Tropical Storm Fay, currently located off the Mid-Atlantic coast will
continue to move northward the next few days. Impacts from this system
will extend across parts of the Mid-Atlantic into Southern New England
including moderate to locally heavy rainfall and flash flood potential
near and north of its track, gusty winds, and rough surf along the coast.
Please refer to the NHC for the latest on this system.
In the north-central U.S., one frontal system shifting across the Upper
Midwest states today will continue to bring showers and thunderstorms to
this region. Both WPC and SPC highlight the potential for flash flooding
and strong to severe thunderstorms through tonight. Expect showers and
storms to move into the Ohio Valley and Southern states tomorrow
associated with this system.
A second frontal boundary should eject out of the Rockies on Friday, into
a warm and juicy airmass. Showers and storms will develop along and ahead
of the system. SPC highlights a slight to enhanced risk for severe weather
tomorrow afternoon and evening across much of the Northern Plains.
Moderate to locally heavy rainfall may also accompany any developing
Expansive upper level ridging will keep hot and above normal temperatures
in place across much of the South. Temperatures over western Texas and
eastern New Mexico may approach records for at least the next two days
(and likely beyond). The Desert Southwest will be hotter still, with
afternoon temperatures soaring into the 110s each afternoon. Above normal
temperatures across Southern Florida may also be near record values in a
few locations. Above to much above normal temperatures are also expected
to expand into the lower Great Lakes and interior New England as well.
Heat advisories are in effect across much of the Southern High
Plains/Texas as well as the lower Great Lakes, with excessive heat
warnings spanning the Desert Southwest.
