There is a bit of a cold nip to the air across the East today while spring lives up to its name in the Central U.S. and Rockies.

WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.

The day is beginning with a bit of frost on the cars and grass from the Interior Mid-Atlantic through the Northeast. Lows have dipped into the upper 20s and lower 30s from western North Carolina to northern Maine with middle 30s to lower 40s for the major Interstate 95 cities. Following the morning chill, warmer 60s will dominate by the afternoon.

Morning sunshine and increasingly warm temperatures will clash with a cold front ejecting out of the Northern Rockies will to ignite scattered late-day storms from the Rio Grande Valley to the Central Plains. Places like Del Rio, Texas, Albuquerque, N.M., Denver, and Lincoln, Neb., could see a quick downpour and hear a clap of thunder in the afternoon.

Breezy winds and cooler 50s and 60s will drift in behind the front across the Northern Rockies with similar reading in the Northwest. Otherwise, Sunshine will be on the weather menu for the West, Mississippi Valley and the East.

Southerly winds will boost highs well into the 80s across the Central U.S., with 70s and 80s stretched across the Southern Plains and Gulf Coast. Sizzling 90s and triple-digit heat will win out from California`s Sacramento Valley into southern Arizona.
