    Weekend Severe Weather Goes Into Monday and Tuesday

    6/27/2014, 7:17:45 AM


    Significant Outbreak of Severe Weather Into Next Week

    Severe weather will develop in the Plains this weekend and spread east into the western Great Lakes Monday, then the Eastern Great Lakes Tuesday. This will be a significant outbreak of severe weather, especially Sunday and Monday.

    The impacts of the storms will be damaging winds, hail, heavy rains and tornadoes. We could see significant tornadoes Sunday and Monday. I remain impressed for the severe weather Sunday and Monday from Iowa into Michigan. The low-level jet on Monday will be cranking at 55 knots right into Illinois, supporting the severe weather.

    What I am not sure about is the distribution of the storms. It would seem that a MCS will develop in Iowa and head east-northeast into Wisconsin and Michigan. With the dew points so high, I would not be surprised to see a derecho develop out of the MCS. Other supercell storms may develop and produce tornadoes.
