The United States Faces Extreme Heat and Loud Storms During the Week

 The United States faces extreme heat and loud storms during the week.

Severe storms and heavy rains are expected in the south-central United States, and Florida will move from drought to deluge as the 2024 Atlantic hurricane season begins.

The Southwest is experiencing extreme heat, while areas from the northern Rockies to the Southeast are at risk of severe thunderstorms and heavy rain. Some areas already face flooding and wind damage.

Meteorologists are closely monitoring the northwestern Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico for the potential development of tropical storms. Severe weather is expected to continue across the country from east to west, posing risks to lives and property.

June 9 (UPI) -- As extreme heat persists in the Southwest, severe storms, torrential downpours, and downpours are expected in the south-central United States, according to Accuweather. The company said Florida is on the verge of moving from drought to deluge.

The weather map marks much of southern Arizona, Las Vegas, and even Southern California in red. It shows triple-digit temperatures and heat warnings as the weather heats up even before summer officially begins.

Severe and damaging weather affects much of the country, from east to west. Flash flood warnings are in effect in the Midwest, severe thunderstorm warnings in the upper Midwest, and beach hazard warnings in the Great Lakes region.

A tropical rainstorm is expected to batter Florida this week, pulling the state out of extended drought conditions and marking the start of the 2024 Atlantic hurricane season. According to Accuweather, meteorologists closely monitor the northwestern Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico for possible developments over the next week. While the incident could develop into a full-fledged tropical storm, meteorologists said it was unlikely strong enough to announce its identity.

AccuWeather meteorologists say a swath of land stretching from the northern Rockies to the Southeast is at risk for severe thunderstorms and heavy rain on Sunday, which could threaten lives and property.

This unstable air will then move Southeast along the edge of the heat dome that has settled over the western United States, across the central Plains, into the Tennessee Valley, through Sunday, and into the start of the work week.

The Front Range and northern Rocky Mountains in the Mississippi and Tennessee valleys also saw unsettled weather over the weekend. Some storms deposited more than a half-inch of rain, and fronts could bring more heavy rain early in the week.

In the Rocky Mountains, slow-moving storms can dump hail that accumulates as snow in some areas. They also have the potential to bring strong wind gusts, resulting in additional damage from wind-driven hail.

In Texas, stretches of the Neches, Sabine, and Trinity Rivers in the northeastern part of the state will be well above flood stage this week, and some areas will see major flooding.

According to the National Water Forecast Service, even without additional rain, some parts of these and other rivers may remain above flood level until mid-month.

Severe weather over the weekend brought damaging winds and widespread hail from south-central Nebraska to much of Kansas, parts of eastern Colorado, and far western Oklahoma.

Severe weather broke out again Saturday, leading to widespread reports of damaging winds and large hail from eastern Colorado to southern Missouri.

Severe storms are expected to resurface across already storm-weary South-Central states on Monday. Forecasts indicate large hailstones and gusty winds that will lead to heavy rain.

According to Accuweather, damaging winds could reach 80 mph Monday across western Oklahoma and western Texas into eastern New Mexico.
