Scattered showers and storms are expected across the southern part of the country, and parts of the Upper Midwest.
First, a front will be draped from the Southern Plains to the Mid-Atlantic the next couple of days before moving further east northeast on Sunday. This front will be the focal point for widespread scattered shower and storm activity with heavy rain potential. The overall severe storm threat is low, however, a few cannot be ruled out. Widespread rainfall totals in the 1.5-4 inch range are anticipated from these storms from SW KS/TX and OK panhandles to NC and VA.
Next, troughs will be in place in the southwestern part of the country and will produce isolated to scattered showers and storms through the weekend in AZ, NM, CO, much of UT, southern NV, and parts of east-central CA. Some heavier downpours will be possible with this activity.
Finally, an upper disturbance builds into ND Saturday evening and moves southeast into MN on Sunday and into WI by Sunday overnight. This feature initially will bring isolated shower and storm chances to parts of ND and northwest MN Saturday evening through early Sunday, but coverage is expected to increase across northern and central MN during the afternoon and evening and move into WI during the evening and overnight.
