Weather Underground midday recap for Thursday, May 28, 2015

Active weather impacted the central third of the country on Thursday, while a cold front moved across the Northeast.

An onshore flow from the Gulf of Mexico pushed warm, humid air over the Plains and the Mississippi Valley. This air mass aided in the development of strong to severe thunderstorms across the southern and central Plains. Severe thunderstorm warnings were issued in western Texas. Tornado watches were also issued in eastern New Mexico and Texas. In addition, flash flood warnings were issued in eastern Oklahoma and southeast Kansas. Gainesville, Texas, reported a midday total of 1.66 inches of rain. Tulsa, Okla., reported a midday total of 1.43 inches of rain. Just to the east, heavy rain and thunderstorms impacted the Deep South and the Southeast. Peachtree City, Ga., reported a midday total of 3.07 inches of rain. Gulf Shores, Ala., reported a midday total of 1.91 inches of rain.

Meanwhile, a cold frontal boundary extended southwestward over the Northeast and the Ohio Valley. As this frontal boundary transitioned eastward, it generated strong to severe thunderstorms over New England and the northern Mid-Atlantic. Severe thunderstorm warnings were issued across severe New England states on Thursday. Waterville, Maine, reported a midday total of 0.66 inches of rain.

Out west, scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms popped up across the Rockies and the northern high Plains. High pressure kept conditions calm from the Pacific Northwest to the Southwest. Temperatures ranged between the 80s and 90s across the southern California and Arizona deserts. Palm Springs, Calif., recorded a midday high of 93 degrees.
