by David Moran, on Jul 26, 2016 11:54:42 AM

A trough developing in the lee of the Rockies will allow for the development of thunderstorms across the Northern and Central Plains on Tuesday. Daytime heating will allow for the development of thunderstorms across portions of the Tennessee Valley and Mid Atlantic. Additional thunderstorms will be possible across the Northern and Central Plains ahead of any area of low pressure. A stationary front along the Atlantic Coast will allow for a risk for thunderstorms. Thunderstorms will continue across portions of the Plains into Thursday. A risk for thunderstorms will continue along the Atlantic Coast on Thursday.

 

US Hazards for Tuesday, July 26, 2016

US Hazards

 

Region 1

Large amounts of moisture and plentiful daytime heating should allow for the development of scattered thunderstorms across Region 1 during the afternoon, with some thunderstorms clustering. Damaging winds will be the primary hazards, with storms diminishing after dark.

 

Major Cities in Region: Cincinnati, OH, Charleston, WV. Richmond, VA, Raleigh, NC, Knoxville, TN

 

Region 1 for  Tuesday, July 26, 2016

Region 1

 

Region 2

Ongoing thunderstorms in the Northern Plains will likely limit a northward extent of potential severe weather today. However, new thunderstorm activity is expected along the front that will be draped from the Northern Great Lakes to the Northern Rockies, as well as along outflow boundaries from this morning's thunderstorms. Initially, individual to clustered thunderstorms are possible with large hail and damaging winds from supercells before storms form into larger clusters or a line where damaging winds would become the primary threat. Dry air should limit the eastward extent of the severe threat going into the late evening and early morning time frame. Heavy rain will also be possible with rainfall amounts of 2-4 inches and locally higher amounts in excess of 5 inches

 

Major Cities in Region: Bismarck, ND, Fargo, ND, Duluth, ND, Sioux Falls, SD. Kearney, NE, Goodland, KS

 

Update 1:15pm CDT: Severe thunderstorm in southeastern South Dakota. Quarter sized hail and damaging winds in excess of 60 mph possible.
