Nice Wednesday; icky (& rocky?) Thursday

Thursday, June 17th’s slight risk for severe weather

In what has been a poky severe weather season for us, we may get our first day of big activity tomorrow. That’s at least how it’s looking.

Our comfy highs in the low 80s today will be replaced with a sticky Thursday: highs close to 90°, dew points back in the 60s, and a muggy south wind. That, all ahead of the next system, that will fire storms on Thursday afternoon west of us.

How it’s looking now: storms arrive late Thursday evening/overnight and will pack a large hail and damaging wind threat, more than anything. I think the tornado threat will reside further to the north and west of us, but I can’t rule it out. Look out for torrential downpours too, which could cause some minor flooding – you know how soggy it’s been, lately.

More strong/severe storms could fire again on Friday. Keep it tuned here – we’ll keep you updated!

    Weather Channel says “Tor-Con Value is 8/10 in MN and 7/10 in NE IA” Agree/disagree??

    Steph –

    Are these storms going to be faster moving – or do you see an elongated time of storms over a few hours? Redevelopment going to take place throughout the evening behind the associated CF? Thanks.

    I think after the line moves through later tonight, we’ll see it quiet down. This line will be the main action tonight. Friday there will be another chance of strong storms, depending on where the cold front decides to set up across the area.
