I didn't change the maps for the severe weather outbreak starting Friday and lasting through Saturday night. I do think that Saturday afternoon into the night, the weather might be rather nasty with storms producing extensive wind damage and tornadoes. it really depends on whether we have a single squall line develop or supercell storms. The NAM/WRF simulated radar shows more of a multi-line structure by Saturday afternoon which would lead me to believe there will be supercell storms with the potential for tornadoes.
In any case, it looks nasty for Saturday, especially in the Iowa and Missouri zone.
Lastly, another big storm dives in next week and we could have yet another outbreak of severe storms in the Midwest and Ohio Valley.
Stormy across the Northern Plains this weekend. Heat stays in trhe East despite the backdoor cold front.
Pattern this weekend will feature a storm in the northern Plains and up-and-down heat in the East.
The moonson will bring some nasty weather to the Southwestern part of the country.
Watching the system in the Gulf of Mexico for development. Probably a small chance.
Heat builds into the East while the rain continues for the Pacific Northwest.
