SEVERE STORMS
Severe storms are moving through the Midwest this morning and the threat of severe weather will continue through the day. Strong storms will be capable of producing dangerous flash flooding, damaging winds, hail and a few isolated tornadoes.

HEAT ACROSS THE PLAINS AND SOUTHWEST
Heat advisories are in effect for northeastern Oklahoma today (including the Tulsa metro area, which is under an excessive heat warning). Temperatures will continue to be hot in Phoenix, with highs around 111 this afternoon. Phoenix is also under an excessive heat warning. There’s no relief in sight for the Southwest.

THE TROPICS
We are watching an area of disturbed weather several hundred miles southwest of the Cape Verde Islands. Global forecast models are showing some potential for slow development of this area over the next few days. Even if this area does develop into a tropical cyclone, the models show it curving away from the U.S. mainland.

He buysbusinesses then destroys them. He's a corporate raider. He's stilllying and flip flopping about the economy. He really has no backboneAT ALL.
