TODAY

It looks like we might finally have some small relief to the very dry conditions across the region. As of now, all of WABBLES is in a moderate drought which has lead to multiple field fires over the past few weeks.

When looking at the whole country, however, we really have it much better compared to many parts of the central and western US. This will change slightly, however, thanks to the fact there are more storms possible today.

Switching gears to the sweet sweet rain we are expecting, the current thought is that we will see a broken line of storms move through WABBLES in the afternoon-evening hours. The best chances for any stronger storms will be from 2pm to 9pm.

As I just mentioned, there is a low-end threat for there to be isolated damaging wind gusts (greater than 60 mph) and a tornado or two. The SPC currently has WABBLES in a Marginal (Level 1/5) Risk for strong to severe storms.

As a recap, a Marginal Risk is the lowest end given by the SPC which means that the threat is something to be aware of, but not something to excessively worry about. The keyword is isolated in this case and to know that there are more storms possible today.

The bigger aspect to be aware of will be rain that could get fairly heavy in nature when the line passes. This won’t give us the best relief from the drought, but the roughly .5″-.75″ of rain is better than nothing in WABBLES.

During the time leading up to the storms, you can expect broken clouds and temperatures reaching as high as 80 or so around WABBLES depending if we see much sun. How much sun we see could also impact how there are more storms possible today.

Wednesday

Going into Wednesday around WABBLES, we will see much colder temps thanks to the cold front that will have brought today’s storms chances. Highs around the area will likely stay in the lower 60s.
