Today's National Weather

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="An area of disturbed weather several hundred miles southwest of the Cape Verde Islands is showing some signs of development this morning and could become the first named storm of the 2009 Atlantic Hurricane Season."]

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 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.

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 is taking cdreit for it. This is pretty much Romney's MO.He is a major panderer and flip-flopper. No matter how you slice ithe wanted the industry to fail—because that is what he does. 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.

    I want to express my appreciation to this writer just for bailing me out of this particular issue. Just after scouting through the internet and getting strategies which were not powerful, I figured my life was gone. Being alive without the presence of solutions to the problems you have resolved by way of your main write-up is a serious case, and ones which could have badly damaged my entire career if I had not noticed the blog. Your actual know-how and kindness in playing with everything was crucial. I'm not sure what I would have done if I had not encountered such a stuff like this. I am able to now look forward to my future. Thanks so much for this skilled and effective guide. I will not hesitate to refer your web blog to anybody who needs to have guidelines on this situation.
