A couple of points to make today.
1. The heat wave from the Midwest into the Northeast and mid-Atlantic is over. Shots of cooler weather the next two weeks will keep temperatures near to slightly below normal. At times, it may even feel like fall. This is a much different pattern from what we have seen this summer so far.
2. The tropics are dead right now, but they will get going the end of the month into September. I expect it will get busy for about a six-week stretch from late August through September. Keep in mind, storms may look innocent but blow into a hurricane once they near the coast.
3. Heavy storms today and Tuesday as shown on the map with more wind damage type storms. Tuesday could be the active day across Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, New York and Virginia with storms producing scattered wind damage reports.

The next couple of weeks will bring several big storms.
Heavy rains will hit California this weekend and cause serious flooding.
Another snowstorm will hit Maine and add to the snowcover.
A severe weather outbreak will occur Tuesday across eastern Texas and spread into Louisiana Tuesday night.
We are not done yet as the pattern will go to the extremes with at least 3 more major storms.
A storm that will last six to eight hours in any one location will produce some interesting weather.
