Heavy Rain and Thunderstorms in the Deep South and portions of the east coast

A slow moving frontal boundary will continue to bring areas of heavy rain and thunderstorms in the Deep South and East coast early this week. A low pressure system will keep conditions wet and cool through mid-week in the Upper Midwest. High pressure over the west will shift east allowing cooling along the coast, and intensifying the heat for the interior Pacific NW and Great Basin. Read More >

There's a low risk for a few showers and thunderstorms this evening and through tonight. Widespread severe weather is unlikely. Otherwise overnight low temperatures will fall into the 60s area- wide. Patchy fog will be possible during the overnight hours near and south of a Canton to Hillsboro to Goldthwaite line. Dense fog appears unlikely at this time, but reduced visibility down to the 2 to 3 mile range can be expected.
An Ozone Action Day is in effect for Tuesday across the D/FW Metroplex. High levels of Ozone Air Pollution are expected. Consider activities that reduce the amount of excessive vehicle emission such as carpooling or walking/bicycling to work. High temperatures will climb into the 80s to near 90s, so be sure to remain hydrated with water if commuting to work/school on foot or via bicycle.
A few thunderstorms may develop across parts of North and Central TX on Tuesday afternoon. The risk for strong or severe storms remain low at this time and the main storm hazards will be cloud to ground lightning.
A stalled surface front currently over Central Texas will surge quickly north as a warm front Tuesday, before an upper low slides east over New Mexico. This will put North and Central Texas in a very moist warm sector with rich moisture surging northward from the Gulf Of Mexico. Occasional spokes of energy will rotate out of the upper low and bring more widespread showers and thunderstorms, with the possibility of heavier rainfall across the northwest half of the area.
An upper level disturbance will lift over the plains and work upon rich moisture moving north from the Gulf Of Mexico to produce off and on bouts of showers and thunderstorms, some containing locally heavy rainfall. Heaviest rainfall will be across the northwest half of the area.
Areas south of a Goldthwaite-Waco-Athens line saw localized heavy rainfall between 1 and 3 inches on Sunday, with more scattered to numerous showers and storms containing locally heavy rainfall expected on Memorial Day. Here are some flood safety tips, especially if plan on being outdoors or camping by area rivers and lakes.
