Bad Severe Outbreak Today; Extremely Humid and Hot

Hi everyone. I unfortunately was not correct on yesterday’s forecast. After calling for scattered strong storms, most of the day stayed completely sunny and very humid. We will, however, pay the price for yesterday’s nice weather. Because there were not any thunderstorms yesterday, the humidity levels have gotten higher from yesterday. CAPE values are astronomical for this afternoon, there is cold front ready to cross the region, and there is a ton of tropical moisture from Beryl. All of these factors signify a bad severe weather outbreak this afternoon. The Storm Prediction Center has placed us under a slight risk of severe weather, and I expect a Severe Thunderstorm watch to be issued later on.

The storms today will have hail, high winds, and even a small chance of some rotation (tornadoes) imbedded in the stronger ones. After the storms pass through today, humidity levels will drop and the rest of the week will beĀ pleasantĀ and more seasonable.

Chance of Thunderstorms Everyday Into Next Week

We are in a classic summer pattern: instability in the atmosphere with a chance of thunderstorms everyday. There is also another tropical system brewing near Florida that could turn into our 2nd named system of the year. This weekend and next week will be hot as well. Remember to drink fluids if you are going to spend a prolonged period of time outdoors this weekend.
