Much of the Eastern U.S. is in for a soggy Memorial Day weekend, with below-average temperatures sweeping the Central and Eastern states.

Severe weather conditions will extend over the Plains and East Coast, bringing additional thunderstorms and showers to the regions, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

Thunderstorms and the threat of damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes are expected on Saturday in the Central High Plains as thunderstorms move over Eastern Colorado to Western Texas through the holiday.

The threats shift south on Sunday into Southeastern New Mexico and Southwestern Texas, with flash flooding possible over portions of the Southern High Plains. 

And yet, excessive heat warnings and heat advisories have been issued across California’s interior Sacramento Valley and Northern San Joaquin Valley for Sunday and Monday.

Throughout the Desert Southwest and the Golden State’s Central Valley, temperatures are forecast to reach the high 90s and even triple digits on Sunday.
