Slight Risk of Severe Storms Today

Quite a noisy evening we went through the other night as some strong thunderstorms developed and traversed the area bringing heavy rainfall to many local hometowns and a spectacular lightning display too! Rainfall ranged from an inch in some spots to well over two inches causing some flooding issues especially in areas near Amboy and the Green River. Tim Bejster sent us these images like the one below showing the river out of its banks.¬†Fortunately the threat for heavy rainfall isn’t as great with this next system that will be moving through this afternoon and evening but regardless there could still remain some water issues out there.

A quick moving area of low pressure and associated cold front will approach the area from the northwest today giving us another opportunity at potentially seeing some strong storms this afternoon and evening. Right now the Storm Prediction Center has placed much of the area under a Slight Risk (Level 2) for severe storms after 2pm. The main threats today will include mainly large hail and damaging winds, however an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. Stay weather aware as we head through the afternoon.

After the front passes Friday evening temperatures are set to nosedive especially Saturday as highs will struggle to reach the middle 50s even though some sun will be present. Don’t shoot the messenger! Temperatures will begin to moderate as we head into next week with sporadic rain chances.

Have a great weekend!
