US Short Term Forecast to Aug 12

...Showers and thunderstorms are expected to linger in the Southeast near a stalled frontal boundary...

...Cool air from Canada is expected to move into the northern and central U.S. while heat will begin to build in the Pacific Northwest...

It appears that the weather pattern across the eastern U.S. into the Deep South will become stagnant early this week. As fine weather associated with a high pressure center slides east across the Great Lakes and New England, a frontal boundary will be stalled across the southeastern U.S. and into the Mid-Mississippi Valley with a good chance of showers and thunderstorms especially in the Carolinas. Some of the rains could be heavy at times especially in late afternoons into early evenings.

Meanwhile, cool air from Canada will advance steadily across the Plains and will begin to interact with the stalled front in the Southeast. Showers and thunderstorms ahead of the cold front are expected to move across the northern/central Plains on Sunday and into the Midwest on Monday.

Out West, some late afternoon and early evening showers and thunderstorms can be expected in portions of the interior mountains. An upper-level ridge is forecast to build into the Pacific Northwest early this week. This will keep the region dry with the return of heat in the interior. An upper-level low is lurking off the California coast but much of the Golden State should remain fine and dry through Monday.
