Nearly one year after Hurricane Harvey bared down on the Texas Gulf coast as a category 4 hurricane in late-August, fears are growing among some residents in the Houston area as the most significant round of rain since then is set to pummel the region. This will not be another Harvey where up to 60 inches of rain fell over about a week-long time frame, but some locations will likely receive over a foot of rainfall, which will lead to flash flooding in some locations. The main driver of this heavy rainfall event this week is a trough of low pressure moving onshore and into the Texas and eastern Mexican coasts. This area of spin in the atmosphere, paired with a deep plume of tropical moisture, will aid in the development of long-lasting, heavy rains. This tropical moisture may be record-breaking in some cases. In Corpus Christi, the daily record…

A cold front, which brought severe weather from Colorado to Maine on Monday will slowly move to the south through midweek, promoting the risk for heavy, flooding rains, especially to the Central Plains and Midwest, as well as for occasional severe thunderstorms. Severe Weather Threat: Severe weather will threaten a large amount of real estate this Tuesday and Tuesday night, spanning from the leeward side of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado and Wyoming eastward through parts of the Midwest and Ohio River Valley and into the southern Mid-Atlantic region. The most widespread activity will be found in the Central Plains and near the Rockies. This is also where there is the best chance for a few tornadoes as well as for damaging winds and large hail.

A scorcher of a day Monday is ahead for the Northeast as a ridge of high pressure peaks in intensity and centers itself over the East Coast. This summer-like setup will make for a very hot, uncomfortable start to the new week following the holiday weekend as a combination of record heat and high humidity stream in from the Southeast. Widespread high temperatures into the 90s will be in store for the northeastern US Monday afternoon. A few locations in the Mid-Atlantic may even top off at 100 degrees. That paired with dew points between 65 and 75 degrees will bring the heat index anywhere between 90 and in some cases over 100 degrees. The cool spots in the region where highs will be in the 80s, which is still up to 15 degrees above average will be alone the southern coast of Long Island and New England thanks to…
