In addition to the searing temperatures that have gripped much of the central and eastern U.S. over the last week, the region has also been under the gun for daily rain showers and thunderstorms. Forecasters are warning that this unsettled weather pattern is slated to continue into the early part of the new week.

Rain and Storms Linger Through the Weekend for Central and Eastern U.S.

The heat is finally starting to abate in the eastern U.S. as the weekend comes to a close. However, the rain and storms will hang around thanks to the clash of the incoming cooler air with the hot air already in place. The biggest threat of severe weather will take place across the Upper Midwest and into the Northeast through the middle of the week.

The entrenched hot air mass pairing with the high humidity levels will lay the groundwork for this storm eruption. This is the same pattern that has contributed to the stormy pattern that has hit a large area of the Great Lakes, the Ohio Valley, and Northeast over the last several days.

A pair of cool fronts pushing to the south and east coming up will work to cut the heat and humidity while also fueling the development of more wind energy to support the storms. These winds will increase the risk of power outages and isolated tornadic activity into at least Wednesday.
