This is a hemispheric satellite pix which kind of shows you how jet streams are steering our weather. Plume of moisture in Ohio Valley will affect eastern half of Nation thru Friday with showers. Moisture in Pacific Northwest could produce some showers.....from west to east otherwise the heaviest rains will continue over the Gulf States right into weekend.
Risk of severe weather today in sw Nebraska and western Kansas. Dark green areas are borderline.
This is Japan model for this coming Monday. Focus on moisture which blankets the eastern half of the Nation. This should be a widespread rain event.
This map is for next Tuesday. The storm along the Virginia Capes and cold front over Appalachians will be the instigators in all the rain . Behind these systems...it cools down. Below...high temperatures expected for next Wednesday. Be safe.
