Chance T-Storm Late TuesdayOctober 14th, 2013 at 2:36 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
This is the T-Storm Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center for Tuesday PM/Night. Michigan is “in the green”, which means all of us have a chance of a thunderstorm. SPC says: “A FEW TSTMS WILL BE POSSIBLE AMIDST AN INCREASINGLY SHEARED KINEMATIC ENVIRONMENT…WEAK LAPSE RATES…WIDESPREAD CLOUDS…AND MARGINAL MOISTURE CONTENT WILL RESULT IN QUITE LIMITED AIR MASS DESTABILIZATION. AS SUCH…NO SEVERE WEATHER IS EXPECTED.”
We will likely have a similar situation to what we had Saturday evening. with a band of showers and a few t-storms coming in from Lake Michigan from mid-afternoon into the evening. This set-up looks a little better than Saturday. Lake Michigan is quite warm for mid-October. As I write this, the mid-lake Michigan buoy, about 40 miles west of Holland shows a water temp. of 64. That’s warm water and that could help the cause. Today gets a little breezy with increasing cloudiness this AM. Beginning on Wednesday it looks cool, especially as we get toward the end of the week.
