Across the Plains and Midwest, thunderstorms will be possible ahead of a warm front. During the afternoon, thunderstorms will be possible for portions of Montana along a stationary front. On Friday, a cold front moving through the Northeast will be the focal point for the development of thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening, Thunderstorms and excessive rainfall will be possible for portions of the Plains.

Region 2 Thursday, June 30, 2016

Region 2

 

Region 3

An upper level trough will move over Region 3 this afternoon and help initiate the development of thunderstorms along a front, The primary threat from these storms will be strong winds although isolated large hail is not out of the question.

Strong to Severe Thunderstorms Possible for Central and Southern Plains on Saturday

A developing surface low over the Central Plains is forecast to track eastward on Saturday. As instability increases, thunderstorms are expected to develop over Kansas and southward into northwest Oklahoma, the Texas Panhandle, and into northeast New Mexico. Gusty winds and hail will be the main threats. In addition, heavy rainfall will be possible from eastern Kansas into the Mid Mississippi Valley region. Rainfall totals of 1-3 inches with isolated higher amounts in excess of 4 inches will be possible, leading to the potential for flooding.
