Soggy Outlook

May 14, 2015: The outlook for the weekend is looking a little stormy. Friday and Saturday both feature chances for spotty showers and t-storms in the morning, but generally quiet weather by the afternoon and evening.

Threattrack outlook for the weekend, with generally low risk for strong storms.

Sunday, however, could be a little more interesting.  There is a low risk for stronger to severe thunderstorms, due to warmer air and higher humidity.  This means the instability in the atmosphere is higher, adding fuel for those storms.  We’ll have to watch a cold front closely as it works in by Sunday evening.

So, what does a low risk mean? Essentially, there is a risk, but we as this point won’t see widespread severe weather, nor is it likely.  There could be a severe storm or two, so stay alert!  We’ll provide updates on the situation leading up to Sunday.
