The Official Summer 2018 MCS fest Thread
« on: June 02, 2018, 03:07:11 PM »
I figure with summer ramping up it may be good to start a thread to track MCS threats.  Since they can be tough to predict, having dedicated threads is probably bad.

any ways, us here in the west have a decent chance of strong storms this evening with the cold fropa enhanced with an MCV picked up in southern MO.

So far, MCS "season" has been as slow as spring severe season.  Pretty benign weather pattern in place, until possibly late week.  Even then, just a weak front settling in to provide chances of scattered storms.

These summertime pop up storms we are seeing have been potent. Iíve already had penny to nickel size hail at my house and Gallatin has already had the same plus some wind damage.

SPC has not outlined any risk area yet, but we need to keep an eye on Friday. The cutoff low affecting the Mountain West will advect into the Ohio Valley and there will actually be some moderate upper level winds. Does not take much forcing in the summertime to get thunderstorms going and 30-40 kts of 0-6 km shear should keep the storm type organized. Right now the best kinematics appear to be south of I-40, but if anything occurs it will quickly evolve into some type of MCS with only ~100 m2/s2 of 0-3 km SRH.
AND A LOT CAN CHANGE BETWEEN NOW AND THEN.

July generally seems to be "peak MCS season" around here so not counting it out yet by any means.
