    Major Severe Weather Outbreak Next Week after a Weekend of Storms

    6/17/2011, 6:31:35 AM

    "Major Outbreak of Severe Weather Next Week"

    In the video, I talked about eight days of severe weather. That's right, eight days, starting today, of severe weather, with next week being a very active period of severe storms.

    Through this weekend, storms will be centered across the Plains and Ohio Valley with wind damage and hail the primary impacts.

    The upper-level low coming out of the Rockies late Sunday will be the focal point of severe storms with potential for tornadoes. The system will be slow moving, so it will take most of the week for the storm to finally clear the country. Each day next week, we will see severe storms with potential for tornadoes given the shear from the upper-level low. The only thing going against a big outbreak is the weakness of the jet stream. In April and May, the jet was very strong, but now the jet is weaker, so the result will be weaker tornadoes, if they occur.
