The focus of the nasty weather today will be in Colorado and the Texas Panhandle where the front is dropping south along the Front Range and the upper-level low is coming out of the southwest. The two will combine to produce rains and heavy storms across southern Colorado into New Mexico and northern Texas. Some places will pick up 1-3 inches of rain, perhaps more which can cause flash flooding problems. The southern upslope areas of Colorado are most vulnerable to the flash flooding.
Eventually, the front will become stalled across central Texas, and it would appear they have the opportunity for a few days of rain and thunderstorms.
The front itself will come east and only produce showers and a few thunderstorms because the air mass is rather dry.
Next week, the NAO goes very negative so one should start watching for a lot of rain across the eastern part of the country, especially the Northeast and mid-Atlantic.
Odile will bring some serious flooding to parts of Arizona into New Mexico.
Flash flooding will be the big story across the Southwest this week.
Low over Florida will drift into the Gulf of Mexico this weekend. Slow development possible.
Snow along the Front Range of the Rockies...cold weather in the Plains.
The storms will continue to roll east with damaging winds and flash flooding. Snow along the front range of the Rockies.
Severe storms will be ahead of the cold front as it blasts across the East. Get ready for a fall!
