Another wet week coming up for the East this week. After severe weather hits the south-central Plains early this week, that same system will move into the eastern part of the country creating another corridor of tropical moisture to come north. The sub-tropical high in the Atlantic is not going anywhere too soon so that means another squeeze play of moisture.

The bulk of the heavy rains will hit the Southeast with scattered heavy storms moving north into the northern Appalachians and Mid-Atlantic. The soggy areas of Pennsylvania may see another 3-5 inches of rain which could cause more flooding problems.

Many areas of the Southeast will see rainfall of 1-5 inches which will also cause flash flooding problems.

Mixed in with all the rain will be scattered severe storms with impacts mainly strong winds.

The severe weather threat will hit early this week across the South-Central Plains. The impacts will be damaging winds, maybe a few tornadoes and large hail. Some storms will also produce flash flooding rains.

The West will continue to have the high heat with the heat expending into the Pacific Northwest through Wednesday. The fire danger will remain high much of this week.
