Severe weather potential today...

>> Friday, June 01, 2012

A potent storm system continues to swing into the region today. Showers and storms highlight the forecast, and we will likely wind up with a broken line of storms moving through from mid-afternoon into early evening from west to east.

See the video above... I run down some of the various severe weather parameters in play today.

The basic idea is that damaging winds are our primary severe weather threat. However, isolated tornadoes can't be ruled out, nor can some hail.

This also means that weather could be an issue for the college baseball regionals across the region today. However, the weather looks great starting tomorrow.

Delightful weather will then unfold through the weekend. Highs tomorrow should be in the 70s with low humidity.


Warm today with a few storms... unsettled Friday weather...

A frontal boundary remains draped across the region behind the departed Beryl. That front will lift north by this evening as a warm front and will kick off a few showers and storms this afternoon and evening.

It will be quite warm today with highs in the upper 80s...even a few lower 90s possible.

The past couple of days have been extremely active in the Plains. Hundreds and hundreds of severe reports have come in, and that system will move into our region tomorrow. I expect an active Friday around here with showers and storms. Some storms will likely wind up being severe. Damaging winds will be the big threat, but isolated tornadoes and hail are also possible.

This also means the weather could be a challenge for the regionals that begin tomorrow in Chapel Hill, Raleigh, and Columbia. The good news is the weather should be perfect Saturday and Sunday.


Beryl sending rain into the region...

Tropical Depression Beryl will continue to lift northeast from south Georgia and up into the eastern Carolinas through tomorrow. Widespread rain totals of 2-3+" are possible through the eastern Carolinas, while almost everybody in the region should see at least some rain. Some rain totals have exceeded a foot in parts of northern Florida with Beryl. For the Piedmont, look for scattered showers and storms today and tonight. The showers/ storms will likely be effective rain-producers in this moisture-laden airmass. Another cold front will move in Friday. That system looks rather potent, and some severe weather looks like a possibility. Behind that front, the weather looks great for the weekend with dry conditions and lower humidity.
