Two Days of Storms as Heat Breaks to Wet Pattern

July 18, 2013; 9:40 AM ET


1. The area of focus of the severe storms on Friday will be from Michigan into Ontario. That area will get some significant damage winds with the storms. This is due to the position of the front with the jet aloft and the low-level jet at 5,000 feet. That coincides across that area by afternoon.

2. The lee trough will develop Saturday, so what is left of the Ontario and Michigan storms will jump into the trough and affect the I-95 cities from Philly to Boston on Saturday afternoon. Another area to watch on Saturday will be Ohio and Indiana where storms will settle south with the front to produce locally damaging winds.

3. It would appear we are going into a wetter weather pattern in the East again next week and the week after. So say goodbye to the heat and hello rain. That does not mean it will not get hot out, but any heat will be brief to occur. Humidity will be up again, and that will only fuel the storms.
