Today-Saturday Forecast

June 26th, 2013 at 11:33 am by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

Scattered storms, storm clusters & a few line segments are approaching/pass through.  Very isolated wind/hail cannot be ruled out, along with torrential rainfall in heaviest storms.

The sun is out in western Illinois & actual surface cold front & subtle shortwave are in Iowa & Missouri (the stronger shortwave is in Illinois).

This will need to be monitored.  Hi-res short-term data suggest new storm development & perhaps a line of storms by late afternoon-evening here as they develop near front & move eastward.

We will watch to see how this evolves & if any line can form.  There is extensive capping in western Missouri, Kansas & Nebraska.  If that moves east over front & overtakes shortwave, line may be a bit more difficult to form.

Front will pass tonight, rain will tend to exit.

Tomorrow & Friday, two upper troughs will pivot through along with a secondary surface cold front.  This may pop a few scattered storms.

I appears a third upper trough may pivot through Saturday, while a massive ridge with record heat & wildfires develops in the West.  This may pop a few scattered storms, too.
