Weather Underground Forecast for Saturday, May 23, 2015
A low pressure system will slide across the Four Corners on Saturday, while a cold front is forecast to linger over the Gulf Coast.
An area of low pressure will slide east northeastward over the Four Corners. This system will continue to bring showers and isolated thunderstorms to portions of the Pacific Northwest, the Southwest, the Great Basin and the Intermountain West. As this system approaches the southern Plains, it will interact with moisture streaming northward from the Gulf of Mexico. The result will be strong to severe thunderstorms over the central and southern Plains. Severe thunderstorms will be possible in central and western Texas, eastern New Mexico, eastern Colorado, Oklahoma, western Kansas and southwest Nebraska. These thunderstorms will be capable of producing large hail, dangerous straight line winds and isolated tornadoes. Heavy rain will bring threats of flash flooding to Texas, Oklahoma, southern Kansas and southwest Missouri. In addition, temperatures will be 10 to 20 degrees below normal across the central and southern Plains.
Meanwhile, a cold front will extend across the central Gulf Coast, the eastern Gulf Coast and the Southeast. This frontal boundary will interact with warm, muggy air from the Gulf of Mexico, fueling showers and thunderstorms from southeast Texas to Florida. A separate cold front will slide across the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast. Light to moderate rain will be possible over northern New England on Saturday.
