DISCUSSION: As a strengthening low-pressure system currently positioned over the Great Lakes region of the United States slowly slides eastward over the next 24 to 48 hours, very heavy and prolonged rainfall will move into parts of the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast corridor. As heavy showers and embedded thunderstorms move through the aforementioned regions throughout the day tomorrow, flooding and/or flash flooding conditions may be possible; particularly in lower-lying areas. In addition, there is reasonable threat for some of more discrete (i.e., convection isolated from the larger rain shield) convective cells to generate damaging hail as well as strong/damaging winds!

DISCUSSION: As an area of disturbed weather continues to become increasingly more organized over the next couple of days, there will be an increasing threat for a tropical low to threaten the Gulf Coast region of the United States (i.e., specifically Western portions of Florida). The primary threat at this time in association with this projected tropical low appears to be heavy rainfall, gusty winds, and even a few isolated tornadoes and/or waterspouts.

DISCUSSION: As of this point in the year 2016, there have a number of impressive tornadic days with many impressive tornadoes. However, in looking across the entire nation, one gets a deeper appreciation for the larger-scale distribution for the number of overall tornado warnings which have been issued thus far in the year 2016! Attached below is a neat graphic courtesy of the National Weather Service office in Dodge City, Kansas which breaks down the number of tornado warnings which have been issued so far in 2016 from each individual office within their county warning area!

DISCUSSION: As strong high pressure continues to build into parts of the Southwestern United States through the course of today, incredibly hot and even oppressively hot temperatures will be the theme as strong diurnal heating takes effect! As a result, the National Weather Service office in Flagstaff, Arizona has already issued Excessive Heat Warnings shown in the graphic below for many areas located beneath 4,000 ft. As a result of this extreme heat expected, be sure to wear lightly-colored clothing and drink plenty of water to remain hydrated amidst the extreme heat!

For more than a week, computer models have suggested a developing rainy period for south Florida during the first part of June. Now, a tropical weather system may enter the equation. Computer models and National Hurricane Center guidance suggest that a tropical low is likely to develop…To read the full story, click here.
DISCUSSION: As a strengthening low-pressure system heads towards the East Coast (i.e., specifically towards the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions), there will be an increasing threat for strong to severe thunderstorms which may be capable of producing heavy rainf, strong to damaging winds, large hail, and even a few isolated tornadoes in spots. Though as mentioned in the graphic below courtesy of the National Weather Service Eastern Region Headquarters office's forecast graphic, the greatest threat appears to be centered in and around the Mid-Atlantic region. This larger threat for more pronounced thunderstorm activity can be linked to the likely presence of greater buoyancy and convective instability in place further south from the Northeast region. There will be further updates both your local National Weather Service office(s) on this pending situation as we get closer to Sunday and Monday . so be sure to stay tuned right here at the Global Weather Climate Center for more updates/information as we get closer to Sunday and Monday!
