|Sunday Weather Outlook|
2 PM EDT, May 18, 2013
By WeatherBug Meteorologist, John Bateman
|Sunday will be a near-carbon-copy of Saturday`s weather over the U.S., except the severe weather risk will slide eastward ahead of a cold front, and stretch from the southern Plains all the way to the Upper Midwest. Just like Saturday, the storms will blossom late in the day, with the Interstate-35 corridor from Oklahoma to southern Minnesota caught squarely in its crosshairs. High winds, very large hail, and the chance for tornadoes will accompany the strongest thunderstorms. Due to the elevated risk for severe thunderstorms, there is a Moderate Risk across parts of Kansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri.|
A pesky front associated with the severe weather system will be the source for heavy downpours and thunderstorms roaming the East Coast from upstate New York to central Florida. The slowest-moving thunderstorms could cause areas of flash flooding, especially across the Mid-Atlantic and along the Appalachian Spine.
The only other weather hiccup to close out the weekend will be found over the Rockies and Northwest, where showers and thunderstorms will have residents reaching for umbrellas and rain gear.
Temperatures will be nearly-identical to Saturday`s across the U.S., with 80s and 90s stretching from the Golden State and Southwest into the Central U.S. and Southeast to Carolinas. The cool spots will be over the Rocky Front Range and eastern New England coastline, where the mercury won`t break 60 degrees.
