The week will close out on a bit of a stormy note across large stretches of U.S. east of the Rockies today. The West will continue to see early-summer like temperatures.

WeatherBug Meteorologist Bryan Karrick has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.

A large storm system that will stretch from the southern Rockies all of the way to the eastern Great Lakes will bring plenty of rain and storms to large stretches of the U.S. The worse storms will be found in Texas and across the upper Ohio Valley and central Appalachians, where gusty winds, hail and isolated tornadoes will be possible this afternoon and evening. In between the these pockets, rain and thunderstorms will be possible across the southern Rockies, southern Plains, the lower Mississippi and Tennessee valleys, southern Appalachians, Great Lakes, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. Even with the rain and storms, highs will be in the 70s and low 80s from southern Plains and Texas all of the way into the Northeast.

Ahead of the rain and storms, the eastern Gulf Coast, Southeast and Florida will see increasing clouds as temperatures jump into the upper 80s, with a few places in interior Florida seeing low 90s.

Outside of some late-day showers pushing through the Dakotas and northern Minnesota, the northern and central Plains and the West Coast will have a mostly sunny and quiet end to the work week.

Even with sunshine, a wide spread of temperatures will be found from the Midwest and Plains into the West Coast. The Plains states and Upper Midwest will be in the 60s and low 70s while the interior West Coast from the Southwest into Washington, including much of California, will see highs in the 80s to near 90 degrees. Even the Great Basin and western Rockies and Mountain West will be in the low to mid-70s. The immediate Pacific Coast will see cooler 60s as the Pacific Ocean influences the temperature there.
