Severe Storms Northern Great Lakes Today; Norbert to Bring Flooding This Weekend

September 4, 2014; 10:38 AM ET

Severe storms with wind gusts over 60 mph will continue across the northern Great Lakes today. Damage to trees and homes will occur as the storms move 50 mph to the east affecting northern Wisconsin and northern Michigan. The rare part of this event are the winds occurring behind the thunderstorms. Winds are gusting to 50 mph in the wake of the low which is causing trees and powerlines to come down.

Hurricane Norbert will move slowly north and may move into southern California by Monday. Tropical moisture from Norbert will move into Arizona and New Mexico, feeding heavy thunderstorms and the risk of flash flooding this weekend into early next week. The battle between the GFS and ECMWF is on between who is correct in regards to whether Norbert goes into southern California or not.

The pattern the rest of the month becomes active with heavy rain events, severe weather and possible tropical hits. Looks like the snow starts in early October. Yea!
