A very active but unfortunately unpleasant week is in store for millions across the country as round after round of storms impact the eastern two-thirds of the nation. We’re tracking that and more in this week’s 5 Things to Watch. Rounds of Storms for East: A broad trough over the East this week will instigate the development of multiple low pressure systems, making for wet and stormy weather. For the start of the week, there will be a broad area of low pressure over the Mid-Atlantic and a more-organized low over the Ohio River Valley. Both of these storms will pose a risk for severe weather across these regions. Damaging winds and large hail will be the main risks, but isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out.

All modes of severe weather will be present, including a few tornadoes, damaging winds, and moderate hail.

We’ll also be tracking rounds of storms in the Northern Tier and record heat in the Southeast in this week’s 5 Things to Watch. Severe Weather Outbreak: A severe weather outbreak is likely Monday across the southern Plains. The Storm Prediction Center is especially concerned about the Texas Panhandle and western Oklahoma, where there is the best chance for tornadoes, damaging winds, and large hail. Already this morning, storms are roaring across West Texas up through western Kansas along the dry line. Meanwhile by the late-morning, we should begin to see thunderstorms fire up near the warm front across Oklahoma. Central Oklahoma looks to be the most active area with one round of storms in the morning, then possibly up to…
