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.
