Weekend Weather Spotlight: 4-24-20

Another active stretch of weather for parts of the country through the weekend, including central and eastern parts again. 

First, a low-pressure system makes it off the east coast early today producing rain, possibly heavy at times in parts of the Mid-Atlantic and southern New England on the northern side, and further south along and ahead of a front moving through FL a few severe storms will be possible. Also today another low-pressure system further west into the Plains will track east to the Ohio River Valley Saturday and then into the Northeast by Sunday producing more heavy rains. Severe storms are possible with the system today and tonight in southeast OK, northeast TX, and southwest AR, but nothing widespread like the last two weekends. The severe threat with this system becomes more marginal further east on Saturday into the Carolinas, northeast GA, and southeast VA closer to the low while the same type of chance builds southward through the rest of FL. 

Elsewhere a disturbance builds into the northern Plains and parts of the Midwest on Saturday producing the best chances for showers and a few storms in the eastern Dakotas, southwest MN, and north-central IA. The Pacific Northwest will also see considerably wet conditions over the weekend with heavy rainfall potential for western WA and northwest OR on Saturday and again late Sunday night as a couple of waves move through this region.
