This Week in Weather 6/1: Thunderstorms and Temperatures in the 90s
For This Week in Weather, we share the big weather stories in the US for the coming week of June 1, 2020 and how it will impact your business. Here’s what you need to know for this week in weather.
A fairly quiet weather pattern is expected Monday into Tuesday over much of the central and eastern U.S., as high pressure will be in control. The exceptions will be Floria and south Texas, where early summer instability will allow for scattered showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. Highs into the 90s are expected on Tuesday across parts of the South, extending northwestward into the Plains.
Business impact: With such high temperatures, energy usage will be way up from air conditioning.
On Wednesday, an upper level disturbance moving across the Great Lakes into the Northeast brings a chance for showers in the morning from the Mid Atlantic to Northeast. This disturbance may also bring about a few thunderstorms by the afternoon and evening across the Ohio Valley to the Mid Atlantic, and also extending into the interior Northeast.
Business impact: Companies using drones should be aware of the risks of lightning strikes damaging equipment.
Thursday into Friday, highs well into the 90s build across much of the Plains, extending as far north as parts of the upper Midwest on Friday, with highs in the 90s persisting across the Southeast. As a cool front slides south and weakens across the lower Ohio Valley to Tennessee Valley and parts of the lower Mid Atlantic on Thursday, scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible across those areas by the afternoon and evening. As the front stalls and continues to weaken over portions of the Southeast on Friday, additional afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms will be possible over the Southeast U.S.
Business impact: Showers could cause flooding in the Southeast, impacting drive times and ETAs for deliveries.
