Downpours will be anything but scarce as a front moves across the Eastern U.S. this weekend and showers spread into the Pacific Northwest. Luckily, the rest of the U.S. will get its fair share of an autumn preview with a dose of refreshing weather.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Bryan Karrick has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook Video.
The Eastern U.S. will have anything but agreeable weather as a cold front brings showers and thunderstorms to the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys and the Northeast.
Thunderstorms will mostly be concentrated in the Mid-Atlantic coast, while widespread showers cover the Northeast that will cool temperatures down to the 60s. The Ohio Valley, Tennessee Valley and Mid-Atlantic will see highs in the 70s. Temperatures in the upper 80s will be seen across the Southeast with some locations reaching the 90s in Florida.
The Pacific Northwest will have similar poor luck with the weather as showers drench the coastline. These showers will even extend into northern California throughout the day, keeping highs in the 60s.
The remainder of the U.S. will be fortunate enough to see blue skies and sunshine. Temperatures in the Southwest will be in the 90s with some cities reaching triple-digits, while the Mountain West and the Plains see highs in the 70s and 80s. Temperatures will cool off drastically in the Upper Midwest with highs in the 50s and 60s.
The cold front will continue to move across the Eastern U.S., bringing more wet weather to the East Coast in the morning. Luckily, the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast will see clearing as the day progresses. Scattered thunderstorm activity will stay in the extreme Southeast. The Northeast will see highs in the 60s while the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast see temperatures in the 70s and 80s.
Showers will continue in the Pacific Northwest, becoming spotty and light in the Northern and Central Rockies that will cool temperatures down to the 50s. Locations in the Intermountain West will also see highs chilled down to the upper 50s and 60s.
Sunday in the Plains and Southwest will be nearly identical to today`s weather, with highs in the 70s and 80s in the Plains and upper 90s in the Southwest. The Upper Midwest will luck out with crisp temperatures in the 60s again, while the Ohio and Mississippi Valleys see highs in the 60s and 70s.
