Friday Afternoon Update

5/19/23 Friday 3:45 pm

As expected widespread showers and thunderstorms spread throughout the forecast area this afternoon. Unlike the last couple of days, we may be just getting started. Anomalously high moisture is in the process of streaming into the forecast area. This could lead to overnight showers and thunderstorms.

Here is the forecast for anomalous PWAT (precipitable water values) between 4 pm today and 6 am tomorrow. Values will range from 200% to 300% of normal for this time of year. PWAT is simply the amount of liquid that would fall over an area if the entire column of moisture is emptied.

Hydrologically nothing has changed since this morning so please refer to this morning’s update for those flood watches.

My next update will be Saturday morning.
