2019 Tire Rack Lincoln Spring Nationals Champ Tour Weather - Sunday



Good Sunday morning to everyone!

Looks like Lincoln was brushed with some showers last night, but luckily the heavier stuff stayed to the south.



From the SPC Severe Weather Outlook maps, it appears the severe weather is dancing all around Lincoln, but it's afraid to get any closer, so it waits until Tuesday before making an appearance. 




Lingering shower and thunderstorm activity will continue to
diminish through the early morning hours today. Generally dry
weather is expected today with high temperatures topping out in
the upper 70s. Precipitation chances will increase late this
evening and tonight as a shortwave surges out of the four corners
region. There is an enhanced risk for severe weather just off to
our west over south-central Nebraska, where supercells are
expected to develop this afternoon. Up to 30-40 kts of shear and
modest instability will be in place across the forecast area
Sunday evening to maintain a slight to marginal risk for severe
weather through the overnight hours. Damaging winds will be the
primary threat, as well as a chance for some large hail.

While this event appears to be fairly progressive, there is still
some concern about organized thunderstorm activity producing heavy
rainfall over areas with already saturated soil. Thankfully, the
bulk of the heaviest precip looks to set up further north, across
the middle of the CWA, which may be better set up to handle
additional rainfall. That being said, the need for another Flash
Flood Watch will have to be assessed as new model data arrives.

Remaining showers and thunderstorms will generally clear out of the
area Monday morning, giving the atmosphere an opportunity to reload.
A surface low will establish itself over eastern Colorado by Monday
afternoon, with a warm front extending from southwest Nebraska
through northern Iowa. Severe storms will be possible yet again
along this feature late Monday afternoon and evening.


All in all... not a bad day forecast. Most of the rain, if it rains, will fall in the evenings, leaving some nice dry concrete to go fast on! 

Have fun for me! 🙂

Hope everything us secure on site. The bulk of the severe thunderstorms are about 80 miles away.

There is a Severe Thunderstorm Watch to the west of Lincoln, but there is no indication at the moment that it will be extended east.




   Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 257
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   545 PM CDT Sun May 26 2019

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
     Central Kansas
     South-central Nebraska

   * Effective this Sunday afternoon from 545 PM until Midnight CDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     Scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 mph possible
     Isolated large hail events to 1.5 inches in diameter possible
     A tornado or two possible

   SUMMARY...Multiple clusters of strong to severe storms should spread
   east-northeast into central portions of Kansas and Nebraska this
   evening. Scattered severe wind gusts, isolated severe hail, and a
   brief tornado are the most likely hazards.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 45
   statute miles east and west of a line from 30 miles east southeast
   of Dodge City KS to 20 miles west of Grand Island NE. For a complete
   depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline update
   (WOUS64 KWNS WOU7).


   REMEMBER...A Severe Thunderstorm Watch means conditions are
   favorable for severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch area.
   Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for threatening
   weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible
   warnings. Severe thunderstorms can and occasionally do produce

    • MD 1086 CONCERNING SEVERE POTENTIAL...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH LIKELY FOR EASTERN OK...PARTS OF NORTH TX Mesoscale Discussion 1086 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 1127 PM CDT Sat Jun 15 2019 Areas affected...eastern OK...parts of north TX Concerning...Severe potential...Severe Thunderstorm Watch likely Valid 160427Z - 160530Z Probability of Watch Issuance...80 percent SUMMARY...A new severe thunderstorm watch will likely be needed within the hour for parts of eastern OK into portions of north TX. DISCUSSION...Radar mosaic shows a squall line across central OK arcing southwestward into western north-central TX. Recent OK Mesonet data have shown a decrease in the pervasiveness of measured severe gusts as the squall line has moved east during the past 1-2 hours. Nonetheless, the organized character of the squall line in an environment characterized with steep 700-500mb lapse rates, will likely continue to pose some risk for wind damage into eastern OK and north TX. ..Smith/Guyer.. 06/16/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

    • MD 1085 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 362... FOR NORTHERN MISSOURI...EASTERN KANSAS...AND WESTERN ILLINOIS Mesoscale Discussion 1085 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0948 PM CDT Sat Jun 15 2019 Areas affected...Northern Missouri...eastern Kansas...and western Illinois Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 362... Valid 160248Z - 160345Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 362 continues. SUMMARY...The severe threat continues for WW 362. Additional watches are being considered. DISCUSSION...Regional radar shows a line of storms has developed a weak cold front extending from portions of western Illinois into northern Missouri and far eastern Kansas. In addition, a fairly well developed MCV is now associated with the northern end of this activity, now tracking into northern Illinois, and storms here are beginning to bow out. A few reports of large hail (1-1.5 inches in diameter) and strong wind gusts (60 mph) have occurred this evening. Given the ample supply of low-level moisture (high 60s to low 70s F dew point temperatures), instability (1500-3000+ J/kg MLCAPE), and deep-layer shear (40-45 kt effective bulk shear), the ongoing storms should continue to pose a severe threat, particularly across portions of north-central Illinois where a damaging wind threat may be emerging and thus, a new watch may be needed. Additional storms may develop farther west along the front extending into southeast Kansas, and thus may require an additional watch here. ..Karstens.. 06/16/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

    • MD 1084 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 364... FOR NORTHWEST AND NORTH-CENTRAL OK Mesoscale Discussion 1084 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0944 PM CDT Sat Jun 15 2019 Areas affected...northwest and north-central OK Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 364... Valid 160244Z - 160345Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 364 continues. SUMMARY...Significant severe gusts may focus in a corridor as a supercell becomes embedded in the squall line over parts of northwest and north-central OK during the next 1-2 hours. Severe gusts 65-80mph are possible. DISCUSSION...A large-scale bow over western OK into the northeast TX Panhandle will continue moving to the east-northeast around 35kt and absorb a supercell over northwest OK. The inflow airmass over west-central and north-central OK features surface dewpoints in the 72-74 degrees F range. Given the extreme buoyancy sampled by the 00z Norman, OK raob (4200 J/kg MLCAPE) featuring an 8 degrees C/km 700-500mb lapse rate, the expectation is for wind gust potential to locally maximize with the portion of the squall line with the embedded supercell. ..Smith.. 06/16/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

    • MD 1083 CONCERNING TORNADO WATCH 363... FOR WEST-CENTRAL AND SOUTHWEST OH...FAR SOUTHEAST IN...FAR NORTHERN KY Mesoscale Discussion 1083 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0912 PM CDT Sat Jun 15 2019 Areas affected...west-central and southwest OH...far southeast IN...far northern KY Concerning...Tornado Watch 363... Valid 160212Z - 160315Z The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 363 continues. SUMMARY...Storms intermittently possessing supercell structure may continue to yield a risk for isolated damaging gusts and perhaps a tornado east of the tornado watch. A watch extension-in-area may be needed but dependent on convective trends. DISCUSSION...Surface observations along the I-75 corridor from Dayton to Cincinnati show temperatures near 70 degrees F with dewpoints in the 66-68 F range. KILN VAD shows an enlarged low-level hodograph with 0-1km SRH around 350 m^2/s^2 when accounting for observed storm motion. A tornadic debris signature was evident from KILN around 0150z in Wayne County, IN. Given the moist/marginally unstable airmass (250 J/kg MLCAPE per the 00z Wilmington, OH raob), a continuation of the severe storm risk may extend beyond the current eastern edge of tornado watch 363 and a local extension-in-area can be utilized if convective trends warrant. ..Smith.. 06/16/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...
