a bit, you can know the forecast is trending drier for Saturday. You may see some changes to this graphic as I work on it a bit, but this should be helpful in knowing what I’m thinking about the forecast.
Storm Prediction Center Forecast
A secondary peak in severe weather often occurs in November. I’ll keep an eye on that in the coming weeks.
Day 1 is today and then the days progress ahead. By Day 2 (Thursday) there is a risk of severe storms across western Kansas, Oklahoma, and the Panhandle of Texas. That system tracks eastward on Friday (Day 3) to bring severe storms to Oklahoma and Texas. This system now looks to significantly weaken as it moves into our region.
On This Day
1966- A rare, early-season snowstorm strikes the mid state, as Nashville ties its record for greatest one-day snowfall for November, measuring 7.2″. (This month’s MMPro newsletter has a full story on this!)

Five-Day Rainfall Forecast
Current Snow Cover Map
Tropical Storm Lisa and Hurricane Lisa are being monitoried by the National Hurricane Center.
Tropical Storm Lisa became Hurricane Lisa yesterday. That storm will track into Central America tonight. That system is expected to move into the southwest Gulf of Mexico but environmental conditions are expected to be so harsh that the system will struggle to survive.
Tropical storm Martin is expected to become Hurricane Martin out in the Atlantic. That system will not threaten the mainland of the US.
