The severe outbreak is underway, so far there are not too many reports but the worst may be tonight. Parts of the Midwest south into the Tennessee Valley should be hit tomorrow followed by a few strong storms along the East Coast on Monday.
Meanwhile, we have two tropical systems to watch, Rafael in the Atlantic and Paul in the Pacific.
I am @AccuFrank on Twitter.
Extreme rain through this weekend will cause flooding in the Carolinas; it's not really nice anywhere near the East Coast. Fortunately, it's nice elsewhere for now. The tropics remain active.
While it looks likely at this point that Joaquin goes out to sea, we still have a setup for parts of the Southeast to see some extreme rainfall.
Several separate storm systems will affect the South over the next several day with most of the action in the Southeast.
A big surge of moisture and perhaps a depression or storm will be heading into the Southeast early next week, while most areas west of the Mississippi remain warm and almost summery.
A storm over the East Coast is causing a variety of problems while the next area of interest will be the Gulf of Mexico.
This will be the last post for a while as I am headed down there to live through my forecast for a change. There's plenty of stuff to watch for while I'm gone.
