UPDATED By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Mike Marston
The middle of the week will be dominated by typical summertime thunderstorms and warmth across the U.S.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.
The Southeast and Mid-Atlantic will be at it again today, with Gulf of Mexico moisture triggering a rash of downpours and thunderstorms. A few of which could become severe, packing isolated damaging wind gusts and large hail. Even parts of the Ohio Valley, eastern Great Lakes, and northern Appalachian Spine will be at risk for a few afternoon and evening powerful thunderstorms as well. Even so, the mercury will climb well into the 80s and 90s with high humidity make it feel even more uncomfortable.
The interior Northeast and Great Lakes will also be peppered by downpours and thunderstorms as well for mid-week. The only exceptions will be across the western Great Lakes and New England, where a mix of sunshine and clouds and comfortable temperatures will prevail. Temperatures will climb into the 70s and 80s today.
Not to be out-classed, much of the western High Plains and Upper Midwest as well as the northern and central Rockies will be bombarded by heavy downpours and thunderstorms later today. A few of them from western Texas to southwestern Minnesota could pack damaging wind gusts, large hail, and even a few tornadoes. Highs will generally top out in the 70s and 80s from Utah to Missouri, with 90s and triple digits dominating Texas; cool 50s and 60s will be common from the Rockies to the northern Plains.
The Southwest will finally get some relief from the heat, even if just a slight breather. Skies will still be crystal clear and highs will remain in the 90s and 100s from southern Nevada to New Mexico.
The Northwest will see partly cloudy skies and high temperatures in the 60s along the coast and 70s inland.
