Tuesday August 25 2020

The headlines have been about the tropics, but today we have a local increased risk for severe storms. That timeline is below, plus a quick look at the topics. Marco fell apart yesterday, but Laura is expected to become a major hurricane before making landfall. That storm will then bring us more heavy rain over the weekend.

Severe Storm Potential Today

Storms will arrive this evening from north to south, primarily later in the day and evening. The threat includes: Dangerous Lightning, Damaging Winds over 58 mph, Large Hail over 1 inch diameter, and isolated Tornadoes.

Morning Surface Weather

A cold front will bring us the risk of severe storms. But it will be HOT with temperatures reaching the mid 90s.

Marco was downgraded to a Depression late Monday before making landfall. Laura is about to be upgraded to a Hurricane. This is expected t reach Category 3 intensity before landfall tomorrow. Then it will curve north and east to bring us heavy rain this weekend.
