This week parts of Texas and Oklahoma were hit by several tornadoes, causing injuries, but fortunately no reports of deaths. Significant damage to public and private structures was reported in several areas, thousands of residents were left without power. Damage assessments already underway and crews are working to make repairs and restore power supply.

As storms move to the southeast gradually dropping in threat level, Tornado Watch has been allowed to expire. A low pressure system will bring a threat of severe thunderstorms into the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic today while heavy rain and flash flood threat overspreads the central Appalachians and northern Mid-Atlantic into tonight.

Forecast takeaways:

  • A low pressure system will continue to spread inclement weather eastward

  • Possible clusters of severe thunderstorms across the Southeast and the Mid-Atlantic

  • Possible scattered floods due to heavy rainfall

  • Overcast skies, gusty northeasterly winds, and occasional rain at the Eastern Seaboard

  • Minor coastal flooding is possible along the New Jersey and Delmarva coastline later in the weekend

  • Heavy snow is possible across the Cascades, Idaho and southwest Montana

  • Moderate to locally heavy rainfall is possible along coastal sections of the Northwest

  • High Wind Watches have been issued across north-central Montana

  • Summer-like heat over parts of the southern Plains

  • Temperatures up to 100°F and higher throughout the southern High Plains and much of Texas
