Risk for Thunderstorms Monday across Wyoming and the Central High Plains
Strong to severe thunderstorms are expected across portions of Wyoming into the High Plains on Monday. An upper level disturbance will move into the region, which will initiate the development of thunderstorms over Wyoming this afternoon. This activity will increase in coverage while shifting eastward. Damaging winds and large hail will be the primary hazards with any storms that become severe.

Excessive Rainfall for the Southwest through Tuesday
Above normal monsoonal moisture content will remain in place across the Southwest through at least Tuesday. As with previous days, scattered thunderstorm development will occur for much of the day. The heaviest storms are expected near and over the higher terrain. Slow moving, heavy thunderstorms will pose a risk for flash flooding, especially for places that have received multiple days of rain.

Thunderstorm Potential Tuesday across the High Plains
Strong to severe thunderstorms may develop across the High Plains on Tuesday. A thunderstorm complex may be ongoing during the morning, posing a risk for strong or damaging winds. By the afternoon, conditions will be favorable for the development of additional thunderstorms. There is some uncertainty regarding placement and coverage due to morning activity and associated outflow boundaries. Large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes will be potential hazards with any storms that develop.

Thunderstorms for the Northeast on Tuesday
Strong to severe thunderstorms may develop across the Northeast on Tuesday as an upper level trough and cold front move into the region. With abundant moisture in place, showers and thunderstorms are expected for much of the day. While this activity may limit instability somewhat, conditions should become favorable for the development of thunderstorms along and ahead of the front during the afternoon. Strong and damaging winds will be the primary hazards with these storms.

A Look Ahead
Showers and thunderstorms may develop across portions of the Upper Midwest on Thursday as an area of low pressure moves eastward over the region. The potential for showers and thunderstorms will shift eastward into the Great Lakes on Friday. Shower activity will continue across the Great Lakes on Saturday and extend southward into the Ohio Valley. Late Saturday, an area of low pressure will develop off the East Coast and move northward. This low may bring heavy rain to portions of the Mid Atlantic and Northeast on Sunday.
