1. The rich tropical moisture from Miriam and now Tropical Storm Norman will spread into Texas today and this weekend. It's likely that a single identity, which would be Norman, will cross the mountains and move across southern Texas and eventually into the western Gulf of Mexico. On that path, heavy rains will spread from western Texas through the Hill Country into San Antonio and eventually Houston. I can see anywhere from 1-8 inches of rain from that system this weekend across Texas.
That feature will be a trackable feature along the Gulf Coast and eventually the Southeast with heavy rains on the Monday and Tuesday time frame. It will probably weaken coming north into the mid-Atlantic Wednesday and Thursday next week.
2. An upper-level low is still predicted over the Great Lakes this weekend, and that means more waterspouts over the eastern Great Lakes.
3. I posted a map of where snowflakes are possible late next week. With the typhoon recurving in the Pacific, that usually leads to a colder weather pattern a week to 10 days down the road. The air mass coming down next week will certainly be cold enough for upslope snow in Montana and Wyoming, with some snowflakes in the back end of the rain across the northern Plains into the northern Great Lakes.
Severe storms will be scattered about the Northeast today. Hawaii will be impacted by a tropical storm.
We are seeing the SOI values crashing again as the El Nino continues to pulse. Weather should get active again next week.
The El Nino has crashed again which means extreme weather should return soon. Check out the video.
The winds will be damaging across the northern Plains today. Expect gusts over 60 mph!
The week will start stormy for the Northern Plains with severe weather followed by high winds.
Next week will start of with severe weather and will end with a tropical threat aong the East coasty.
