A large-scale upper trough will shift eastward across the Midwest and Northeast today. Several embedded shortwave impulses will provide focus of strong to severe thunderstorms today from the southern Plains into the OH/TN Valley vicinity. Isolated severe thunderstorms with mainly a strong to damaging wind threat will be possible this afternoon and evening.
Showers and thunderstorms will continue to be possible for portions of the region overnight, as a series of disturbances move overhead. Otherwise, expect overnight lows in the mid and upper 70s with highs reaching into the mid and upper 90s at most sites Saturday.
