You know its a slow severe wx season when folks are getting excited for summer MCSs a week out, while a tropical storm is knocking on the Gulf Coast.If we want a severe season that's not absolutely crushing record low numbers, this system's gonna have to produce. Doesn't look like much more than a brief spin-up tor threat for here as of now, but this could be a fairly substantial MCS threat as it stands. Maybe out in the plains this may be a bit more in the way of tornado reports though.
I've received 6 inches of rain in the past week, so unless Alberto strengthens somewhat, the rain it will bring during the first part of my week off isn't all that exciting.You know its a slow severe wx season when folks are getting excited for summer MCSs a week out, while a tropical storm is knocking on the Gulf Coast.
They started with a slight risk then upgraded it.Enhanced Risk on the Day 1 across Central AL into West Georgia due to wind threat. Outflow boundaries from that overnight MCS in AR/TN/MS are expected to be a focal point for some big storms this afternoon.
I haven't really been paying attention so I was a bit surprised to see the ENH risk when I happened to check the Day 1 this morning.
