Another Round of Storms on Tap for the Central and Eastern U.S.

2 weeks ago

More thunderstorms are in store for parts of the Midwest and the East Coast through Monday. These storms will precede the arrival of the remnants of Beryl heading into the rest of the week. Here is a look at who can expect to start the work week off with some rumbles of thunder.

Variety of Stormy Impacts in Store for the Southeast and Beyond

Gusty winds, hail, heavy rain, and lightning will threaten the central and eastern U.S. through the start of the week. A stationary front has set up across the southeastern U.S., sending rain and storm activity in a zone stretching from Alabama and up into Virginia. Forecasters are warning that these storm cells could generate winds strong enough to create isolated pockets of property damage. The moisture associated with these storm cells will also present flash flooding risks.

While the storms may create travel delays and other impacts, the moisture will work to bring down drought conditions in this corner of the country. The latest report from the U.S. Drought Monitor details that a large part of the eastern U.S. is still under some degree of moderate to severe drought.

It was a weekend of stormy weather for the Plains and beyond. These storms brought heavy rain, localized flash flooding, and high winds to the High Plains and into the southern Plains.

It will be the Southeast, the mid-Atlantic, and parts of the Mississippi River Valley that are expected to be dodging storms on Monday. Starting in the Southeast, Atlanta is forecast to enjoy dry conditions early with storms erupting in the afternoon and evening hours. The forecast is calling for a high of about 92 degrees along with lows that hover in the mid 70s.

You will find a similar situation heading to the north. The popular summer resort town of Asheville, North Carolina is expecting dry conditions in the morning with the chance of storms increasing as the day progresses. The risk of storms will linger into the overnight hours. Highs will top out in the upper 80s before slipping into the upper 60s overnight.

Charlotte will also see the chance of rain in the afternoon and evening hours. Despite the clouds, the mercury will manage to hit the 90-degree mark with lows bottoming out in the mid 70s.
