Forecaster Evie: Heads Up, Plains and Midwest!

I am swamped this afternoon after being on the road earlier in the week. So, Forecaster Evie is going to take over and give an update on the flash flood, tornado and severe thunderstorm threat the next three days.
For late June, Friday-Sunday look very active with more rain in areas of the Upper Midwest where flooding is already occurring. Let's begin with the National Weather Service's rainfall forecast from this evening through Tuesday afternoon (July 1). More heavy rain is forecast where it is not needed.

In terms of tornadoes and severe thunderstorms, it is going to be quite active tomorrow afternoon and night in the central High Plains. Where the hatching occurs, hail larger than 2" and wind gusts of 75 mph are possible! Fifteen percent is the threshold where everyone should keep an eye on the weather.

Saturday and Saturday night things shift a little farther east.

And, finally, on Monday and Monday night, things are expected to be very active in the Upper Midwest with tornadoes, large hail and damaging thunderstorm winds forecast.

Once Mike gets caught up, he'll be updating you on these storms starting tomorrow. For now, Evie Out!
