Significant storm threat later in the day

0

“Thunderstorms will impact Western MN tomorrow morning and Eastern MN/Western WI through the afternoon. At least a few severe thunderstorms are likely with damaging winds as the primary threat. , but large hail and a few tornadoes could be possible during the afternoon.

Here is simulated HRRR radar through 7 a.m. Sunday, which shows scattered showers and thunderstorms moving through the area. Some of the storms could be strong to severe with damaging winds and large hail as the main threat, but isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out.

The precipitation potential through the weekend shows pockets of heavy precipitation with counts of 0.50″ to 1.00″ possible. After a higher potential for precipitation on Saturday, things dry up on Sunday.

The weather forecast for Saturday shows temperatures warming into the 70s and 80s across the region with some spots in the southern part of the state nearing 90F. Widely scattered showers and storms will push the state, some of which will be heavy to severe with locally heavy rainfall.

Here’s how much rain has fallen in the region so far in July. Note that the Twin Cities saw 0.88″, which is tied for the 25th driest July start on record. Duluth saw over 2.00″ and several locations in southern Minnesota saw over 1 “to 2” of rain so far this month.

Here is the latest update on the drought in Minnesota. Thanks to generally dry weather in recent weeks, parts of central Minnesota, including the Twin Cities, are now experiencing severe to moderate drought conditions.

The weather forecast for Minneapolis on Saturday shows temperatures warming to near 90F. There will be widespread showers and thunderstorms with locally heavy rain.

Hourly temperatures for Minneapolis on Saturday show temperatures starting in the lower 70s and warming in the upper 80s to near 90°F in the afternoon. Strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible in the morning/noon with persistent thunderstorms possible in the afternoon.

The extended temperature outlook for Minneapolis shows above average temperatures in the Twin Cities on Saturday. Readings will fall to near normal levels on Sunday and next week.

The extended weather forecast for the next 7 days shows hot and stormy weather on Saturday. Sunday and Monday will be cooler and drier before the showers return midweek. Note that temperatures will drop into the lower 80s until the 2nd half of the week.

According to the NBM and ECMWF Extended Temperature Forecast, temperatures will still be above average on Sunday but cool to more normal levels in the last week of July. Highs near 90F return in early August.

According to NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center, the 8-14 day temperature forecast shows above average temperatures across much of the central United States.

According to NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center, the 8- to 14-day precipitation forecast shows more active weather in place in the Southwest as well as the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes region.

Only in Minnesota can you be knee-deep in mud with dust blowing in your face. The weather changes rapidly at this latitude. Years ago, a weather wise man told me that only Siberia had more temperature and humidity variation than Minnesota and the Dakotas.

Which is logical. The further away you are from the moderating influences of seawater, the greater the extremes.

So here we are in a severe drought (Twin Cities and southern suburbs) with a good chance of strong to violent thunderstorms later in the day. We need rain, but big hail, damaging winds and a few spurious tornadoes? No thanks. Stay alert there.

The European model (ECMWF) is printing precipitation amounts of 0.5-1″ by late tonight. I’m not going to get my hopes up too much yet.

We are cooling next week with some low 70s and 80s for the highs, along with a welcome drop in dew point and humidity. The odds are in favor of a few more 90 degree heat waves later in September and October, but Canadian (free) AC next week is looking pretty good right now. We are due for some relief.

“It was my duty” to warn of the dangers of extreme heat, meteorologist John Hammond said after his exchange with a skeptical GB News presenter went viral on Twitter. As an extreme heat wave broke records in the UK last week, a video of a meteorologist made the rounds on social media as a news presenter told him to be ‘happy with the weather’ , in a scene that many users are comparing to that of the 2021 film “Don’t Look Up”. Meteorologist John Hammond warned GB News viewers in the days leading up to the heat wave that temperatures could be deadly for “hundreds or even thousands” of Britons.

“Whello adventure Capital’s world is slowing, climate tech is going against the grain as space startups continue to clinch deals at a record pace. In the process, the sector climbs the ladder. In the first quarter of this year, five climate technology deals made it to CB Insight’s top 10 lists covering both seed and venture capital cycles. In total, these five climate technology agreements have generated $1.4 billion in funding. In the second quarter, eight such startups made the lists, collectively attracting investments worth $2.5 billion. The trend is even stronger if we omit the data from China, where the influence of the Communist Party tends to warp the fundraising picture. Outside of China, the presence of climate technology in CB Insight’s top 10 lists increased from two in the first quarter to six in the second quarter, and investments rose from $635 million to $2.1 billion. . »
