Flooding Storms To Move Across Central US, Join On Interstate-95 Corridor This Week
As heat holds on and humidity increases in the eastern United States, a slow-moving swath of flooding showers and thunderstorms will move forward from the Midwest to the Eastern Seaboard and, in the end, halt as the week steps forward.
While extensive harsh weather isn’t expected this week, the storms can pack an adequate amount of rainfall to bring about localized events of urban and small stream flooding. As the storms advance densely populated regions, travel disturbances will raise with the potential for several roads to be chocked by quickly rising water.
Airline hindrances are expected as the storms advance and pass over airports.
A few storms can be robust enough to bring strong wind gusts that can break tree limbs and result in erratic power outages. Albeit the majority of the gusty storms will take place between 3 and 9 PM local time, there can be a few anticipations. In this pattern, downpours can take place anytime during the day and night as the core of the moisture advances.
A cool front linked to the storms will make more forward advancement across the northern tier in place of the Deep South.
On Tuesday, the main axis of thunderstorms and showers is forecast to expand from Louisiana to upstate New York, northern New England and southeastern Quebec. It is expected to take until Wednesday afternoon and evening before the focused region of storms reaches the Interstate-95 corridor from Washington, D.C., to Baltimore, Philadelphia, Boston and New York City.
The storms will break heat as they approach. However, high humidity may remain in the Deep South and near the Atlantic coast.
Toward the end of the week, the forward speed of the front will grind to a halt in the Southeast and is projected to slow down to a great extent in the coastal regions of the Northeast. Thunderstorms and showers will keep on going off along this frontal zone, particularly in the humid air.
Tropical moisture that consists of a region of disturbed weather may even come into play. That disturbance is estimated to advance the Florida Peninsula late in the week. The risk of localized flash flooding may stay behind for quite a few days in the Southeast and at least into Friday in coastal regions of the mid-Atlantic.
For the ones heading to or at the beach by now this week, the best bet for staying free of rain will hold through Tuesday in New England, into Wednesday in the mid-Atlantic and Thursday along the southern Atlantic coast.
White the Southeast and the immediate coastal regions of the Northeast are expected to remain unsettled and muggy at the end of the week, less humid air that invades the Midwest on Tuesday and Wednesday will arrive at the central Appalachians and northern New England by Thursday.
