The U.S. will remain mostly quiet today with warmer temperatures and sunny skies in abundance, but the Mississippi Valley and Northwest will continue to see stormy weather.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Miranda Hilger has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
Similar to yesterday, the Lower Mississippi Valley will battle another round of scattered thunderstorms. Many of these storms will hold off until later in the day, although some early ones could boom along the Gulf Coast. Temperatures for the Lower and Middle Mississippi Valleys will be in the 80s.
Once again, scattered rain showers and even mountain snow will blanket the Pacific Northwest. Precipitation will generally remain light compared to last weekend`s downpours. Highs for the Northwest will be in the 50s, with some 30s and 40s in higher elevations.
The Northern Plains and Upper Midwest will see scattered showers and possibly a rumble of thunder in the evening hours with highs in the 70s and 80s. Southern Florida will also see an afternoon thunderstorm or two pop up, with highs in the upper 80s and 90s.
Warmer temperatures but sunny skies will dominate the rest of the U.S. The Northeast and West Coast will have highs in the 70s, while the Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, and Central Plains will see temperatures in the upper 80s. The Southern Plains and Southwest will bake in the heat, with highs in the mid to upper 90s. The Mountain West and Rockies will stay cooler, with temperatures in the 50s and 60s.
