The heat will subside in the East while showers and storms cover large stretches of the U.S. to conclude the weekend.

WeatherBug Meteorologist Addison Green has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook Video.

A cold front slowly easing south from the Great Lakes will cool temperatures back into the 80s for places like Boston, New York City and Washington, D.C. today. Much of the eastern Great Lakes into the Northeast will enjoy blue skies while the clouds and scattered showers will hang back a bit across the Mid-Atlantic near the front.

Much of the Southeast, Central U.S. and Southwest will also have to bring outdoor plans inside briefly during the afternoon. Spotty storms with frequent lightning and heavy rain are on the weather menu from Minneapolis to Houston and across the Gulf Coast. A few will turn severe with gusty winds, hail and tornadoes along and north of Interstate 94 in North Dakota.

Not to be outdone, the morning sunshine will give way to increasing clouds with scattered afternoon storms in the southern Great Basin to Southwest.

The West Coast, Northwest and northern Rockies will steer clear of any rain threats to conclude the weekend.

Heat will build in the West where 90s and 100s will be quite widespread from southern Arizona across the California valleys into the Interior Northwest. A bubble of toasty 90s will spread through the Plains with 80s common in the Deep South and southern Rockies.

Cooler 70s can be expected from the Upper Mississippi Valley into the Great Lakes and across far northern New England.
