Yes, we are into the heart of tropical season, and for the next eight weeks, we should be busy with storm after storm.
1. Isaac should form in the Atlantic within the next 48 hours. The storm will track across the Caribbean and could become a hurricane as ti does so. Isaac could be a threat down the road for Florida or the eastern Gulf Coast, but we have plenty of time to see what happens.
2. The remains of Helene seem to be flaring up again along the Mexico coast. The front has become stalled in the Gulf of Mexico and with the high to the north, there is room for the system to spin up the next 48-60 hours. I would be concerned for heavy rains along the eastern Gulf Coast and northern Florida this week.
One of the concerns that I will convey once again is the risk for flooding in the East. It continues to get wet in the East with above-normal rainfall in many areas and it only takes one tropical system to come north and bring flooding. Not sure where that will happen yet.
Storms will be in the Plains through the weekend, and some places may see strong winds and hail.
Severe weather today may feature damaging winds and tornadoes. Look pout Virginia and The Delmarva.
The outbreak of severe weather starts late today and lasts through tonight. Starts over again in the Mid-Atlantic Thursday afternoon.
Severe weather event Wednesday into Thursday could produce numerous tornadoes and wind damage reports.
Heavy storms today and Tuesday. A cluster of storms could bring some nasty weather later Wednesday through Thursday.
Andrea continues to move north up the coast with heavy rains and tornadoes.
