Today’s Severe Weather Outlook

4-17-2014 7-57-18 AMThursday, April 17, 2014
Forecaster: Ryan Stinnett

No risk for severe weather today, but we will be watching a few areas for thunderstorms today.

Areas around the Gulf Coast and especially the peninsula of Florida are likely to see widespread showers and some storms today. There will be a risk for some gusty winds, heavy rain, and even the threat for hail in the area. Storms will likely develop later this afternoon after a warm front pushes on shore and daytime heating has allowed instability to increase. Storms will last into the evening hours.

Also, watch for scattered convection in the northwestern Great Basin. A trough moving onshore will enhance the uplift enough today to produce some thunderstorms.

There remain a few flood watches and warnings over northern New England that MyWARN continues to alert users in these areas too. Melting snow is allowing rivers and streams to overflow their banks in the region.

For Friday, we will be monitoring an area of low pressure moving out of the northeastern Gulf of Mexico as it will be bringing very heavy rainfall to portions of Florida, Georgia, and Alabama. Flash flood watches have been issued as very heavy rainfall is expected in these areas.
