I posted my map below for severe weather coming up Friday and Saturday. The upper-level low coming into California will eject into the Plains this weekend and, given the rise in dew points and temperatures, we should see an outbreak of severe storms. We are coming into the second severe weather season, so it only makes sense that we will see an outbreak of severe storms in this pattern.
Heavy storms will hit parts of New Mexico with heavy rains and gusty winds.
The band of heavy rains should end tonight, allowing drier weather to move in.
Heavy rains associated with the upper-level low will hit the Carolinas into Virginia. Some areas could get over a foot of rain by Monday!
The heavy rains are still coming and someone is going to have up to a foot of rain and flooding.
Major problems the end of the week and weekend as another round of flooding rains occur and Joaquin could impact the mid-Atlantic.
The Northeast will be the center for flooding rains through the weekend. Joaquin could bring troubles late in the weekend.
