Today's Weather Outlook

No joke here, the first day of April will be much like the last few of March, as a storm system creeps off the East Coast. A few showers will remain across the Tennessee Valley and Gulf Coast, with thunderstorms in the mix as well. Another storm will make inroads across the West.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Katie Ferrier has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
The same storm that brought severe thunderstorms on Easter will move into the Southeast, producing showers from the Carolinas to the Gulf Coast. Some of these showers could contain thunderstorms with gusty winds.
A few thunderstorms will develop later this afternoon and evening across the high Plains of Oklahoma and western Texas. These storms will have the potential to produce damaging winds and large hail.
Meanwhile, a Pacific storm will make its way into the Great Basin, bringing showers from northern California to Colorado. A bit of mountain snow will be found in the Colorado Rockies. The only other travel trouble will be in the Great Lakes, where snow showers will be the norm in Michigan, New York and northern New England.
The cruelest April Fool`s joke will be the temperatures in the northern tier. Highs will only be in the 20s and 30s across the northern Plains, with 40s from Montana to New England. A ribbon of 50s will stretch from the central Plains into the Mid-Atlantic, with 70s and 80s common across the southern states.
