Good Tuesday, folks. Additional rounds of showers and thunderstorms are rumbling through the region today and this action looks to increase over the next few days. This also means the local flash flood threat increases as a slow-moving upper level system works through here.

Ahead of this low, a few storm clusters go up out there today with the action working from southwest to northeast. There’s even the risk for a few strong or severe storms, especially in the west. Here’s today’s Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

As the upper low gets closer to us Wednesday and Thursday, it will interact with a tremendous amount of moisture to produce more widespread showers and storms. You can see this upper low and the increase in moisture on this PWAT loop…

That’s a lot of moisture spinning around the low and is going to be enough to produce, at least, local flash flood issues.

The models are showing some hefty numbers in the next few days…

Hi Res NAM through 8am Thursday

The NAM through 8am Friday

More storms will be around this weekend as a system drops in from the northwest. That brings cooler air in here by early in the week, but the rest of next week could get rather interesting across the country. I’ve talked about the potential for a tropical system in the Gulf and the models are now seeing this well. They are also going toward a deep trough across the east at the same time…



That looks more like something later in September than June.

I leave you with you Tuesday storm tracking tools…
