Tracking Increasing Storm Chances This Weekend

Residents across many parts of the United States are advised to be on high alert this weekend as the chance of severe storm activity increases. Experts have predicted that the upper-level low-pressure system will sweep through the central part of the country, creating instability and triggering strong thunderstorms.

Where Will the Storms Hit?

The areas which are most susceptible to storm activity include the Midwest and the South, with the possibility of thunderstorms forming from parts of Southern Texas to Illinois. These storms are expected to produce heavy rainfall, hail, and high winds, which could result in flash flooding, broken tree branches, and power outages.

When Will the Storms Begin?

The storms are likely to develop from late Friday evening, June 11 through Sunday, June 13, 2021. The National Weather Service and other meteorological agencies are monitoring the situation and providing updates as the storm develops.

What to do During a Thunderstorm?

It is crucial for those residing in areas affected by thunderstorms to take precautions and stay safe. Here are some tips:

1. Stay Indoors: The best way to avoid being struck by lightning is to stay inside a building and away from open doors or windows. If you are outside, find shelter immediately.

2. Unplug Electrical Appliances: To avoid damage from lighting strikes, unplug all electrical appliances and stay away from electrical outlets.

3. Avoid Water: Do not use running water or shower during a storm. Electricity can travel through plumbing, putting you at risk of electrocution.

4. Stay Informed: Listen to weather updates by tuning into your local radio or TV station for instructions and advice in case an emergency arises.

5. Create a Family Disaster Plan: Discuss what you will do in case of a severe storm with your loved ones. Make sure everyone knows the plan and where to go in case of an emergency.


In conclusion, this weekend will see an increase in storm activity in many parts of the United States. It is essential to stay informed, be aware of the weather conditions affecting your area, and take precautions to avoid any potential danger. By following the tips outlined above, you can ensure that you and your family remain safe and secure during a storm. Stay safe!
