The soggy East will get pelted with more downpours heading into the homestretch of the workweek, while areas of rain disrupt outdoor plans across the Mountain West and Rocky Front Range. Meanwhile, the Upper Mississippi Valley and Great Lakes will squeeze out a refreshing day filled with sunshine.

WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.

Rain gauges in the East already running high from summer downpours will see additional showers and thunderstorms today. Most of these will develop during the midday and afternoon and slowly fade away after sunset. A few stronger storms could get going along Interstate 20 in the Southeast.

The same can be said in the Mountain West and northern Plains for the homestretch of the workweek. Low pressure moving east of the Front Range will spark storms in Montana and the western Dakotas. A few along and north of Interstate 94 will contain large hail and gusty winds. Otherwise, a quick downpour and frequent lightning can be expected with storms that fire up this afternoon across the Rockies and Southwest.

In between the Mountain West and Eastern storms, a Canadian high pressure will bring a much more refreshing air mass into the Great Lakes and Midwest. Highs will top out in the lower to middle 80s for Chicago, Milwaukee, Detroit, Indianapolis and St. Louis with comfortable humidity levels for mid-July.

Much of the central Plains and West Coast will also be dry while a few storms sneak across the Red River Valley from Oklahoma into Texas.

Toasty 90s and triple-digits will warm the Plains to the Mountain West as well as interior California and the Southwest. The Northwest, Great Basin and much of the East will see highs in the 70s and 80s.

The Cascades and Northwest Coast will enjoy the coolest weather in the U.S. with highs in the 60s.
