Saturday’s Severe Weather Outlook

11:45PM

A disturbance will continue to push through the Northwest, while a new system enter into the Great Lakes region. I have issued an isolated risk for severe storms on Saturday. In the Great Lakes, in the Afternoon, SB CAPE is expected to get up around 1500, ML CAPE around 1000, LI’s of -5, and Effective Bulk Shear around 30-50KT. This along with a disturbance diving southeast from Canada will cause storms to develop. Some storms may become severe, as the continue into the Night before weakening. In Oklahoma and Kansas, in the Afternoon, SB CAPE will be up around 3500, ML CAPE around 2500, LI’s of -5, and Effective Bulk Shear of 40-50KT. This along with a weak disturbance will spark storms to develop, Some storms may bve severe as they continue into the Night and may eventually form into an MCS with help from the low level jet, as it continues to move southeast. In the Northwest, SB CAPE will be around 2000, ML CAPE around 1500-2000, LI’s of -5. This along with a disturbance moving through will help develop severe storms. They move northeast and continue into the Night as they move through Montana. Threats from any severe storms will be damaging winds, hail, and an isolated tornado. Below is my severe weather outlook for Saturday.
