We're on our second straight day of a Severe Thunderstorm Watch, as the SPC has just issued this for the southern half of our area (yesterday's was for the northern half):
On top of getting our 5th Severe Thunderstorm Watch of the season, the NWS also has us under just our 2nd Flood Watch of the season. Obviously this is due to high PWAT values (around 1.8) and not because of saturated grounds, as we have only received 0.05" of rain over the past week. Hardly enough for flash flooding of any type.
I think with a soupy environment and just enough shear, we could finally see some decent storms this afternoon. Nothing tornadic, just some small hail and gusty winds. The heavy rain threat will probably be more in the overnight hours as large scale MCS's may form and train over the southern half of the area.
Severe Thunderstorm Warning Chance: 40%
1"+ Rain Chance: 20%
The Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been cancelled. A line of storms with brief heavy rain did roll through a little after 7pm, dropping 0.30"... but no warnings.
