Northeast

One more fairly pleasant day will take hold over most of the region on Wednesday before some big changes arrive starting on Thursday. A strong cold front pushes through, leading to the potential for some nasty severe weather for the I-95 corridor on Thursday evening. Then, cooler weather (though not nearly as cool as the Great Lakes or Upper Midwest) will make its way into the picture in time for your weekend.

(FORECAST: New York | Boston | Buffalo | Burlington)

East Central

A cold front makes its way into the region on Thursday as well, with storm chances for Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee through Wednesday. But, the front looks like it may stall out right over North Carolina on Friday, leading to chances for storms in the area for the weekend, and the potential for more flooding in the state. Storms could also stay through the Delmarva peninsula into the weekend as well.

Southeast

South Florida looks soggy and stormy the next few days, with localized flash flooding possible as a trough of low pressure works its way into the picture. Elsewhere, stronger storms are possible for northern Mississippi and Alabama on Thursday and Friday and into the southern portions of both states and Georgia for Friday. That front stalls out, leading to plenty of storms in coastal South Carolina, north Florida and southern Georgia for the weekend.

lows

South

The morning will start off dry, but we could see a few afternoon storms building in along the Gulf coast. We’re also tracking a cold front coming in from the north that could bring showers and thunderstorms to Oklahoma, Arkansas, and north Texas. The front will push south into Thursday bringing storms and cooler air to the rest of the region. Lows will start us off in the 60s and 70s this morning. Afternoon highs will mainly be in the 90s, but the panhandle region could see 80s behind the front.

Great Lakes

The threat for severe storms continues across Illinois, Indiana, southern Michigan, and northwest Ohio this afternoon. A powerful low pressure system will bring a chance of thunderstorms for most of the day. Heavy rainfall has prompted a Flash Flood Watch for Wisconsin, much of Illinois, and central Indiana until this afternoon. As a cold front passes, a drier and significantly cooler pattern will build in. Overnight lows will range from the 40s and 50s behind the front, to the 60s and 70s out ahead of it. Highs this afternoon will warm into the 80s and 90s in the south, but most of the region will only see 50s, 60s, and 70s.
