Today's Weather Outlook

UPDATED By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Chad Merrill
Rain clouds will replace the weekend sunshine going back to work and school today across the East. The seemingly unrelenting heat furnace will finally take a break across the Southwest, while the Plains enjoy a quiet day with blue skies.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Katie Ferrier has the latest in her exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.
The same cold front responsible for stormy skies to conclude the weekend in the Mississippi Valley will greet the East with downpours for the start of the new workweek. Frequent showers will require umbrellas and windshield wipers to be in good working order from Paducah, Ky., to Hartford, Conn., and all across the Southeast. A few more potent storms with destructive winds, hail, and a brief tornado may rumble late this afternoon and evening across eastern Kentucky and Tennessee.
Even the Interstate 81 and 95 corridors across the Mid-Atlantic could see a few fresh thunderstorms for the start of the workweek. Just like their Mid-South counterparts, a few could pack a punch of damaging winds and a brief tornado or two.
Brilliant sunshine will warm the Plains, while the Desert Southwest finally breathes a sigh of relief from the dangerous, record-breaking weekend heat. A few showers and storms will roam the landscape from the Sierra to the Rockies.
Toasty triple digits will sneak into the western Plains while the heat gets turned down a notch in the Southwest and interior California. Instead of the lower to middle 100s, highs will fall into the lower and middle 90s today. The most noticeable change in temperatures will occur in interior portions of northern and central California where upper 80s to upper 90s on Sunday will be replaced by cooler 70s and 80s today.
The mercury will reach the 80s in the Deep South, Great Basin and Mountain West with widespread 70s in the northern tier and for much of the East. Only the highest Sierra peaks and Northwest will remain in the 60s to start the workweek.
