Today's Weather Outlook
8:45 AM EDT, September 10, 2013
By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Chad Merrill
Much of the U.S. will see quiet weather today, but there will be a few areas of trouble, namely in the Rockies, Southwest and Northeast.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
The same weather maker that brought rain and storms to the Upper Mississippi Valley Monday will race into New England. Rain and a few rumbles of thunder will be present, with just enough clearing during the early afternoon to get juiced up for afternoon thunderstorms. Much of northern New England and upstate New York could be at risk for dangerous thunderstorms with damaging wind gusts and large hail.
Likewise, umbrellas will be a necessity in the Desert Southwest and Southern Rockies. Copious monsoonal moisture will surge northward, being squeezed out as heavy downpours. A quick inch or more of rain could lead to flooding in urban and poor drainage areas in Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and western Colorado.
Other than a few widely scattered late-afternoon thunderstorms in the Mississippi and Tennessee valleys, much of the West, Northern Rockies, Plains, Southeast and Mid-Atlantic will enjoy sunshine.
Toasty 90s will bake the southeastern Plains, Mississippi Valley, Midwest and Great Lakes with another pocket of 90s and lower 100s in the interior California valleys.
Rain-cooled 60s and 70s will dominate the Rockies with 70s spreading across the Northern Plains, Upper Mississippi Valley and Northeast. Meanwhile, much of the Interstate 95 corridor from Baltimore to Miami will warm into the 80s.
