Rain is back in the forecast bloggers, as you can see above! Nope, its not looking like much however rain is rain and we will take whatever we can get. We have had this terrible heat move back into the area over the past few days which is trying to make things unstable. So we will be tracking a few thunderstorms over the area by later on Saturday night into Sunday. But the question is, "Will they be bad?".
Well, by the looks of things right now we could see a stray strong storm enter the WLFI viewing area however I believe that most of the severe will stay just to our northeast. Still we will be watching things closely overtime. Take a look at our EHI map below.
You see all the bright blues in this image above. This is where we will see more unstable air for more strong storms to develop come later Saturday night into Sunday. You can also see inside that yellow circle is the area where I feel has the best chance for stronger storms near the viewing area. With it being that close we will be watching. Good news is I'm not seeing a big tornado threat with any of these severe thunderstorms to our northeast. Helicity values are rather low this time around which is a good thing! Right now if we seen any severe thunderstorms I would look for main threats to be Dangerous Lightning, as with any thunderstorm. Some small hail is possible. And a few gusty winds.
I will keep watch on this and try to keep you posted. Otherwise lets just get through today's terrible heat! And a high of 92* degrees tomorrow, Then the cool 70s return all week. We will start off Sunday with a nice cool high of only 78* degrees. And a low that night of 55* degrees! So now you have something to look forward to! lol. Take care!
