Summer will not ease its grasp in the Southwest and the West while the northern tier of the U.S. gets another preview of autumn. More will threaten the Rockies.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Addison Greene has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
Thunderstorms and heavy downpours will cover the Rockies, Intermountain West and Southwest again today. Thunderstorms will be concentrated in the southern Rockies and Southwest and will ease into steady showers in the central and northern Rockies and Intermountain West. Locations receiving heavy rainfall accumulations may experience even more flash flooding. These storms will keep temperatures slightly cooler, with the Rockies and Intermountain West seeing highs in the 60s and 70s, while the Southwest will see highs in the 80s and 90s and southern California and southern Arizona exceed 100 degrees.
The occasional rumble of thunder and spotty afternoon showers will dot the Southeast today. The southern and central Plains will be breaking out the umbrellas as showers spread across northern Texas and into western Oklahoma, Kansas and Nebraska. Temperatures in the Plains and Southeast will be in the 70s and 80s, with western Texas seeing highs in the upper 90s.
Widespread showers will persist throughout the day in the interior Northeast, while early morning showers will move out of the Mid-Atlantic and Ohio Valley, opening up to some sunshine later in the day. The rest of the U.S. will see blue skies and favorable weather. Highs in the Northeast and Great Lakes will be in the 50s and 60s while the Mid-Atlantic and northern Plains see temperatures in the 70s. The Northwest and West Coast will see highs in the 80s.
