MM’s Thurs Wx Forecast for June 30

Wx Summary

June ends with a warm and increasingly humid airmass. A few storms will be found across the plateau today but most of us will stay dry. A slow-moving cold front will sag into Tennessee on Friday and will hang around through the holiday weekend, offering daily chances for scattered showers and thunderstorms.

This Week’s Hazards

Widespread severe weather is not expected, but any storm that develops could be locally strong, with deadly lightning, heavy rainfall, and gusty winds.

Hurricane Forecast

One area of low pressure is moving onshore the Texas coast this weekend, bringing heavy rain and gusty winds. That system could still develop into a tropical storm before moving fully onshore. Another area of low pressure (red x) is moving westward and could become a hurricane this weekend or early next week. It is no threat to the U.S. Yet another area of concern (yellow-shaded region) is moving into the Caribbean this weekend. That will be watched closely as it treks westward over the coming days.
