Severe Weather Potential

December 8, 2009

I figured this was worth a mention. Today is going to be a crazy weather day for most of the country. Some areas will see 50-60 mph wind and heavy snow, while others (us) will be dealing with the threat of severe weather. All parameters except strong instability are in place for a severe weather outbreak across the deep south. Sometimes with a storm as strong as this, you don’t need huge instability numbers to cause big problems. I’ll be watching the radars especially from around noon to 5:00 P.M. These storms will be fast movers, and will almost certainly contain strong wind. There is a threat for a few isolated tornadoes, and the Storm Prediction Center has us highlighted as an area of enhanced strong tornado threat. My gut says the worst of this will be just east of here, but it’s certainly close enough to bear watching. That’s just what I’ll do!
