MaxTrack Lightning Up

Posted at 2:14 PM, Aug 07, 2018

We’re tracking storms blossoming on the MaxTrack Live Doppler Radar. Temperatures are warming quickly which is what’s causing the rapid firing of showers and storms across the state. Temperatures have already reached the mid to upper 80s unless a cooling rain shower has just passed. A few 90s are on the board as well. Humidity is up as well making it a sticky feel outside.

As heating continues, small isolated storms will join up to form clusters and will produce torrential rain and strong wind gusts. Lightning, along with small to moderate hail will be possible with the stronger storms as well. A few storms will have the potential to push severe limits. Damaging wind gusts are the main threat. Minor flooding is also possible as these storms have a lot of moisture to work with. Use caution and head indoors if you hear thunder. If you see water covering a roadway, turn around and find another route. Storms will dissipate overnight as heat lowers, but there are more storms expected through the work week.
