The weather will turn active heading into the latter half of the work week - it's all because of a new storm system rolling in off the Pacific Ocean.
Below is a picture of the western satellite view - can you see all the little "speckled clouds" - just little puffs all over the place?
This is a visible sign that a storm system has a lot of cold air aloft - and will likely be dynamic as it moves across the region.
I have drawn in the trough and area of low pressure.
Toward the weekend - we may see a severe weather outbreak that spans 3 days as this storm slowly ejected into the center of the nation.
