Severe Saturday

It's looking more and more likely we'll have some severe weather Saturday as a potent disturbance moves into the state.  Storms with this disturbance will be able to produce heavy rainfall and additional flooding.  Once this leaves, we'll get a break, but we need to watch next Wednesday, February 28th. We'll have the potential for more strong/severe thunderstorms.

The main threat with this next round Saturday will be high winds and even a few tornadoes.  Since the ground is super saturated, it won't take much wind to knock over trees.  Please keep that in mind and take severe thunderstorm warnings very seriously.

The future radar maps are from and are from the Friday morning run of the 3KM NAM

Already getting close to the top 5 wettest on record.  With the rain expected Saturday and again Wednesday, we may make a run for #1 or #2 on the list.
Much of the state has a slight to enhanced risk for severe thunderstorms Saturday.  I expect a tornado watch to be issued.
