For those who have donated to my site, your help has been greatly appreciated. For those not aware, donations to my site help me offset my personal out of pocket expenses…such as some of the model maps you view on here, are only available due to my subscription to the corresponding site. The F5 Data maps I post, also another out of pocket expense (monthly subscription). Updates to software (weather related), and costs for my domain name are also out of pocket to me. Any help you provide is immensely appreciated! Although it may seem I am not here and working in support of your donation, I have to work my forecasting time around my ever changing work schedule.
Good day everyone!
The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) indicates a MARGINAL risk of Severe Thunderstorms over portions of the LOWER MO VALLEY TO CENTRAL HIGH PLAINS…
ISOLATED SEVERE WIND AND PERHAPS MARGINALLY SEVERE HAIL MAY OCCUR OVER PARTS OF THE LOWER MISSOURI VALLEY TO THE CENTRAL HIGH PLAINS THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING.
Based on analysis of the outlook text from SPC, and verification from F5 DATA Severe Weather software, moisture in the lower levels will be sparse, with model solutions indicating surface dewpoints and relative humidity AOB 50F and 50%. Based on the lack of sufficient moisture, limited SB and MLCAPE values of between 500 j/kg to a small pocket of 1000 j/kg, and a forecast Lifted Index of -2 to -4, and a BRN Number of 10-20, it appears thunderstorm activity may remain elevated in nature, and possibly more quasi-linear in nature. However, there could be a brief period of an isolated supercell, should the convection venture into a little more favorable environment. Given that current forecast soundings tend to indicate shear is greater than instability, the chance for supercell development may be on the slim side. The SPC indicates less than a 2% prob. of tornado activity within the risk area, and F5 DATA software indicates the same slim probability, given the lack of any significant tornado forecast sounding indices.
Based on model solutions from both the NAM-WRF, and recent RAP model runs, the most severe weather and greatest probability for these threats, including any isolated tornadoes should they come to fruition, should lie within the outlined area in the following F5 DATA map. The most severe weather appears to be on tap for late afternoon, and should begin to wane after sunset. The second F5 map indicates relative humidity and surface dewpoints.
