    Tropics to Come Alive. Heavy Storms Again Today

    June 12, 2012; 8:40 AM ET


    1. The tropics should start to get active by this weekend and the map below shows the areas where the development may occur. Interestingly, I put a low probability area along the East Coast because the operational models show a small storm developing along the front again. As you know, we had two storms develop along the East Coast, the first one in a similar weather pattern as we have now. The NAM is bullish on a storm developing, but whether it becomes a named storm or not, or even develops, remains to be seen. The Yucatan is where we really need to watch for development late in the weekend and next week.

    2. Severe weather today will be confined to the High Plains, Texas and Louisiana. The impacts today will be high winds and large hail in the storms. Some storms will also cause flash flooding.
