A strong storm system will be ejecting northeast across the middle and upper plains, bringing with it a frontal boundary that will be producing showers and thunderstorms. Lack of instability mechanisms means this will not be a major severe weather event.
Because a strong storm system will be moving northeast rather than straight east, a jet streak is likely to form in response to pressure on the jet stream.
The jet stream is like a rubber band- flexible but still has some limits on how far it can stretch. A storm system is like a finger pulling on the rubber band. In response to more pressure from pulling on the rubber band, there will be increased pressure from the rubber band to move the storm system back and thus ease the rubber band. This increased pressure in the atmosphere results in higher jet stream winds.
These higher jet stream winds of over 100 knots may very well fuel some more intense thunderstorms closer to the back end of the storm cluster.
These storms will probably be putting down some gusty winds and occasional small hail. However, as previously mentioned, a lack of instability will keep the storms from getting too strong.
