Meteorology Monday: May 7 - May 13

Explorer A

Another active thunderstorm week is expected as the system that has been generating the thunderstorms in the central part of the country pushes eastward into the New England, Mid Atlantic, and Southeast regions. 

For the beginning of the week (Tue-Wed), the Midwest and Great Lakes will take a break from the thunderstorms, but some thunderstorms could return Friday into Saturday.  Also, rain showers and thunderstorms are likely for much of Texas this week and then again this weekend, bringing some much-needed rain to the area.   The western part of the country looks to be dry this week.

Here are this week’s weather highlights:

  • Scattered thunderstorms across the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions are expected to stick around for the first part of the work week.  Occasional rounds of showers and storms are likely Tuesday through about Wednesday, and possibly into Thursday, from PHL down towards the BWI-DC area, with some heavy rain possible. 
  • It looks promising that Texas could see some much needed rain as a couple of systems move through this week.  The first round of showers and thunderstorms will be Monday through Tuesday night, with more precipitation expected late week into the weekend, including at AUS, SAT, HOU, and DAL.
  • DEN has a chance for some isolated showers and thunderstorms late week and through next weekend.
  • The Northeast up into New England, including the NYC metro area, will likely be soggy with a good amount of rain expected from Tuesday through about Thursday.
  • Nice weather for much of the Pacific Northwest, Rockies, and Southwest.  However, Southern California is expected to have daily marine layer fog moving onshore in the mornings. 
Have a wonderful week!
