Today's Weather Outlook
8:15 AM EDT, June 25, 2013
UPDATED By WeatherBug Meteorologists, Chad Merrill and James West
The summer storm season is in full gear across more of the U.S., and the storm-weary Northern Plains to Great Lakes won`t get a break today as more severe weather is on the weather menu from the Dakotas to Michigan. Other dangerous storms will erupt across northern New England while rain jackets will be needed in the Northwest.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook Video.
A potent cold front sliding through the eastern Plains will be the focal point for powerful storm development today. Much of the eastern Dakotas to Great Lakes will have to keep a close eye to the sky for storms producing large hail and gusty winds.
Outdoor plans at the local pool may be interrupted by severe storms in the Interior Northeast as well. A cold front swinging in from Canada will swoop southeast, generating mid-to-late afternoon storms in places like Burlington, Vt., and Portland, Maine.
Another soggy day will greet the Northwest. Showers spreading from northern California and the Northwest Coast into the Northern Rockies will keep highs in the cool 50s and 60s.
Summer will be in full throttle mode once again in the Central and Southern Plains and Southwest. Highs will zoom into the 100s, with no heat relief from clouds, showers and storms.
Typical summertime 80s will spread across much of the East, Upper Midwest and Northern Plains on Tuesday. Between the cool Northwest and toasty Southwest, temperatures will warm into the 70s and 80s across the Mountain West.
