***Hot and humid for the Eastern U.S. through Saturday***
***More bad weather from Texas to the Ohio Valley***
***Showers from the Northern Rockies to the Dakotas***
With the Bermuda high anchored offshore, hot and humid weather will continue for the East Coast and Southeast U.S. for the next few days.
The greatest temperature anomalies will be in the Northeast, where afternoon high temperatures will likely be on the order of 15 to 20 degrees above normal for this time of year. Widespread upper 80s and lower 90s can be expected, along with dewpoints well into the 60s.
Over the Midwest and extending into Texas, more stormy weather is in store through the end of the week as a slow moving cold front intersects a moist airmass ahead of it. Multiple rounds of thunderstorm activity are expected along and ahead of the front, and many of these storms could be strong or severe. Locally heavy rainfall is also a good possibility.
Another area of organized rainfall is likely for the western Great Lakes
near the main surface low.
Elsewhere, an upper level low will move slowly across the northern Plains and the Upper Midwest over the next two days. Light to moderate rainfall is expected across much of these areas, along with considerably cooler temperatures.
Easterly onshore flow across South Florida will keep numerous showers and thunderstorms going into the weekend, with rainfall
totals of one to three inches possible.
