Little t-storm activity anticipated today
JOPLIN, Mo. — With the current weather setup across the Lower 48, we’re not anticipating any severe t-storms for the rest of the afternoon and into tonight. That being said, there will be pockets of t-storms possible for portions of the country.
With an upper low digging into the western United States today, that’s providing some lift and instability for parts of northern and central California as well as parts of Nevada and Utah. That could allow for some scattered t-storms with the main threat being some lightning strikes, but nothing severe is anticipated.
For parts of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, mid-level lapse rates and lift are working together with a passing upper-level wave. That could bring some isolated t-storms for that region, but those chances look fairly slim along with a non-existent severe threat.
Finally, a warm front parked along the Gulf Coast is being used as a focal point for some rain and t-storms for southeastern Louisiana. Most of the convection should stay offshore, but any t-storms that make it to land will stay below severe limits with the main threat being occasional lightning strikes.
