National Weather Summary for Monday, July 23, 2018

by David Moran, on Jul 23, 2018 11:08:51 AM

Daytime heating will allow for the development of strong to severe thunderstorms across portions of central and southern Florida on Monday. A stalled front will be the focus for the development of thunderstorms across southeastern Louisiana. Thunderstorms may develop across the Mid Atlantic as an upper level trough moves across the region. These storms, as well as additional activity on Tuesday, will bring a risk for excessive rainfall across portions of Northeast and Mid Atlantic through Tuesday. Upslope flow may allow for the development of thunderstorms across eastern Colorado and New Mexico. This activity will pose the potential for excessive rainfall.

Potential for Thunderstorms Monday across the Mid Atlantic
An upper level trough, combined with a weak area of low pressure, will provide forcing for the development of thunderstorms. Daytime heating, combined with plentiful moisture, will allow instability to build through the afternoon. As clusters of thunderstorms develop during the afternoon and evening, strong winds and hail will be the primary hazards. There will also be the potential for frequent lightning and heavy rainfall.

Thunderstorms Tuesday for the Northern Plains
An area of low pressure is forecast to develop over eastern Montana with strong to severe thunderstorms developing to the southeast. There is some uncertainty due to morning storms. However, instability should be sufficient for the development of showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening. Strong winds and large hail will be the primary hazards with these storms.
