Satellite and radar show tropical moisture from Bonnie off the East coast. Next front swinging through the Plains will reach the East by late week. After that....warming west and cooling east.
Map is for tonight: front moving into Midwest....cooler high pressure over Northeast...and out west.
Above - rainfall for next 7 days......Carolinas and Texas get the brunt of rain.....upper Midwest to Great Lakes will also see heavy rains.
Temps over the next week will be above in West....Below Great Lakes to Southern Plains. That trend will spread east.
Map above is upper air map for early next week. Jet stream drops south in the East with cooler air....while just the opposite out west.
Storms in Mississippi Valley and Gulf seem to be moving quickly and should affect the East Coast Saturday. Map on left is valid for Saturday night - showing Gulf storm already off Mid Atlantic Coast and it will develop into a gale center in the Ocean.
Amounts of rain expected over the weekend.
Expected high temperature for next Wednesday. Warming east...cooling down west. Have a nice weekend....be back in one week.
No organized areas of rainfall....but storms will gather along the East and whether or not they affect the coast or stay offshore will be the forecast problem into next week.
Low pressure in the Gulf States will likely move northeast and bring rain as far north as New England this weekend.
As you can see by this map....most of the heavy rain stays offshore. This may happen again by Wednesday of next week.
Below...the various models and their take on where this storm will be on Sunday. Most of them ...keeping it closer to the coast.
Stalled front in south will cause rain from SO. Plains to Mid Atlantic. The rain will get pushed south for a short time before heading north again this weekend.
Map for tonight shows the southern third of the Nation to continue soggy. Below...today's severe outlook...mainly for Texas.
Lastly - map for this Saturday. Storm in Ohio Valley and out West to bring much of the Nation...wet and unsettled weather.
Satellite showing a blockey pattern with moisture being forced to the south. Black indicates dry air. Colors represent moisture.Plenty of rain for So.Plains and Texas. Below...outlook for severe weather today....once again...Southern Plains.
Map above for this evening. The area of rain from the Rockies to Ohio/Tenn Valleys and south will change very little over the next few days.

We'll track it and watch it. Be safe.
Cold front #1 moves across the East today with showers.
Cold front #2 - Dakotas....heads east and is off the east coast

Finally...below...temperatures for early Monday morning: more like early April than May. Be safe.
System in central U.S. heads east with showers and storms then followed by wind and chilly weather this weekend from Great Lakes to Northeast.
Today's severe weather threat in dark green. Below...today's weather map...showing the system resulting in that threat.
Sunday's daytime temperatures .....light blue is only in the 40s....where some wet snow could fall. GFS Model below - shows thinking for Sunday. Shaded areas of blue indicate wintry precip. Yikes.....May 15th ?
Map below shows the upper air flow: trof in east is culprit for the chilly weather. Be safe.
Today's severe weather threat - dark green to tan....covering a large part of the Nation. Below....current satellite showing several areas of moisture.
Map for this evening showing stormy weather Center Nation....moving east. In back of it...a shot of chilly windy air
by Sunday in the East.
Map above showing wind for Sunday from Great Lakes to Northeast and Mid Atlantic. Below....map showing daytime temperatures for Sunday.....more like March in the North.
Satellite shows the storm weather in the Plains and Midwest....and this time...both coasts are fair....quite the opposite of last week.
Today's severe outlook....dark green to tan.....tan being the greatest threat for portions of Okl., Tex., Ark.
Rainfall amounts for the next 7 days above......daytime temperatures below....most of which (blue) below the average.
Weather map for this evening....worst weather center nation.
Today's upper air pattern showing 2 deep storms on each coast..with ridge in center...(warm)....creating the symbol or letter for Omega....thus Omega block.
You can see the low along the east coast just spinning away...as well as the one off So. California.
Close up satellite showing this storm along the coast.
Below...today's weather map.
Below....map for Sunday - Mother's Day. Wherever you see green....that's cloudy and some rain.....otherwise thumbs up.
This satellite shows a vigorous upper low spinning through the Ohio Valley. As it does...it's sending moisture up along the east coast and it will cause more rain in Mid Atlantic and Northeast through end of week.
Map above is for Thursday evening. Western states continue wet. Central Nice. Storm off New England moves offshore...but low near No.Carolina coast was the storm in Ohio Valley this morning that will deepen and move northeast with wind and rain there on Friday. Below...the various maps and models for this Sunday - Mother's Day. Most models agree that another trof will move across the Northeast with showers...and wind.
The block continues giving the west coast clouds and showers ..same for The East. Central...great.
Map for this evening showing how the block translates to wet weather on the ground. Below...a look at the models for this Sunday, Mother's Day. Weather is not bad with the exception of the Northeast...where it will be cooler than normal and still the chance of showers. Better weather is slated for the nation...as a whole next week. Be safe.
Satellite shows the block well in the Pacific: notice the moisture stream south to north almost to Alaska...then diving down the Canadian Rockies. Moisture then sails out of the Gulf to the East Coast. This pattern holding much of the week...so what you see is what you get until further notice.
Down on the ground...this is what the map looks like and don't look for many changes all too soon. In time..fronts will drop down from Canada in the East and will only serve to keep the weather the same.
Above...the upper air pattern this week: large upper low in Southwest and another Mid Atlantic...with a ridge over the Plains. The upper lows associated with cool - wet weather.
Above...amounts of rain expected over the next 7 days. Keep dry...stay safe.
We'll have daily weather discussions, talking about major systems on the horizon along with anything noteworthy that pops up on our radar.
