Today's Weather Outlook

A much deserved break from the seemingly unending bouts of showers and severe storms will continue across the U.S. today. The only areas where storms could ruin outdoor plans include the Southwest, central Rockies and Florida.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Kristin Clark has the latest in her exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
Monsoon moisture channeling through the Southwest, Wasatch and central Rockies will spell another day of downpours. Too much rain falling at once could result in flash flooding on roadways as well as rockslides and mudslides. Rain will impact places like Phoenix and Salt Lake City. Remember, if you come across a flooded roadway, it`s best to "Turn Around, Don`t Drown."
The front that wiped out the humidity along the East Coast is having a tough time working through Florida. Instead of enjoying the glamorous sunshine and low humidity, the afternoon will feature a smattering of showers and storms from Orlando, Fla., to Miami.
Otherwise, sprawling high pressure will ensure another quiet weather day for large stretches of the East and Central U.S. while another high pressure governs the western weather. Only one or two showers could sprinkle on the northern Plains as a moisture-starved front arrives late in the day.
Temperatures are starting to feel like autumn with highs today in the 50s and 60s in the Northwest and along the Rocky spine with 70s through much of the Great Basin, northern Plains, Great Lakes, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.
Summer is not relinquishing its grip across the Plains and Deep South where highs will reach the 80s and 90s. The clouds and scattered thunderstorms will keep Phoenix and Las Vegas 10 degrees cooler than average with highs only around 90 degrees.
