There is plenty going on in the weather the next couple of days.
First, the corn disaster in the Midwest is extremely bad. As consumers, we will most likely see higher prices come this fall considering that corn of some form is in most of what we consume. Gas prices will probably be affected somewhat since 10-15% of the gas is ethanol. The situation in the Midwest due to the drought is very bad, and it does not appear any major relief is coming anytime soon. The short-term drought map below shows you what areas are being hit the hardest from the drought.
Fabio is heading north and weakening, but what is left of the storm will go in somewhere across southern California. I am going to track Fabio all the way to the Great Lakes as shown on the map below of the combo model tracks. Sometimes these systems are trackable features that produce showers and thunderstorms each day as they moves along the jet stream.
The heat in the Northeast, Great Lakes and mid-Atlantic will break with heavy to severe thunderstorms today and tomorrow. Some of the storms will produce locally damaging winds.
A severe weather pattern develops next week in the Plains. Storms possible in the mid-Atlantic.
Nasty weather coming to the Plains next week and beyond.
Snow for Minneapolis on north today into tonight. A severe weather pattern occurs next week.
Snow will hit the Northeast today then the Upper Midwest Wednesday.
Snow across the Great Lakes and Heavy Storms across the South and East Coast.
The weather will become active this weekend as snow hits the Rockies and severe storms hit the Plains.
