1. The storm that develops along the coast will pull in enough cold air for a swath of snow across Vermont, perhaps as far south as western Massachusetts. This will be a coating to 3-inch snow event with the higher elevations having over 6 inches for snow. For late May, this is quite impressive.
2. The severe storms will stay on the High Plains through the weekend. Wednesday and Thursday next week will be the big day for an outbreak of severe storms and potential tornadoes. Through the weekend, the impacts will be damaging wind gusts, large hail and an isolated tornado.
Erika will have many issues this weekend includng tracking over the islands with big mountains.
Erika will track into the Bahamas and may intensify early next week. Track could bring it close to the U.S.
Erika's path and intensity over the next five days is the concern of the day.
We continue to watch the tropics as now we have a new storm.
The weather this week across the country will be calm, but we still have Danny out there lurking later this week.
