In this blog post, we’re going to explain the difference between isolated and scattered thunderstorms. When these words appear in your forecast, it is meant to describe the expected extent of thunderstorm activity. Unlike organized lines of storms, isolated and scattered storms affect a far smaller area so not everyone will experience them.
I'm a wife to a WEATHER DUDE. Scattered thunderstorms means it's a hit and miss storm. It could hit Toontown but miss Mainstreet. There is thunder and lightening so do take cover if it is a hit where you are. They usually don't last long so don't leave. It also means after the storms hit it gets extremely humid!! Hope that helps.
Scattered thunderstorms are thunderstorms in the 30-40% chance category. They are generally weak, widespread short thunderstorms that turn on and off due to a storm system moving over the area.
Scattered thunderstorms cover a large area and are likely to include several storm rounds. Storm chaser Adam Lucio explains that "scattered" and "isolated" descriptors have no bearing on a thunderstorm's actual intensity. These descriptions refer to the coverage a thunderstorm has over a certain area.
Most thunderstorms come and go fairly uneventfully; however, any thunderstorm can become severe, and all thunderstorms, by definition, present the danger of lightning. Thunderstorm preparedness and safety refers to taking steps before, during, and after a thunderstorm to minimize injury and damage.
