UPDATED By WeatherBug Sr. Meteorologist, James West
The new work week starts off with quiet weather throughout the Plains and Northeast, but plenty of storms will be possible across the Northern Plains and Rockies.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.
High pressure shifting across the Northeast will bring sunshine to much of the East Coast today. Across the Northeast and down into the Mid-Atlantic, the sunshine will be accompanied by seasonably cool 60s and 70s, while warmer 80s will be common in the Southeast and Florida.
Across the central and southern Plains into the Mississippi Valley, southerly winds will race around the western fringes of the Northeast high pressure, providing plenty of intense summer heat. Alongside generally sunny conditions, temperatures will soar into the 90s, with even a few triple-digits expected.
The only major trouble spots will be from the northern Plains into the Rockies, where a developing cold front will meet with strong monsoonal moisture to bring showers and thunderstorms. Residents from Phoenix to Bismarck, N.D., will need to keep an umbrella on hand for the start of the workweek. Thanks to all of the clouds, highs will be held in the 60s and 70s, with 80s in the Desert Southwest.
The start of the new workweek will be a nice one along the West Coast, where high pressure will firmly be in control. This will bring plenty of bright sunshine, with highs soaring into the 80s and 90s.
