1. Not too worried about the tropics right now. Storms that do develop will stay in the Atlantic and not affect the U.S. Perhaps Humberto will become our first hurricane of the season.
2. I am starting to look at the severe weather event for Thursday. The heat in the Plains will head east under the front and many areas will see the last 90-plus degree weather of the season before the front comes through. When the front does come through, we may see a significant outbreak of wind damage and hail reports. What is catching my eye is the negative tilt of the trough, which is notorious for severe weather. What is lacking is a strong low-level jet. So with that said, we'll have to watch the model runs and weather the next couple of days and see how it all unfolds.
Snow showers and cold through the Weekend..Warms up next week.
The models keep digging the storm south which means the snow showers as far south as North Carolina.
A winter blast of cold and snow will hit the Northeast Saturday. Record highs may occur today.
Ana will hit the Pacific Northwest with wind and rain, and then will bring snow and cold to the Northeast.
In the video, I look at the tropics and specifically the western Caribbean. Also, a look at Ana coming into the Pac NW Tuesday.
Coastal storm will bring heavy rains and street flooding for the Northeast. Ana is still out there and will head into the Pac Nw next week.
