Above.....the bright colors in The Plains mean wet and storms...and that is more or less the most likely place for it to stay this weekend.
The dashed red line on the Northeast will trigger showers and thunderstorms today and again Saturday...rest of the weekend there...fine. The low in Texas Panhandle will be responsible for frequent rain and storms all weekend...some will be severe.
Above...sunshine map for Saturday. Yellow - lots of sun...grey....lots of clouds.
Above....map showing conditions for Golf or outside barb-b-cues. Yellow...good...orange ....not the best. Below...amounts of rain for early next week. Lots of wet weather will cover nearly 2/3 of The Nation. Have a nice ans safe holiday weekend.
