Today's Weather Outlook

UPDATED By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Fred Allen
Most of the eastern U.S. will finally be able to breathe a sigh of relief from this week`s powerful storms, with the lone exception being across northern Florida. The other weather blemishes across the U.S. will be found across the Northern-Tier and central, northern, and southern High Plains today, where heavy rain and fresh thunderstorms will roam.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Addison Greene has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.
Finally, the weather spotlight won`t be shining so brightly over the eastern U.S., though a few powerful thunderstorms could still interrupt outdoor plans and barbecues from southern Georgia into parts of the Sunshine State later today. Even better, umbrellas and dodging raindrops this morning in New England will be traded in for a few showers and late-day splashes of sunshine; a few showers and thunderstorms will also percolate across the Mid-Atlantic, thankfully though, they won`t be severe.
The weather story will be different for those across the central and northern High Plains and parts of the Midwest, where a warm front will touch off a few clusters of dangerous thunderstorms from Kansas and Nebraska to eastern South Dakota and western Minnesota today. Every aspect of severe weather will be on the weather menu for cities from Des Moines, Iowa, to Fargo and Grand Forks, N.D.
Even New Mexico, Texas, and Lower Mississippi Valley residents will need to be on the lookout for a rash of showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. Some of the thunderstorms may bring locally heavy rainfall and ignite areas of flash flooding across western and southwestern Texas.
The only other weather interruption an otherwise quiet western U.S. will be found across the Northwest and northern Rocky Front Range, where showers will dot the sky.
The rest of the U.S., including the Intermountain West to Desert Southwest and the Great Lakes into the Southeast and Carolinas will revel in spectacular summertime weather today.
The U.S. will be dividing into two-camps temperature-wise today, with the Northern-Tier only managing the 50s, 60s and 70s.
In sharp contrast, the U.S. Southern-Tier from California to the Carolinas and Florida will top out on the toasty-side, with 80s, 90s and even a few triple-digits.
