Now, for your Severe Weather Update for the Southeast Region. Could see severe weather potential around August 30th-September 12th.

Now, for your Nationwide Severe Weather Outlook. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has a Slight Risk of severe weather Saturday across parts of the Northern Plains area. Main threats will be for large hail, damaging winds, heavy rain, and flash flooding. An isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled out. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has a Day 4 (Sunday, August 31-Monday, September 1) severe weather risk from parts of Eastern Nebraska, most of Minnesota, most of Iowa, Northern Kansas, Southeastern South Dakota, Western Wisconsin, and Northwestern Missouri. Includes cities like Omaha, Nebraska, Minneapolis, Minnesota, St. Paul, Minnesota, Lincoln, Nebraska, and Des Moines, Iowa. Potential threats will be for tornadoes, large hail, damaging winds, heavy rain, and flash flooding.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, (#1) Hurricane Cristobal has winds of 75mph, gusting to 90mph, with a pressure of 985mbars. Movement is Northeast at 26mph. Expected to become extratropical by the weekend. Not a threat to any landmasses, but rip currents/high waves/surf are expected for Bermuda and along the East Coast. A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for Bermuda. (#2) A tropical wave located over the Eastern Caribbean Sea continues to produce disorganized cloudiness and showers. Upper-level winds are expected to remain unfavorable for development during the next couple of days while the system moves across the Eastern and Central Caribbean Sea. However, environmental conditions could become conducive for some development when the system moves over the Northwestern Caribbean Sea on Sunday and into the Southwestern Gulf of Mexico early next week. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is giving this system a Low chance, 0%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, and a Low chance, 20%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days. (#3) A tropical wave is forecast to move off the West coast of Africa on Friday. Environmental conditions could be conducive for some gradual development of this system while it moves Westward at 10 to 15mph across the Eastern Atlantic early next week. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is giving this system a Low chance, 0%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, and a Medium chance, 30%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days. (#4) A weak area of low pressure near the coast of South Texas is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Significant development of this system is unlikely before it moves inland over South Texas and Northern Mexico today. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is giving this system a Low chance, 10%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next couple of days, and a Low chance, 10%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days. In the Eastern Pacific, (#1) Tropical Storm Marie has winds of 50mph, gusting to 65mph, with a pressure of 995mbars. Movement is Northwest at 16mph. Is expected to weaken to a depression by this weekend. Is not a threat to land, but will cause an increase in high surf/waves and strong rip currents for Southern California at least through Friday. In the Central Pacific, all is quiet with no development expected over the next couple of days. In the Western Pacific, all is quiet with no development expected over the next couple of days. In the North Indian Ocean, all is quiet with no development expected over the next couple of days. In the Southern Hemisphere (South-West Indian Ocean Region), all is quiet with no development expected over the next couple of days. In the Southern Hemisphere (Australian Region), no development is expected over the next couple of days. In the Southern Hemisphere (South Pacific Region), no development is expected over the next couple of days.
