An active week is in store in terms of weather, with ongoing scattered to numerous showers and T-storms expected across a large portion of the country.  A cold front located across the central U.S. will be the main source for weather this week; with rain showers and T-storms extending from the upper Midwest south into Oklahoma and north Texas, moving east toward the east coast by mid-week.  Though no major, organized severe weather outbreaks are anticipated this week, pockets of stronger T-storms will be likely across the central and southern Plains. 

Here are this week’s weather highlights:

  • Periods of scattered to numerous showers and T-storms will continue early this week across much of the Southeast (BHM, JAN, ATL, GSP, CLT) and northern Florida (ECP, PNS, JAX). Drier conditions are anticipated across the Southeast by mid-week, with ongoing, widely scattered T-storms expected across much of Florida. 
  • Occasional, scattered showers and clusters of strong T-storms will be confined to the central and southern Plains (AMA, LBB, MAF, DAL, OKC, TUL, LIT) throughout the week, with no substantial, severe weather outbreaks expected. 
  • Heavy rain and T-storms associated with the aforementioned cold front will reach the east coast by Tuesday, with periods of moderate to heavy rain and low ceilings likely across portions of New York and New England (ALB, EWR, HPN, LGA, ISP, BDL, PVD, BOS, MHT, PWM).  A few scattered showers and low ceilings will linger into Wednesday and Thursday. 
  • Rain and T-storms are likely across the Mid-Atlantic Tuesday and Wednesday (IAD, DCA, BWI, PHL, MDT, ABE, RIC, ORF, RDU).  By Thursday, the cold front will move out of the region, and the Mid-Atlantic will begin to dry out with scattered showers mostly confined to the extreme coastal sections.
  • As expected this time of the year, daily chances for isolated T-storms are expected across DEN this week, mainly in the late afternoon/evening timeframe.  The main threat from nearby T-storms will be periodic, gusty winds from strong T-storm outflows.

Have a great week!
