Weather Underground Forecast for Tuesday, July 30, 2013.
Active weather will continue in the nation¼’s mid-section of the nation on Tuesday as an impulse over the South-Central Plains advances into the Ozarks. This disturbance, combined with sufficient moisture over the region will lead to showers and thunderstorms from parts of the Southern and Central Plains into the Mid-Mississippi Valley into the western Ohio Valley. Heavy rainfall and strong storms are likely from the eastern parts of Kansas and Oklahoma through Missouri into southwestern Illinois. Meanwhile, energy ejecting from the Central and Northern Rockies will stir up showers and strong to potentially severe storms in parts of the Northern Plains. The Storm Prediction Center has issued a slight risk of severe storms for parts of the region through Tuesday night. While a few tornadoes may become possible in this region, large hail and damaging wind gusts are the main threats.
Elsewhere, a stalled frontal boundary over the Southeast will support scattered showers and thunderstorms in the southeastern corner of the nation.
Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Monday have ranged from a morning low of 30 degrees at Stanley, Idaho to a high of 102 degrees at Blythe, Calif.
