Thunderstorms In The Wednesday Forecast

Good morning bloggers,


Minimal Hurricane Gert with 74 mph winds at its center is tracking harmlessly out to sea over the Atlantic Ocean. You can see Gert on this surface analysis that is valid Wednesday morning, below:


We have another rather interesting summer set-up across the plains states that is in the development phase today. By early Wednesday morning, as you can see above, there is another interesting frontal system tracking over the plains states. A surface trough extends from near the USA/Canada border south to west Texas. A rather weak warm front, but it is still obvious in the isobars, is forecast to extend from near Salina, KS east southeast to northern Tennessee.  A cold front will be developing as well. I can likely be analyzed on this surface map, but it isn’t obvious so I left it off. That surface trough will become the cold front by evening, or part of it will become the cold front.  High levels of low level moisture are available for this system and rainfall rates in the slow moving thunderstorms could be 2″/hour or greater. This will  likely result in a few spots getting up to 3″ of rain if it rains for more than an hour or two in your location.

Let’s see how the morning data comes in and we will monitor and share this with you on the Weather2020 blog and social media.  Have a great Tuesday!
