Today's Weather Outlook

The stormy pattern won`t let up its grip heading into the middle of the week across the Great Lakes, Ohio Valley and Northeast. Scattered storms will also interrupt outdoor plans along the remainder of the East Coast while dangerous heat builds from the Southwest to the Central Plains.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Kristin Clark has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook Video.
Fresh severe storms will build from Minneapolis to Indianapolis and head into the eastern Ohio Valley. Damaging winds, large hail and even a few tornadoes can`t be ruled out as these storms grow in intensity and head east along Interstate 70 during the afternoon.
Morning outdoor plans along the East Coast won`t be threatened by weather but scattered afternoon thunderstorms will cause brief interruptions from Miami to Portland, Maine. A few more potent storms in the northern Mid-Atlantic and New England will generate gusty winds and hail. Most of these storms will fade Tuesday evening after sunset.
The Northwest will stay in a soggy pattern today. Clouds and showers will bring out the umbrellas and rain jackets once again in places like Portland, Ore., and Seattle.
A sprawling high pressure will ensure sunshine and hot weather in the Great Basin, Southwest and Plains. Residents in Las Vegas, Phoenix, Amarillo, Texas, and Garden City, Kan., may need to escape to the local pool or mall to keep cool once again this week with temperatures surpassing the century mark.
Otherwise, a fairly typical summer temperature pattern will be found in the U.S. Highs will warm into the 80s and 90s in the Southeast, Mountain West and Great Basin with 70s across the Northern Tier. Only the Northern Rockies, Cascades, Sierra and Northwest Coast will stay locked into the 60s.
