***Stormy weather continues along slow moving cold front***
***Warm and humid for the East Coast this weekend***
***Wet weather for the Florida Peninsula***
A slow moving cold front will move eastward across the Midwest and
Arklatex regions on Saturday, and reach the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys by Saturday night with a widespread area of showers and thunderstorms ahead of the front. Some of the rainfall is expected to be heavy at times along with strong to severe storms.
By Sunday evening, the front will be approaching the East Coast states with widespread storms from the Southeast across the Appalachians to the Northeast. Cooler and drier weather will follow behind the front across the Plains and Midwest by later Sunday.
Ahead of the front, warm and humid conditions will continue for much of the weekend along the East Coast with temperatures remaining in the 80s and lower 90s, along with dewpoints in the 60s to near 70 degrees. Sunday will represent the last day of the early season heat before cooler relief arrives on Monday, along with a round of showers and storms.
Elsewhere, a persistent southeasterly flow of tropical moisture will bring numerous showers and thunderstorms to the Florida Peninsula throughout the weekend with locally heavy rains likely.
For the Pacific Northwest, another upper low and surface cold front will arrive by Sunday, with cooler weather and some diurnally-driven showers. And for the Desert Southwest, very hot and dry conditions are forecast with highs well above 100 degrees for the lower elevations.
