High Water Threat Continues

Good Tuesday, folks. If it’s a day that ends in Y, then it must be another day of showers and thunderstorms. These rounds of boomers have been VERY common this spring and early summer, and the pattern shows no signs of changing. With so much water falling recently, we are back on high water watch over the next few days.

Today’s storms come in waves, each bringing torrential rains to the region. We will need to be on guard for renewed flash flooding concerns in some areas. In addition to the high water threat, some of the storms may be strong or locally severe. Here’s the current Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

Those showers and storms will rumble into Wednesday, bringing another severe threat and flash flood threat. Here is your Wednesday Severe Weather Outlook from the SPC…

We may catch a small break in the action on Thursday as heat starts to bubble across the region. A super-soaked ground, along with lush vegetation, will temper the temperatures around here. Still, 90 degree numbers will show up by the weekend, especially west.

Something else to watch for… Wait for it… Wait for it… Thunderstorms! Shocker, I know. A moisture plume from the eastern Gulf of Mexico will be aimed at the region this weekend, with a cold front diving in as we close in on the 4th of July…

Let’s take ’em one stormy day at a time. I have you ready to track today’s rumbles…

Make it a good one and take care.
