US Weather Next Week

A weather system similar to the three that have passed across the central United States over the past month is once again moving down out of the Pacific Northwest toward the central plains. The system will pass through a region of dry air across the center of the country, but then come into contact with warm, moist air that continues to rush up into the southeast and the midatlantic states. If this contact takes place, it could mean another round of severe weather next week, especially toward the end of the week. At present, the jet stream is still well to the south, which is the condition that has led to the violent weather that the region has experienced so far this spring. However, there are some signs that it could finally move north, creating a more normal summer weather pattern across the US. Until this happens, though, conditions will continue that encourage violent weather, as long as winter storms keep evolving over the north Pacific and moving into the United States.

These combinations of lows are deadly. When they get to the plains they all work together. I come from the Midwest where people talk about the weather all the time because in there the weather can kill you in almost any season. I don't recall ever seeing a combination like this. Pray that the effects will be moderated.

Being in the N.W. and in these storms here, I can say how bizarre it is becoming. Cold, windy and more rain than before, a trend I'm seeing the last several years. I hope people prepare as much as they can for this, and hunker down. And leave if it's not safe...
