The Nation’s Weather for Saturday, July 13, 2019

_____

NATIONAL SUMMARY

Showers and storms will dot the northern Plains, Upper

Midwest and Rockies tomorrow, while warm air and sunshine

grace the Northeast. Heat will continue to build across the

central and southern Plains and bake the Southwest. The hot

weather, combined with lightning strikes from thunderstorms,

will lead to an enhanced risk of wildfire development and

spread. Barry will move inland into Louisiana, bringing

torrential rainfall, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes

to the Deep South. In some spots, rain may exceed 20 inches

and lead to catastrophic flooding. Along the immediate

coastline, storm surge flooding will be a primary concern.

The storm will also cause a high risk of rip currents along

the central Gulf Coast, presenting a potentially

life-threatening situation for anybody getting in the water.
