Franklin leaving

GULFIR172212045

Hurricane Franklin is churning out in the Southern Bay of Campeche.   It will have one last hurrah as this minimal storm goes into Mexico.  As it moves westward it will die out, but even now it is a small hurricane.  It is packing 75mph winds,  minimum low pressure of 984mb.  It’s movement is 12mph and heading due west.

Dry air is being shown on Satellite imagery, swirling towards Franklin’s center.    It is also beginning to show a ragged eye and shearing.   It will become a Tropical Depression entering Mexico.   Watches and Warnings are already out.    Expect high waves,  along with the winds and torrential downpours.  Tornadoes/Waterspouts can be expected.

The other two systems will interact w/ a cold front that extends towards New England.   These systems will be areas of Low Pressure along the frontal boundary.  The amount of rain will depend on how much moisture and the strength of these of these disturbances.

...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 PM PDT THIS
EVENING...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of northeast California and Nevada.

* Until 10 PM PDT this evening

* An upper low and abundant moisture will provide a threat for
  flash flooding through this evening.

* The highest potential for flash flooding will exist mainly north
  of Interstate 80 with lesser chances to the south where drier
  air can be seen filtering into the region. Strong outflow winds
  and small hail are more of the threat for these southern areas.

* Steep terrain, recently burned areas from wildfires, and areas
  which have already received heavy rainfall since last weekend
  will be especially at risk for flash flooding and debris
  flows.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

People in the watch area should continue to be aware of the
possibility for heavy rainfall, avoid low lying areas, and be
careful when approaching highway dips and underpasses. Do not
drive your vehicle into areas where water covers the road. The
road may be washed out or the water depth may be too great to
allow your car to cross safely.

Flash Flood Warning
National Weather Service Reno NV
334 PM PDT WED AUG 9 2017

The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a

* Flash Flood Warning for...
  Douglas County in western Nevada...

* Until 630 PM PDT

* At 331 PM PDT, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms producing
  heavy rain across the eastern parts of Douglas County, east of
  Minden and Gardnerville. This includes the Preacher Fire burn
  area. Storms will continue through at least 4 PM with rainfall
  amounts over one inch likely.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include the recent
  Preacher Fire burn area, Buckeye Creek, Highway 395 between
  Gardnerville and Topaz Lake including Holbrook Junction. Watch for
  debris flows which can occur suddenly.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Move away from recently burned areas. Life-threatening flooding of
creeks, roads and normally dry arroyos is likely. The heavy rains
will likely trigger rockslides, mudslides and debris flows in steep
terrain, especially in and around these areas.

Another Atlantic Disturbance

1799images (3)

The depression that is near the coast of Africa is a disturbance (13 degrees North Latitude, 32 degrees West  Longitude) is little  more than a few Thunderstorms. Now let’s say for the sake of argument that this (Tropical Wave) flowers unto a larger, more organized system.  Over the next two days, we are seeing a 20% chance of becoming  more organized.

IMHO, this disturbance will  go the way of the last storm.  A few thunderstorms to the south and winds moving to the West at 10-20mph.  This system has the earmarks of the last one.  A fluff of clouds,  a cup of coffee and another system that is absorbed and forgotten.

Tropical Storm Hilary is off the Western side of Mexico.  I wonder if there is a recount looming.   Tropical Storms Irving and Hilary are feeding upon each other.  These storms will coalesce into a bigger ripple, a few thunderstorms and some wind.

This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of central...east
central...south central and southeast Colorado.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will develop across
the mountains this afternoon then spread eastward across the
southeast plains late this afternoon through this evening. A few
storms across the southeast plains could become severe producing
hail around 1 inch in diameter or larger, and wind gust over 60 mph.
Thunderstorms will congeal into a large cluster across the
southeast plains this evening which will move slowly eastward into
KS during the overnight hours. The primary thunderstorm risk across
much of southern CO through tonight will be heavy rainfall and flash
flooding, particularly where ground conditions are already saturated
by recent heavy rains. Burn scars will also be susceptible to
flash flooding through this evening, and heavy rainfall in steep
terrain could cause rock slides and rapid flooding of streams and
creeks.

Cloud to ground lightning will also be a risk with thunderstorms
through tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Scattered to numerous afternoon into evening showers and
thunderstorms are anticipated into Monday. The primary
thunderstorm threats during this time-frame will be heavy rainfall
capable of producing localized flash flooding, hazardous
lightning, hail generally under the size of dimes and wind gusts
around 50 mph at times.

Then, generally isolated to scattered shower and thunderstorms,
favoring higher terrain locations, should be noted from Tuesday
into Friday. The more intense storms during this time frame will
be capable of producing heavy rain and localized flash flooding,
hazardous lightning, small hail and gusty winds.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
likely this afternoon through tonight across much of south
central and southeast Colorado.

additional heavy rain could result in flash flooding. Burn scars
in the mountains will also be vulnerable to flash flooding.

...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH LATE TONIGHT...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of central Colorado, east central Colorado, and
  southeast Colorado, including the following areas, in central
  Colorado, Eastern Sawatch Range, Fremont County, Mosquito
  Range, Teller County and the Rampart Range, and Upper Arkansas
  River Valley. In east central Colorado, El Paso County. In
  southeast Colorado, Baca County, Bent County, Crowley County,
  Eastern Kiowa County, Eastern Las Animas County, Huerfano
  County, Northern Sangre De Cristo Mountains, Otero County,
  Prowers County, Pueblo County, Southern Sangre De Cristo
  Mountains, Western Kiowa County, Western Las Animas County,
  Wet Mountain Valley, and Wet Mountains.

* Through late tonight

* Monsoon moisture and an upper level disturbance will result in
  another round of afternoon and evening thunderstorms capable of
  producing heavy rain across and near the mountains.
  Thunderstorms will spread eastward and persist into the
  overnight hours across the southeast plains, particularly to the
  north of highway 50.

* Mud and ash flows will be possible in and near burn scars
  should heavy rainfall impact these areas. Quick runoff from
  heavy rains which may occur across urban areas or areas with
  saturated soil conditions may quickly result in flooded
  roadways, creeks and drainages.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
