Weather Underground Forecast for Thursday, May 28, 2015
Active weather will persist over the southern Plains on Thursday, while a cold frontal boundary will slide across the East Coast.
An onshore flow from the Gulf of Mexico will continue to push warm, muggy air over the southern Plains. This will result in strong to severe thunderstorms over the central and southern Plains. Severe thunderstorms will be possible in western Nebraska, western Kansas, eastern Colorado, western Oklahoma, eastern New Mexico and western Texas. These thunderstorms will be capable of producing large hail, dangerous straight line winds and isolated tornadoes. Due to saturated soils across the southern Plains, there will be threats of flash flooding in central and northeast Texas, as well as southern Oklahoma. Disorganized showers and thunderstorms will also be possible over the northern Plains, the Mississippi Valley and the Deep South.
Meanwhile, a weak cold front will shift across the Eastern Seaboard, bringing chances of showers and thunderstorms to New England and the Mid-Atlantic. Warm, humid air will also spread across the Southeast due to high pressure over the western Atlantic.
Out west, afternoon showers and stray thunderstorms will pop up from the eastern Great Basin to the front range of the Rockies. A ridge of high pressure over the eastern Pacific will keep conditions quiet across the West Coast on Thursday.
