Stream Of Tropical Moisture To Result In Continued Flash Flooding Across Parts Of The East Today And Tomorrow
Hello everyone! Tropical moisture has been streaming up the East Coast for much of the past several weeks, and that pattern shows no signs of letting up as we begin the month of August. A trough of low pressure remains anchored in the Mississippi Valley this morning, with high pressure near Bermuda. Southerly winds in between these two features is setting up a pipeline of tropical moisture that runs from the Gulf of Mexico directly to Canada. Beneath this plume of moisture sits a weak cold front, which will trigger more showers and storms as we move into this afternoon.
