It's going to feel like spring through the weekend across a good portion of the country which will mean severe storm chances and increased moisture with soaking rain potential as system track through regions.
The only region not expecting at least a chance for precipitation the next few days will be the southwest. Widespread rain totals over an inch are expected in several areas with some even getting 2 or more, and the best chances for this will come in east OK, east TX, west AR, west LA, southeast FL, and then from southeast lower MI eastward to western NY. There is also the potential for severe storms in parts of the country with the better chance coming today in the central High Plains, Southern Plains, and the best chances coming in parts of New England. Severe storm chances will become more marginal further east into the weekend.
Finally, we may see our first tropical or subtropical system of the season in the Atlantic as a disturbance off the east coast of FL is expected to intensify over the weekend, and could head towards the Carolinas. If this system is named it will be Arthur.
