Short Range Forecast Discussion NWS Weather Prediction Center College Park MD 226 AM EDT Thu Jul 09 2020 Valid 12Z Thu Jul 09 2020 - 12Z Sat Jul 11 2020 ...Severe thunderstorms and flash flooding possible for the central U.S. today... ...More hot temperatures for the Great Lakes as well as West Texas... ...Low pressure along the North Carolina coast continues to be monitored by the National Hurricane Center for tropical/subtropical development... A potent frontal system will move through the Corn Belt today into a warm and juicy air mass. This will support the persistence and development of showers and thunderstorms, some of which may be severe and could produce local flash flooding and ponding on roadways. Temperatures into the upper 80s to mid 90s may approach record highs. The system will move into the central Great Lakes and Midwest on Friday with scattered showers and thunderstorms and a bit cooler temperatures. Across the South, a lingering frontal boundary will provide the focus for scattered showers and a few thunderstorms from eastern Texas to the Gulf and Atlantic coasts. Along the North Carolina coast, an area of low pressure will lift slowly northeastward and could possibly transition into a subtropical or tropical system. The National Hurricane Center continues to monitor this area but expected impacts, regardless of classification, will be moderate to locally heavy rainfall near and north of its track, gusty winds, and rough surf along the coast. Abundant cloudiness and increasing northeast winds will keep temperatures in the low to mid 80s. Over the Pacific Northwest, temperatures will trend a bit milder today and then Friday, but remain cooler than normal. Hot temperatures over western Texas and eastern New Mexico may approach records for at least the new two days (and likely beyond). The Desert Southwest will be hotter still, with afternoon temperatures soaring into the 110s each afternoon, with lower 120s likely at Death Valley by Friday into the weekend.
