Strong Thunderstorms Possible In The Four Corners And In The Northern Plains

Hello everyone!

Generally quiet weather continues today across the US, though there are two areas to watch for some strong to severe thunderstorm development. Here are the three things you need to know about today’s weather across the US:

  1. SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS are expected to develop in the four corners region of the desert southwest today as a strong upper level low rolls into the area. Storms will get going fairly early in the day due to strong dynamics associated with the ULL, and gusty winds will be the main threat along with heavy rain and lightning.
  2. STRONG THUNDERSTORMS will develop in parts of the northern plains today as a weak area of low pressure moves through South Dakota. Gusty winds and small hail could be threats in some of the strongest cells.
  3. IRMA’s remnants continue to drift through the northeast today. They’ll bring scattered showers and thunderstorms to parts of the Northeast and Mid Atlantic today. Due to the lack of energy associated with the system, little to no severe weather is expected.

Meanwhile in the tropics, there have been some important shifts to Jose’s track. I’ll have an update detailing those tonight including why my initial forecast might not be such a sure bet anymore.
