Extended NWS Forecast

Vanderbilt Baseball plays Louisville tonight at 7 PM (ESPN 2) at the College World Series in Omaha. Check out where the Storm Prediction Center placed its Moderate Risk for severe weather today (actually, for later tonight):

Omaha may see something like this tonight (from 2011):

Very large hail and damaging straight-line winds are likely inside the storm line. A tornado is also possible, especially if any supercells fire ahead of the line.

There’s a decent chance the storms will hold off until after midnight, long after the game is over. That’s what the Hi-Res NAM model, below, thinks:

That’s also my bet. However, basing ETAs on the NAM isn’t a good idea. The short range models are hinting at a possible earlier arrival, but for now, I think the game will be played.

Know what you’ll do tonight if there’s a warning. Find a local TV station and listen to what they say. Follow @NWSOmaha on Twitter.

If you drove to Omaha, start thinking now about places to shelter your car from hail damage. Hail in Nashville is usually pea sized, and only occasionally gets to 1″. Hail in Omaha is a different level of destruction.

So, basically, be aware and #AnchorDown.
