Weather Underground Forecast for Tuesday, May 05, 2015

National Forecast for Tuesday, May 5th, 2015

An area of low pressure will shift across the Four Corners on Tuesday, while a cold front will extend across the Northeast.

A low pressure system will move slowly across the Four Corners and the southern Plains. This system will draw moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, which will promote the development of showers and thunderstorms across the Intermountain West and the Plains. There will be a chance of strong to severe thunderstorms over the southern Plains, focusing over eastern New Mexico and western Texas. These thunderstorms will be capable of producing large hail, dangerous straight line winds and isolated tornadoes. In addition, heavy rain associated with these thunderstorms will bring chances of flash flooding to northern Texas, Oklahoma and southwest Kansas. Disorganized showers and thunderstorms will also fire up across the northern Plains on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, a cold front will stretch across the Ohio Valley and the Northeast. Rain and thunderstorms will develop along this frontal boundary over the upper Midwest, the Ohio Valley, the northern Mid-Atlantic and New England. In addition, a trough of low pressure over the northern Caribbean Sea will bring chances of thunderstorms to southern Florida.

Out west, a cold front will move east southeastward across the Pacific Northwest. This frontal boundary will generate light to moderate rain and high elevation snow showers across the Northwest. The majority of California will stay clear of precipitation on Tuesday. .
