Global Weather Headlines for July 1, 2014:
Showers and thunderstorms that can at times become severe will threaten portions of Lake Erie and the Ohio Valley after pounding the Midwest. Blinding downpours, large hail and damaging winds are all possible as this system tracks east.
As the above storm system clears from the Ohio Valley, heat and humidity will settle over the region bringing temperatures surpassing the 90 degree mark from the Ohio Valley into the mid Atlantic and the NE. Due to the combination of heat and humidity, feels like temperatures will be flirting with the triple digits.
As the United States gets ready to face Belgium in the World Cup on Tuesday, a mix of sun and clouds will be present most of the day along with an isolated chance for showers and thunderstorms. Heat and humidity will also be present as the match takes place making the 80F temperatures feel more like if they were in the 90s.
After a soggy weekend and start to the week, Tuesday promises to bring drier weather to Wimbledon as high pressure settles over the area. Many matches were affected and delayed over the weekend as rain interfered with the plays forcing the player to have to wait in order to play against their opponents. Along with the drier weather, slightly warmer temperatures will also be present as the matches continue.
Severe Weather/Winter Weather/Tropical Weather:
A tropical depression has formed near FL, is producing showers and thunderstorms for parts of eastern FL that are expected to become heavier as the week progresses as environmental conditions are favoring this system in becoming the first tropical storm of the Atlantic Hurricane season as drier air and wind shear begin to diminish by the middle of the week.
In the eastern Pacific, TS Douglas spins nearly 500 miles SW of Baja California moving NW at 9 mph with sustained winds of 40 mph. This system is expected to become slightly stronger as the week progresses, however, no coastal watches or warning have been put in effect.
Also in the eastern Pacific is TS Elida which currently has maximum sustained winds of 50 mph as it moves NW at 12 mph. Because of its proximity to the Mexican coast, a tropical storm warning has been issued along parts of the southwestern coast of Mexico from Michoacán to Jalisco and up to a half a foot of rain is possible for these areas. Not much progress is expected from this storm during the next couple of days.
On the Horizon for Northeast SD:
The biggest weather event on the horizon will be the arrival of summer time temps as many places by this weekend and as early as Thursday will see the heat build in with temps approaching and passing the 90’s, this heat looks like it will last through the middle of July and possibly some places could approach the 100’s.
