    Severe Weather Ohio to Missouri Today, Northeast to Virginia Saturday

    9/07/2012, 6:10:49 AM


    Severe weather will be the big story today and Saturday. The map below shows the area of severe weather for today and Saturday, and if you notice, I put in an area of TS4 storms because of the wind damage and tornado potential in both areas. In most cases, the impacts will be gusty winds and hail as the storms blow on through any particular area.

    The front that is coming through will be followed be a big fall high. For many people in the East, this means a spell of very nice weather next week. However, an old rule of thumb, big highs that come down in the fall can add spin to a stalled front in the tropics and cause development of a storm. That might be the case late next week somewhere in the Gulf of Mexico or Southeast coast.

    Speaking of the Gulf of Mexico, a system in the Gulf is having a hard time developing, but it will eventually be pushed across Florida as the front comes through the later part of the weekend. That system will cause locally heavy rains in central and northern Florida Sunday into early Monday.
