More Gulf Coast Rain, Cold Front Generates Storms and Heat Relief Jun 9, 2012

The weekend ahead will be feature hot and humid weather for the upper Midwest, more rain for the Gulf Coast, and another cool day for the Northwest.

We start off with the rain in the Southeast.  From torrential downpours to steady and persistent showers, most of Florida has been unable to escape the wet weather.  The clouds and rain didn’t stop fisherman from heading out to the pier for some Saturday morning fishing today in Boynton Beach, Florida.

Impressive 48 hour rainfall totals.  And there is still more on the way!  By the end of the weekend some of these locations could see up to 10 inches of total accumulated rain.  Ponding in roadways and in low lying areas will be common. At least we’re not also dealing with severe weather (for now, that is all to the north). The biggest concern here will be for Flooding. Rainfall totals over 8 inches so far with this storm over the past few days:

Rachel Tillman (@racheltillman on twitter) sent us the following photo out of Mobile of her flooded yard. I can imagine this is the case across much of southern Alabama this morning.

Storms rolling across Montana and North Dakota this morning will march eastward into the afternoon.  Severe weather threat area for today includes North Dakota, Minnesota, and South Dakota.

As cool air push into the Midwest today, the severe threat will be nudged to the east tomorrow and extended down into the Central Plains.  Some of the cities included in the risk area are Minneapolis, Des Moines, and Kansas City.

Out ahead of this front, it is downright hot. Temperatures in the upper 90s and even into the 100 degree range for the Central Plains today.  This will be the warmest day yet this for portions of Nebraska.

Highs drop almost 20 degrees behind the front as the cooler air settling in for the Dakotas, Nebraska, and Kansas by Monday and Tuesday.

Notice high pressure returning to the Pacific Northwest making for a pleasant ending to what has been a soggy and cool start to the weekend.

Have a great day!
