US Short Term Forecast to May 29

...More showers and thunderstorms for the Plains and Midwest with heavy rains and severe weather possible...

...After a chilly weekend...temperatures and dew points will be on the
rise across the Northeast and northern Mid-Atlantic states...

...Unsettled weather will continue across the Northwest...

Showers and thunderstorms will remain in the forecast over much of the Nation's mid-section. The greatest chance for any organized activity should be across the Northern Plains...Upper Midwest...and Ohio Valley...where weak impulses of energy rippling through an upper ridge will help ignite convection along/to the north of a warm front slowly surging north through the region.

During the afternoon hours...convection could also fire up to the east of a dry line pushing out through the Southern/Central High Plains. A warm and juicy airmass in place underneath the upper ridge will allow for developing storms to contain heavy...potentially flooding... downpours and severe weather. Please refer to the Storm Prediction Center for the latest information on severe weather.

Conditions will continue to clear out over the Northeast as a surface low off the New England coast lifts into southeast Canada. A few lingering showers will be possible over northern Maine on Monday... but the majority of the Northeast and northern Mid-Atlantic states will be sunny and dry for the Memorial Day holiday. By Tuesday... temperatures and dew points will be on the rise across the region as the upper ridge over the Central U.S. slides eastward.

Out amplifying upper trough will keep weather unsettled from the Pacific coast to the Northern/Central Rockies. Much of the shower activity will be scattered and mostly terrain driven. However approaching Pacific front will bring some steady rains into the Pacific Northwest and northern California Sunday night into Monday.
