Today's Weather Outlook

By WeatherBug Meteorologist, John Bateman
The weekend will end with a bit more coverage in thunderstorms across the U.S., and with more severe weather in the Plains.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Addison Green has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook Video.
Much of the Rockies, Central Plains, Midwest, Ohio Valley and Mid-Atlantic will see some rain falling and hear rumbles of thunder. These storms will primarily occur from midday through the afternoon, diminishing in the evening. The best chance for severe storms will be focused in the Central Plains, where some of the same places will see another round of large hail and damaging winds. These storms will likely persist well into the nighttime as they move toward the Missouri Valley.
The West and far northern tier will see a dry end to the weekend. The exception will be western Washington and the Minnesota Arrowhead and Upper Great Lakes, where some showers or thunderstorms may roll in from Canada during the afternoon and evening.
Today`s highs will be very similar to Saturday`s readings. The hottest spots will once again be in the Southwest and interior California deserts, where triple-digits will be the norm. Highs in the 90s will be common throughout the rest of the southern U.S., from the Southwest and Great Basin all of the way to the Carolinas and southward to Florida. A few near-100-degree readings will also be possible in central and southern Texas.
With the exception of 70-degree temperatures in the northern Rockies, along the Pacific Coast, and in New England, the rest of the U.S. will see highs generally reach the 80s.
