A very warm week lies ahead for most of the nation, and while it will start out rather wet in some areas, the latter part of the week into next weekend should be dry for much of the country. A slow moving system will be bringing widespread rain with some embedded thunderstorms to most of the East Coast through mid-week.
Further south, thunderstorms will be scattered across the Southeast, Florida, and back across south and west Texas, as well. Meanwhile, mostly dry and warm to hot across the west, with PHX seeing several straight days with 100+ degree temperatures this week.
Here are this week’s weather highlights:
- Widespread showers with some embedded thunderstorms will be common from the Mid Atlantic, up to the PHL and NYC area, and into New England for the early to the mid-part of the week. Some heavy rain totals will be likely as this will be a slow moving system (BWI, IAD, DCA, PHL, LGA, EWR, ISP, HPN, ABE, MDT, PVD, BDL, BOS, MHT, ALB, and PWM). The good news is that as ugly as the beginning of the week looks in these regions, it should dramatically improve and be very nice from Thursday through next weekend.
- Scattered showers and thunderstorms in south Texas on into the Southeast, mainly early to mid-week (AUS, SAT, HOU, CRP, HRL, ATL, GSP, RDU, CLT, and CHS), with mostly dry and mild weather expected late week and next weekend.
- While coverage is not expected to be that high, there will be a couple of chances for some isolated strong thunderstorms in the upper Midwest and Great Lakes (including at MDW, MKE, GRR, FNT, and DTW), on about Tuesday, Thursday, and possibly next weekend. Even with these chances, it appears much of the week will be dry in these regions.
- Somewhat active in Florida this week, with scattered coverage of thunderstorms expected on most days (MCO, TPA, RSW, SRQ, FLL, PBI, MIA, EYW, JAX, ECP, PNS).
- Hot to start the week in the Southwest, with PHX, TUS, and LAS at or above 100 degrees for high temps through mid-week.
Have a terrific week!
