The central U.S. will be thrust back into spring as severe storms threaten the Central Plains and Mid-South. Meanwhile, the East Coast will be dry and cool, while the Northwest deals with a plethora of rain and mountain snow.

WeatherBug Meteorologist Kristin Clark has the latest in her exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.

Despite the recent cool weather, spring will make a noisy comeback in the central U.S. as developing low pressure trudges through the Central Plains and Upper Midwest. An associated cold front trailing south toward Texas will be the trigger for potentially severe thunderstorms firing up in the afternoon and evening in the Mid-South. These storms will have the potential to produce large hail, gusty winds and even isolated tornadoes from Missouri to northeastern Texas. However, the northern fringe of the same storm system will feature several inches of snow blanketing northern Minnesota.

Farther east, yesterday`s large coastal storm will be replaced by high pressure along the East Coast. While dry and mostly sunny conditions will be the norm, temperatures will continue to run cooler than average throughout the Eastern Seaboard.

More Pacific moisture will stream onshore to deliver another round of rain and mountain snow to the Northwest today. Umbrellas will come in handy for residents of Portland, Ore., and Seattle, while snow boots will be necessary in the higher elevations of the northern Rockies. The rest of the West Coast will be dry and cool, while the Desert Southwest will enjoy plentiful sunshine.

The coolest temperatures will invade the far Northern Tier, with 20s and 30s from northern New England to the Northern Plains. Milder 40s and 50s will dominate from the Mid-Atlantic to the Central Plains, then stretching into the Pacific Northwest. The Southeast will enjoy widespread temperatures in the 60s and low 70s, as will the Desert Southwest. Meanwhile, the warmest temperatures on Thursday will be found in Texas, where highs will surge into the 80s in the central and western part of the state.
