The constant fall-season battle between differing air masses over the central United States will lead to more thunderstorms this week. A low pressure system tracking between Kansas City and Omaha will spark some severe storms Tuesday night. The low will bring cool and dry air out of the Rocky Mountains to clash with the warm and moist air over the central plains. The main threat will be large hail, but some storms may also be capable of producing strong winds.
As this system moves east on Wednesday, more general thunderstorms will be likely along a warm front from the Great Lakes to the Ohio Valley. The threat for severe weather will be fairly isolated, but some strong to severe storms are possible from eastern Oklahoma to southwestern Missouri. Any severe storms that develop will again be capable of producing large hail and damaging winds.
On Thursday, the low will track through Pennsylvania and New York. Thunderstorms will still be possible over the Mid-Atlantic, but severe weather is not expected.
