Severe thunderstorms will pose threats of damaging winds, large hail, flash flooding and even a few tornadoes across a large portion of the northern and eastern U.S. each day through Sunday.
The storms will fire up along the periphery of a dome of high pressure that's been causing an intense heat wave in the southern tier of the nation over the last several days.
This persistent weather pattern was also responsible for two tornadoes in southern Ohio on Wednesday that damaged more than 100 homes and businesses.
Here's what to expect from the storms through the weekend.
Scattered thunderstorms are expected Saturday afternoon and evening from parts of the northern Rockies eastward across much of the northern Plains.
Isolated severe storms could also develop in portions of the Southeast and the southern mid-Atlantic.
Damaging wind gusts and large hail are the main threats, but a few tornadoes are also possible, particularly in central and eastern North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota.
The storms in the East will also have the potential to produce flash flooding.
The highest threat of flooding will stretch from Washington, D.C. into the Carolinas.
Scattered severe thunderstorms are possible across parts of the Upper Midwest on Sunday afternoon and evening.
Damaging wind gusts and large hail are the primary threats, but a few tornadoes are also possible.
Non-severe thunderstorms could also linger in portions of the Southeast, but flash flooding will remain a concern, especially in southeastern Georgia and eastern South Carolina.
