A slow-moving coastal storm will continue to crawl northward today, sending more rain into an already saturated Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. Meanwhile, the threat for severe storms will shift to the northern Plains.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Addison Green has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
As a nor`easter remains just offshore, rain and wind will pepper locations from eastern North Carolina to southern New England. Widespread showers and gusty winds will continue to impact cities such as Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York City. Overcast conditions will result in highs only reaching the 60s.
A potent low pressure system will progress northward, bringing showers and thunderstorms to the northern High Plains. Residents in the eastern Dakotas and western Minnesota should monitor the risk for severe storms, capable of producing damaging winds, hail, or even a couple tornadoes. Temperatures will surge into the 70s ahead of the cold front, while higher elevations of the Northern Rockies could see snow.
Elsewhere, the Southeast and Southern Plains will remain dry thanks to a strong ridge of high pressure. Plentiful sunshine will boost highs into the 80s from Dallas to St. Louis and east to Nashville, Tenn., and Atlanta. The Southwest will be chilly as highs only reach the 60s and 70s. The Pacific Northwest will be cool under partly sunny skies with temperatures in the 50s.
