Multiple thunderstorm complexes are expected to develop in the vicinity of this frontal boundary currently moving through the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley as it moves to the East Coast by Wednesday morning. A few severe storms will be possible as it interacts with a hot and humid air mass with wind shear aloft. Strong upper level ridging over the southern and eastern part of the U.S. will help keep temperatures feeling more like July for the first few days of September. Widespread highs in the 90s are likely from Texas to the Mid-Atlantic on Tuesday and Wednesday. Out West, cooler temperatures and high pressure will be enjoyed through the middle of the week.
