Excessive Heat Warnings and Heat Advisory extend from parts of the Texas Panhandle to the Middle Mississippi/Ohio Valleys and parts of the Great Lakes as well as into parts of the Northeast southward to the Southern Mid-Atlantic as a huge dome of high pressure extends from parts of the Southwest eastward to the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic. Daytime temperatures in the mid to upper 90s combined with high humidity will result in heat indices as high as 115 for some. Overnight low temperatures will provide little relief as temperatures struggle to get below the upper 70s or even low 80s in some parts!
Record high temperatures are in the forecast for parts of the Great Lakes & Ohio Valley extending eastward into the Mid-Atlantic on Saturday into Sunday.
A slow moving cold front crossing the Great Lakes into the Central Plains will initiate convection over this region, highlighting a slight to moderate risk for severe thunderstorms today. The primary threat from these storms will be damaging wind gusts, heavy rainfall, and hail especially across parts of northern Wisconsin and Michigan. The chance for an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. These showers and thunderstorms will extend from parts of the Mid-Atlantic to the Middle Mississippi Valley by Monday morning bringing much needed relief to the heat wave currently gripping much of the eastern half of the country.
Satellite-radar shows absence of clouds and that means HOT ! Storms over Great Lakes...head east and weaken. Much of the Eastern halkf of the Nation will have a dangerous heatwave this weekend...coming to a crashing finish early next week. Be sure to follow heatwave guidelines and be safe. Below - today's risk of severe weather in dark green and yellow.

Satellite + radar above shows a front in Northeast with showers and thunderstorms. More storms Upper Midwest otherwise much of the Nation under heat advisories. Below - high temperatures expected on Sunday.
Below - today's risk of severe weather is dark green and yellow....followed by snapshot weather for Friday. Remember...keep cool...and safe.
Above...projected temperatures for this Saturday. 100 + actual temperatures from Southwest to Northeast...and when combined with oppressive humidity...it will feel like 110 to 120 F. Below - satellite and radar showing showers and storms headed east from Great Lakes into Northeast today and Thursday...some of which will be severe.

Below - animated maps for the next couple...followed by snapshot weather for Thursday. We will be posting heatwave safety rules tomorrow. Be safe.
The remains of Barry is Missouri and that combined with a cold front in the Great Lakes is producing showers and storms Midwest and Ohio Valley. Another front producing storms into the Plains. Below - today's risk of severe thunderstorms in dark green and yellow.
Below - animated maps for the next couple followed by rainfall into the weekend. The current pattern not only favors above norm temps...but a strong heatwave which will poke into The Northeast this weekend bringing temps to 100 in some of the major cities.
Below - snapshot weather for Wednesday - followed by projected high temps for Saturday. Anywhere in red has the potential of reaching 100.
Barry has 50-55 mph winds but not very well organized. Track is across Louisiana but may not make hurricane status. Plenty of wind...rain...severe weather and surf. Below - model tracks followed by satellite & radar.
Below - animated maps into weekend followed by today's threat of severe weather in green and yellow.
below - satellite map track a second tropical disturbance in south central Atlantic followed by snapshot weather for Saturday. Be safe.
Above - satellite picture showing tropical disturbance in Gulf which will become a depression today and then Tropical Storm Barry or even a Hurricane Friday into the weekend. Following...hurricane center track followed by tracks of different models. Most agree...Louisiana....and since system is moving slowly....very heavy rainfall likely...over 10".
Below - today's risk of severe weather - dark green and yellow - followed by animated maps....and rainfall into MOnday.
Below - satellite + radar showing cold front moving out of Gt. Lakes and into East today with showers and storms. Snapshot weather for Friday.
A tropical disturbance forming in the Gulf will likely become either Tropical Storm or Hurricane Barry by this weekend. The storm will likely take aim on Louisiana. Below - another satellite picture and the tracks by different models.
Meanwhile a cold front in the Plains will result in severe weather which will head east and affect the Eastern Seaboard later Thursday into Friday.
Below - radar + satellite pix - followed by severe outlook for today.
Following maps - animated - showing track of tropical system - amounts of rainfall through SUnday......over 7" across parts of the Gulf States.
Lastly -snapshot weather for Thursday.
Above..satellite + radar showers storms in No. Plains. That front will head to the East Coast by Friday. Showers and storms in Southeast...sink south and will likely become a tropical depression in Gulf Of Mexico.Below - severe risk of severe weather today in dark green and yellow.
Below - animated maps for next 2 days showing that tropical system in Gulf...followed by rainfall into weekend which also shows the heaviest rain along the Gulf Coast.
Lastly - map showing best bet for tropical formation followed by snapshot weather for Wednesday. Be safe.
Showers and thunderstorms Northern Plains....Great Lakes...Southeast. Storms in Plains head east to affect Northeast and Mid Atlantic Saturday and then the SOutheast next week. Below - today's threat of severe weather in dark green and yellow.
Below - track of Hurricane Barbara. She has 100 mph winds but is likely to weaken before approaching Hawaii early next week. Following that...animated maps for the next 2 days.
Following...rain predictions into mid next week. Heaviest expected over the southeast with a stalled front which could mean trouble down the road. After that...a snapshot of weather for your Saturday. Have a nice weekend and be safe.
