Today's Weather Outlook
UPDATED 9:15 AM EDT, May 7, 2010
By WeatherBug Sr. Meteorologist, James West
The start of an unseasonable weekend cool down throughout the northern and eastern U.S., will take roots across the Plains today as a cold front drives thunderstorms eastward. The chill will hit the northern Rockies and northern Plains, while a nice spring warm-up will continue across the South and Southwest.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Rachel Peterson has the latest on today's weather in this exclusive WeatherBug Video.
Strong, possibly severe, thunderstorms will march out of the Midwest, eastern Plains and into the Ohio Valley and the eastern Great Lakes throughout the day. A few lingering rain showers will be found across the north-central Plains, with even a bit of wet snow mixing in across the extreme northern Dakotas and Minnesota.
The rest of the U.S. will see plenty of May sunshine, but temperatures will have a wide range.
Warmest temperatures will be found in a wide ribbon stretching from the Southwest eastward into the southern Plains and the Southeast. Highs in the 80s will be common, with 90s throughout the Southwest, southern Texas and Southeast. A few of these 80-degree temperatures will make into the Ohio Valley and the southern Mid-Atlantic.
Much cooler 30s and 40s will be found across the Rockies and northern Plains, with 50s and few 60s readings in the Northwest, central Plains, Great Lakes and the Northeast.
