An upper level low over the region yesterday produced additional isolated showers and storms, especially in the evening hours near NYC. Since then, the ULL has drifted southwest into the central US region, with a broad, strong ridge forming on top of the region. This ridge will continue to drift west before stalling through the mid week, resulting in a week-long heat wave starting today with highs climbing well into the 90s, ending with potential severe weather by next weekend.

Many new storm archives from 2009 through 2013 are currently in progress and will be added gradually within the next few months. In the meantime, the old viewing format is still available here.
