The string of sunny weather will continue along the East Coast today, while a fresh area of high pressure builds across the West and Plains. In between, a cold front will bring showers and thunderstorms from the eastern Great Lakes to Texas.

Across the East, the work week will end with the same weather present all week: sunshine and pleasant temperatures. High pressure will remain across the Mid-Atlantic, keeping a bright blue sky in place from Georgia to Maine. Temperatures will remain on the mild side, with highs in the 80s from New York City to Atlanta and 90s in Florida and the Deep South. New England will hold in the 70s.
A cold front will slice through the Midwest and Lower Mississippi Valley, bringing showers to the eastern Great Lakes into the Mid-South. Thunderstorms will rumble into Texas. Residents of Detroit, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Memphis and Dallas will all need to pack an umbrella on their way to work this morning. A light jacket may also be in order, as highs will only reach the 60s to lower 70s.
Behind the cold front, high pressure will extend from the West Coast to the northern Plains. This will lead to plenty of sunshine, but will do no favors for the firefighting efforts in the Pacific Northwest. While highs will only reach the 60s to lower 70s in the Plains, 90s and triple-digit heat will be found across the Interior West, with 80s near Seattle.
