The warmth and high humidity will continue the rest of the week but some folks in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic will get some relief from the heat the end of the week as a backdoor cold front moves through and the air comes in off the ocean.
In the warm and humid airmass, scattered showers and thunderstorms will occur each day and in some areas, the storms will be heavy with flooding rains and gusty winds.
A more concentrated area of severe storms will occur across the Northern Plains today and again Thursday. Thursday could be a tornado day across the western Dakota’s.
Tropics are still scheduled to get active in the Gulf of Mexico next week. Most of the operational models are showing a storm developing so now it’s just a waiting game to when the storm develops and where it will go once it does develop.
