It will not be a washout but across Upstate NY, particularly northern NY, into New England, a disturbance will roll through with additional clouds and scattered showers. A few thunderstorms may pop up as well but none are expected to become severe at this time. Temperatures recover a few degrees and will be “near normal” across PA, NY, NJ and New England. Temperatures and humidity levels will increase tomorrow and especially Friday, before another round of showers and thunderstorms roll through Friday night through Saturday. Those showers and thunderstorms will not wash out or ruin holiday weekend plans.
Across the Southeast US, the stalled out front is firing up showers and thunderstorms across Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina today. In these three states if you see showers and thunderstorms, it will by typical summertime pattern stuff, not all day and not every one sees them. Today is the biggest threat. Tomorrow and Friday the threat is less but not zero. By tomorrow and Friday, typical summertime heat and humidity take back over across the Southeast. In this part of the country at this time of year, a break in the humidity for any length of time, is a positive.
Severe weather threat is SLIGHT across North Dakota, South Dakota, and western Minnesota, with damaging wind gusts the biggest threat this afternoon and tonight. This was the same storm that brought severe weather across parts of Montana yesterday.
And finally, last but not least, it’s not officially “BONNIE” yet, but the storm that will become “BONNIE” is swirling off the coast of Venezuela today, will move off the coast of Colombia tomorrow, then slam into Nicaragua and Costa Rica late Thursday into Friday. It is expected now to be a tropical storm, and not a hurricane. It will reemerge into the eastern Pacific and restrengthen this weekend and beyond with a TON of warm open water ahead of it. It will change names once it enters the Pacific. We will continue to keep our eyes on the tropics.
