Helping Business Weather the Storm

National Weather Summary for Friday, July 29, 2016

by David Moran, on Jul 29, 2016 12:28:45 PM

An area of low pressure lifting along the East Coast will help produce showers and thunderstorms from the Mid Atlantic to the Northeast on Friday. A stationary front will be the focus for the development of thunderstorms and heavy rain from the Great Plains to the Ohio Valley. Thunderstorms will be possible across southern Arizona as instability builds throughout the day. Heavy rain will be possible across the Great Lakes ahead of an upper level disturbance. Thunderstorms will be possible across the Mid Atlantic again on Saturday ahead of an area of low pressure. Across the Central Plains, thunderstorms will be possible as a warm front lifts northward. Heavy rainfall will be possible from the Mid Atlantic to the Northeast, Central Plains to the Mid Mississippi Valley, and across southern Arizona. Heading into Sunday, thunderstorms will be possible across the Northern Plains as a cold front moves out of the Rockies. Heavy rain will continue across portions of the Northeast and Southern Arizona. 

 

US Hazards for Friday, July 29, 2016

US Hazards

 

Region 1

Weak upslope flow will lead to the development of scattered thunderstorms across northeastern New Mexico, eastern Colorado, and southeastern Wyoming. Given the moderate wind shear and instability in place across Region 1, some thunderstorms may become severe. Large hail is expected to be the primary hazard. A few storms could also produce locally strong wind gusts. The severe weather threat should diminish during the evening hours. In addition, heavy rain will be possible from eastern Colorado into the Mid-Mississippi Valley. General rainfall amounts of 0.50-1.50 inches with locally higher amounts in excess of 2 inches, in addition to some flooding, will be possible.

Region 1

 

Region 2

Thunderstorms are expected to develop this afternoon across Region 2. A few of these thunderstorms could produce strong wind gusts in excess of 50 mph. The most likely time for severe weather will be during the afternoon and evening hours.

Region 2 Friday, July 29, 2016

Region 2

 

Strong to Severe Thunderstorms Possible From Mid Atlantic to Northeast 

An area of low pressure lifting northeastward along the Mid Atlantic coast and across Cape Cod will produce scattered to widespread showers and thunderstorms across the region. Rain will be possible through the evening as the low moves out. Marginal instability and increasing wind shear will allow for some strong to possibly severe thunderstorms, especially from the late morning through the afternoon, with gusty winds the main threat.

Strong to Severe Thunderstorms Possible Saturday Across the Mid Atlantic

Afternoon and early evening thunderstorms are expected to develop across interior portions of the Mid Atlantic ahead of an area of low pressure. Decent moisture, favorable wind shear, and modest instability in place may allow for the development of a few strong or marginally severe storms, with gusty winds the main threat. In addition, heavy rainfall will be possible for portions of the Mid Atlantic into the Northeast. Rainfall amounts of 1-2 inches with locally higher amounts in excess of 3 inches will be possible for many locations.

Strong to Severe Thunderstorms Possible Saturday for Portions of the Central Plains

Northwesterly flow aloft may produce isolated thunderstorms across portions of the Central Plains on Saturday. Thunderstorm activity should be focused along an eastward advancing warm front, initially developing in the afternoon hours before spreading into the lower elevations by the evening hours. Favorable wind shear and instability will allow for a marginal risk of severe thunderstorms, with gusty winds and hail the primary hazards. Further eastward across portions of the Central Plains and into the Mid-Mississippi Valley, heavy rain will be possible. General rainfall amounts of 1-2 inches with locally higher amounts in excess of 3 inches will be possible.

Strong to Severe Thunderstorms Possible Sunday Across the Northern Plains

A developing cold front moving out of the Northern Rockies and into the Northern Plains should be a focus for the development of thunderstorms across western portions of the Dakotas by Sunday afternoon, progressing eastward and possibly evolving into a thunderstorm complex during the evening and overnight hours. Initially, a few supercell thunderstorms will be possible with gusty winds, hail, and an isolated tornado possible. Gusty winds will then be the primary hazard by the late evening and overnight hours.
