1. The severe weather today and tomorrow will remain in the Midwest and lower Great Lakes. As the trough digs into the Midwest the next 24 hours, storms will develop over the Midwest and some of the clusters of storms will produce damaging winds and flooding rains. That trough will eventually dig into the East Thursday, resulting in big thunderstorms along the I-95 corridor in the afternoon,
2. As the second trough digs into the Mississippi Valley this weekend, a corridor of tropical moisture will set up between the Atlantic Ridge and the trough in the Mississippi Valley. As you know, I remain concerned for flooding along the Delaware River due to the fact that the river is already running high and the models are showing the heaviest rains setting up along the river per the maps below. Now, I am not saying massive flooding is coming, what I am saying is the river is running high and additional heavy rainfall may take the river higher and even over the banks. I think the bigger concern will come later in the summer when, after a wet period from July into August, a tropical storm runs north and brings heavy rains to the Northeast.
The tropics remain the big problem in the weather. Ana could hit the Pacific Northwest, Gonzalo will hit Europe, and development may occur in the Gulf.
Bermuda will get hit hard today by Gonzalo while in the Pacific, Ana will go south of Hawaii with only minimal impacts.
Heavy rains will affect the Northeast...Ana will bring some impacts to Hawaii...Gonzalo will be a disaster to Bermuda.
The band of heavy rains and storms will continue to move east and could get severe in New England.
Storms along the front will remain heavy to severe through Thursday.
A storm will produce a band of severe storms through Tuesday.
