Tracking the severe potential

Good Sunday to one and all. We have the potential for strong to severe storms across the region today.  This continues our recent trend of stormy weather, that looks to continue into next week.

One cluster of storms may move in early today, with another possible late this afternoon into the evening. That’s the one that may bring the severe threat to our region. Here’s the latest from the Storm Prediction Center:

Damaging winds and large hail are the main players. These storms will be heavy rain makers and may cause additional high water issues.

Additional rounds of storms will be sweeping in here on Monday, potentially bringing another severe weather threat. Here’s the latest from the SPC:

More rounds of storms will likely hang tough through Tuesday, but a little break in the action is possible for a few days after that. Temps will continue to average well above normal, in what is likely to be one of the warmest Mays on record.

By later this week into Memorial Day weekend, a lot of what happens will likely be dictated by what happens in the tropics. Some early season development is possible around Florida or into the Gulf of Mexico. Take all models with a big grain of salt, but it’s fun to see how they handle any POSSIBLE system.

The Canadian takes it into the central Gulf and actually has some impact on our weather:
