Today's Weather Outlook

The quiet early September continues across most of the U.S., with plenty of late-summer sunshine and even a taste of autumn in the Great Lakes. Parts of the West and South will have to deal with stormy weather.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
A large high pressure entrenched over the Upper Midwest will bring another day of bright sunshine from the high western Plains all of the way to the Atlantic Seaboard. This will keep the skies mostly clear of clouds. The eastern and northern flank of the high will be on the mild side, with highs ranging from the 60s in New England and the interior Northeast to middle 70s across the Upper Midwest, Great Lakes, southern New England and the Appalachians.
On the flip side, the bright September sunshine and a southerly wind flow across the Plains will produce temperatures in the upper 90s to near 100 degrees from southern and western Texas up into the western Dakotas. The rest of the central Plains, South, Southeast and Mississippi Valley will be in the upper 80s, with many places closer to the Gulf of Mexico, including most of the Deep South and lower Mississippi Valley, seeing highs reach into the low 90s.
Even with most of the U.S. staying quiet, a few places will be stormy. Afternoon scattered thunderstorms will be possible across the Texas Gulf Coast and Florida, with the Intermountain West, Rockies and interior Pacific Northwest seeing afternoon thunderstorms capable of producing large hail and damaging winds as temperatures streak into the 80s and 90s. California and the Southwest will see plenty of sunshine and high temperatures ranging from the 70s along the Pacific Coast to 100-105 readings in the Desert Southwest.
