Quiet spring weather will encompass much of the U.S. today, although there will be a few areas that will have to contend with a Mother Nature`s interruptions. An area that has become used to dangerous weather over the last couple of weeks, the Southern Plains will once again be dealing with severe storms. In addition, people in the Northeast and on the West Coast will have to bring their umbrellas to fend off scattered spring showers.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
Severe storms will fire up once again this afternoon, especially in the Texas Panhandle and Mississippi Delta. Gusty winds and large hail will be the biggest threats in any storms that do develop.
Gloomy weather will be on tap in the Northeast as a cold pool of air dropping down from Canada will cause scattered showers to pop up from Buffalo, N.Y., to Bangor, Maine. Despite some breaks of morning sun, a few more showers may occur later in the day from New York to Boston.
Another storm will set its sights on the West Coast, bringing showers onshore from Seattle to San Francisco and Los Angeles later in the day. Some of these showers will be heavy at times, especially in northern California.
Elsewhere, large portions of the U.S. will enjoy quiet and sunny weather. Plentiful sun is expected from the Mid-Atlantic to the Northern Plains into the Desert Southwest. The only other issue in this area will be the gusty winds expected in the Great Basin.
The coolest area will be the interior Northeast and Northern Plains, where temperatures will be stuck in the 40s. Coastal areas of the Northeast will be in the 50s; closer to seasonal averages. Offsetting the cool Northern U.S. will be the Southern Tier, where temperatures will jump into the 80s in Florida and the Deep South, with some scorching 90s even possible from West Texas into the deserts of the Southwest.
