The seasons may finally turn the corner this weekend, with spring finally taking control of the weather across the U.S. A few spring storms will march across the South, with the Northwest seeing a return to cooler, rainy weather.

WeatherBug Meteorologist Addison Green has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.


A spring storm system moving across the Southeast will cause a bit of a problem from southern Texas to the Carolinas today. Waves of widespread rain with embedded thunderstorms will soak the southern Plains and Mississippi Valley early, with the rain and storms moving into the Tennessee and Ohio valleys, Deep South, and Southeast by this afternoon. Even with the rain and storms, highs will be in the 70s and lower 80s.

Except for the Pacific Northwest, the remainder of the U.S. will have a mostly sunny, mid-spring afternoon. Highs will be in the 80s in California, the Southwest, southern Texas, and Florida. The rest of the nation will generally see highs in the 70s, with the Great Lakes seeing highs in the 60s.


Spring storms hitting the South today will continue to push eastward, spreading showers from the Gulf Coast into the eastern Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic by Sunday evening. The showers and storms will be scattered, so the day won`t be a total washout. Temperatures will be in the upper 60s and low 70s with the rain.

Outside of scattered showers across the Northwestern U.S. , the rest of the country will have a mostly sunny and quiet end to the weekend. The warmest temperatures will again be found across interior and southern California, the Southwest, and southern Florida. Here highs will be in the 80s, with desert locations of the West seeing 90s. Everywhere else will be in the 70s, with the Rockies and Intermountain West remaining in the 60s.
