Suchan Says: Severe T-Storm Watch



After an intensely hot and humid day, a cold front is slowly pushing into the area.  This will likely produce scattered storms to finish the day.  A Severe T-Storm Watch was issued to cover the risk of downburst winds in any “pulse” severe storm.  What I mean by pulse, the nature of the storms in a very unstable atmosphere but with very little wind shear does not yield our typical spring severe storms that can become supercells.  Instead, a hot summer day storm can briefly intensify to produce strong winds or hail before quickly collapsing and weakening.

The severe risk quickly diminishes by or after midnight.

Sunday will be a cooler day technically but still in the lower to even mid 90s.  Monday is a day or relief with 80s and lower 90s but also lower humidity levels before turning Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.
