The weather has just gone insane with the pattern that will evolve next week across the eastern half of the country. While I enjoy the meteorology of the events that will unfold, knowing that there is potential for loss of life in the pattern coming is not comforting to me. When I said that I expect up to 300 tornadoes in the next two weeks, I was not kidding. Given the pattern next week, I can see 100-200 tornadoes over a four-day period starting Monday, as I have outlined on the map below.
There is no doubt that the ingredients for the severe weather outbreak will be in place next week. We will have a strong jet stream, plenty of heat and humidity, and at least two potent storms. People living in the area that I am showing on the map should be aware of the extreme weather coming next week.
Severe weather will rip across the Northern Plains today. Parts of Canada may see tornadoes.
Severe weather will be the focus the next couple of days. Tornadoes may hit western Canada.
Heavy thunderstorms to bring some locally damaging wind gusts. Tornadoes for Canada! It's the season for them!
A cluster of thunderstorms or perhaps an Derecho will produce a swath of damaging wind gusts across North Dakota into northern Minnesota.
The rains are underway across Texas so watch the flooding. Sniffing out a storm development along the East Coast.
Storms will develop over the Southern Plains and will bring damaging winds and flash flooding rains.
