Today's Weather Outlook

The return to work and school after the Memorial Day weekend is going to be an active one for many parts of the U.S. More severe storms will target the southern, central and eastern Plains. Storms will also rumble into the East while showers and threatening skies zap the Mountain West.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook Video.
For the sixth consecutive day, low pressure nearly stationary in the western Plains will help bubble severe storms across the Central U.S. Morning storms hitting the Midwest, Ohio Valley and Great Lakes will fade later in the morning before new ones get underway later in the day.
By the afternoon, the central and southern Plains will join in on the action. Dangerous storms capable of large hail and damaging winds will pierce western Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma before sliding east along Interstates 35, 40, 70 and 80 during the evening and overnight.
The Mid-Atlantic and Northeast will be in the crosshairs of a northward retreating warm front, with soggy and stormy weather replacing the weekend sunshine. Showers and storms will be a bit more scattered in the Northwest and Mountain West while large stretches of the Deep South remain dry.
Temperatures will feel like summer east of the Continental Divide with 80s and a few 90s baking places from Lincoln, Neb., to Charleston, S.C., and points south to the Gulf Coast. Cooler 60s and 70s will stretch from the Dakotas into the Great Lakes, northern Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.
While the Southwest bakes in the upper 90s, much cooler 50s and 60s will make the day back to work ideal for long-sleeved shirts in the Northwest and Great Basin. Much of California will see highs in the comfortable 60s and 70s.
