Weather Underground midday recap for Sunday, August 02, 2015

A trough of low pressure moved across the upper Midwest on Sunday, while a stationary front stretched across the Southeast.

An area of low pressure dipped south southeastward over the upper Midwest. Cool air accompanied this system and collided with warm, muggy air from the Gulf of Mexico. This interaction resulted in heavy rain and strong thunderstorms over the Great Lakes region. Severe thunderstorm warnings were issued across northern Illinois and Michigan on Sunday. Hayward, Wis., reported 2.50 inch sized hail, while Menominee, Mich., recorded wind speeds of 59 mph.

Just to the south, a stationary front lingered over the southeastern corner of the country. This frontal boundary was the focal point for rain and thunderstorms. Flood warnings were issued in west central and northwest Florida. Tampa Knight Airport, Fla., reported a midday total of 1.04 inches of rain. Beaufort Marine Corps Air Station, S.C., reported a midday total of 2.28 inches of rain.

Out west, monsoonal moisture and daytime heating generated widespread showers and thunderstorms across the Four Corners, the Great Basin, northern California and the Pacific Northwest. Flood advisories were issued in west central New Mexico. Flash flood watches were also issued across northern New Mexico, western Colorado and southeast Utah. Temperatures remained above normal over the Northwest on Saturday. Heat advisories were issued in Washington and northwest Oregon. Bend, Ore., recorded a midday high of 85 degrees.
