More Storms Kick Off The Week

Good Monday, everyone. Our broken record of a forecast continues as more storms rumble across the state to start the week. While we track storms to start the week, it’s the Memorial Day Weekend everyone is interested in. As of now, things look active with the potential for a tropical system to throw a little juice our way.

Out there today, showers and storms come at us in clusters. This still does not look like a big severe weather maker, but the threat for strong to locally severe storms is with us. Here’s the latest Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

Additional showers and storms will be around on Tuesday, with locally heavy rains the main threat. Local high water issues ma be noted at anytime today through Tuesday.

We may actually catch a break in the storms by the middle of the week!!

The storm threat increases again as we head into Memorial Day weekend. This is also when something tropical may get going down in the gulf of Mexico. Whatever happens with that system could impact our weather for the big weekend and into next week.

The Canadian Model has a developing storm that heads toward the central Gulf Coast states, then actually takes a ride into Kentucky. It does so by swinging a deepening trough into our region, picking up whatever is down there…

The European Model has the tropical system missing the trough, leaving the system to meander around for days…

The Icon Model looks to be taking a similar route…

The GFS really doesn’t know what to do with anything and has no system…

There is some serious convective feedback going on with that model. Wow.

Let’s get back to the storms showing up out there today. Here are your storm tracking tools…
