Hawila’s Heads-Up: Mother’s Day Severe Storm Potential

First of all, Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! Thanks for everything you do! I wish we could bring you a better forecast for this Mother’s Day, but we will be tracking the chance for strong to severe storms in the afternoon and evening. Our area is under a slight risk for severe storms this Sunday. 


If you’re planning on taking mom to breakfast or an early lunch, I do expect mostly dry conditions with the exception of a passing shower or thundershower. Here’s a look at your Mother’s Day Planner


What we have to watch carefully is how much clearing and sunshine we see in the late morning through mid-afternoon. Increased midday sunshine will only create a more unstable environment, thus increasing our chances for severe thunderstorms by the later afternoon and into the evening as a cold front sweeps through the area. Forecast Track is depicting that chance of breaks in the clouds around the lunch hour.


Given the lackluster shear likely to be in place Sunday, our tornado risk will remain on the very low side. The biggest threats with any severe storms that can get going would be large hail and damaging winds.


Again, the biggest factor in this forecast will be how much instability we can build up tomorrow afternoon. We will be tracking this risk all weekend. Keep checking back here on kctv5.com and on air for the latest.
