A soggy day is likely across more of the Eastern U.S., while a Texas-size heat wave is expanding. However, it will be a brisk beach day in California.

WeatherBug Meteorologist Kristin Clark has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook Video.

Showers and thunderstorms will plow through the Southeast and East Coast states today. Flooding could be a threat, especially for low-lying areas. Highs from North Carolina to Maine will be in the 60s and 70s, while the Southeast reach the upper 80s to mid-90s.

In addition, chances of afternoon thunderstorms are expected across the Rockies and the Southwest. Once again, the Central Plains will face severe storms capable of producing golf ball size hail and damaging winds. The Northern Rockies could also face dangerous thunderstorms. The Northern and Central Plains will be in the 70s and upper 80s while the Southwest will reach the upper 90s and mid-100s.

The Northwest will also need to brace for isolated afternoon showers and thunderstorms, and will see temperatures mostly in the 60s and 70s, with a few mid-80s in parts of the Northern Great Basin.

The Southern Plains will be facing hot weather and partly cloudy skies on Thursday, shooting temperatures nearly 10 degrees above normal for many places. Most of Texas will reach the triple digits by the afternoon commute; Oklahoma will be slightly cooler in the mid- to upper 90s.

However, California and the Central Great Basin can expect sunny skies and cooler than average highs around the 70s to upper 80s, making for a nice day to be outdoors but a cool day at the beach.
