Guidance brings a trough into the west late week and moves it across the USA into this weekend. Rain/SEVERE tstorm chances increase w/it as expected. Summertime HEAT dominates most all southern states with rain chances increasing southeast once the tough/front arrives late week.

Good morning little fella. Next time maybe :) Getting this thing onshore should help improve the weather/overwash for the OBX.

Yesterday's leftovers become today's storm trigger... Leftover spin moving into KS now becomes this afternoons catalyst for SEVERE storms as it rides up in to humid air and firest storms in NE,IA,SD,and MN. All hazards in play.
