Severe thunderstorm watch until 11 PM on September 8

Updated Friday afternoon

For the second day in a row, we face the risk of storms that could become severe. A stationary frontal boundary is parked over our area and will work with heat and moisture to create storms that could become severe.

This setting is a little later than yesterday. Storms are likely late afternoon into this evening. Maybe some lingering storms overnight too.

Severe Weather Alerts Reminder:

hour For a wide area. This would have a higher probability of severe storms. Not a promise.

warning It is issued for active storms in progress. It will be tracked for about 45 minutes or so through the counties and cities identified in the route.

Severe thunderstorm watch until 11 p.m

There is a possibility of storms forming. Not all of them, but some could produce damaging winds greater than 58 mph, hail larger than an inch in diameter, isolated tornadoes, and/or flash flooding.

I have a list of counties listed by state below the live radar.

Weather setting at 3 p.m

This stationary front will be with us through the weekend, so we may have to stick around and deal with these risks every afternoon and evening.

This is still a weak performance, but it is still a guide to formation. I expect more than what is shown here.

GFS model from Saturday to Friday

We will remain unstable with storms possible every day and evening. This will mostly be pulsating with the heat of the day.

I’m showing an extended look at next Friday so we can see how this should direct Hurricane Lee (right side) away from the East Coast.

7 day forecast

The same unstable pattern that will provide us with a chance of rain each day will also help guide Hurricane Lee away from the coast.

It’s not a risk of rain that you’ll get every day, but it’s worth factoring it into your plans.

Paraphrasing my post about dyslexia

I know there are some spelling, grammar mistakes, and other glitches sometimes. I take responsibility for my mistakes and even computer errors that I may have overlooked. I’ve made some general statements over the years, but if you’re new here, you may have missed these: I have dyslexia and discovered it during my second year at Cornell. This did not stop me from obtaining my degree in meteorology and being the first to obtain an AMS CBM in the Baltimore/Washington area. One of my teachers told me that I had come this far without knowing it and to not let it be a crutch to move forward. That was Mark Wysocki, and he was absolutely right! I miss my mistakes in my proofreading. The autocorrect spell check on my computer sometimes does it unfairly which makes matters worse. I can also make forecasting errors. No one is perfect at predicting the future. All maps and information are accurate. “Verbal” things can get sticky. There was no editor who could check my work When I need it And have it ready to send on a newsworthy timeline. Barbara Werner is a member of the web team who helps me maintain this site. She has taken it upon herself to correct typos when available. It could be after reading this. I accept this and perhaps it will prove that what you read is in fact from me… It’s part of my magic.
