Irma remains well offshore this morning as a strong hurricane. I’ll have a full update on that storm this afternoon. In the meantime, here are the three things to know about today’s weather in the US.
- SEVERE STORMS will develop ahead of a cold front that will be moving into the Ohio Valley. Damaging winds will be the primary threat with these storms as they organize into a line and move east.
- HEAT will relax its grip on California as high pressure weakens slightly. As forecast by the Swiss Super HD model, temps above 100 will be limited to the usual hotspots of the Central Valley while coastal regions will see much more reasonable temperatures.
- THE MONSOON will continue today across the Desert Southwest. The remnants of Lidia will continue to provide a little extra enhancement both in terms of coverage and intensity of the afternoon’s storms.
Elsewhere across the US, generally quiet weather is expected. For more information on your local forecast, head on over to weather.us.

I’ll have another update on Irma this afternoon and will be back with another weather summary this time tomorrow.
