Severe weather threat with dangerous storms forecast for Memorial Day while Hurricane Agatha brings flash flood fears

Dangerous storms are expected for Memorial Day to parts of North and Central America, with potential for heavy rains and flash flooding.

Weather forecasts are anticipating that Hurricane Agatha will make landfall in Mexico and Central America on Monday, bringing mudslides and severe winds with it.

Parts of the US are also likely to experience severe weather stemming from a separate storm system.

Forecasts anticipate that the Upper Midwest will get hit with dangerous storms on Monday, according to the Weather Channel.

Weather Channel meteorologist Heather Tesch said a so-called “hatched area” within the storm system will be “bigger, stronger, and longer lasting.”

“That’s where storms are likely to produce damaging hail, damaging winds gusting at 60-80 miles per hour.

The states that could be affected by the more dangerous breakout section of the storm include parts of eastern Kansas, most of Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota.

Eastern parts of North Dakota and South Dakota are likely to be affected as well.

The weather system could also spawn tornadoes. 

Meanwhile to the south, Hurricane Agatha is expected to make its way through parts of Mexico and Central America on Monday as well.

The storm marks the first hurricane originating out of the eastern Pacific Ocean during the 2022 season. 

According to the Weather Channel, the severe weather accompanying Agatha could be life threatening.

The hurricane had already reached 35 mph by Sunday morning and is expected to worsen by the time it arrives along Mexico’s southeastern coast, the Weather Channel reported.

In addition to the strong winds, the storm is also moving at a slow pace.

Meteorologists said the slow rate of movement helps create conditions that are ripe for dangerous weather.

The slow pace will specifically aid conditions for flash flooding and mudslides.
