The U.S. will experience unsettled weather as fresh showers and thunderstorms look to invade for the first full day of summer.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Bryan Karrick has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
The central and southern Plains will be host to thunderstorms with heavy rain, gusty winds and hail ahead of a cold front. The Northern Plains will catch a break from the active weather; partly sunny skies will dominate the Dakotas and eastern Montana.
Temperatures will be on the warm side, with highs sizzling into the 90s across Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas; 70s and 80s will be found farther north across the Dakotas and Nebraska.
The heat and humidity will keep a firm grip on the Southeast today. A few locations might catch a break from the heat as afternoon and evening thunderstorms bubble up from the Mid-Atlantic to the Gulf Coast. High temperatures will remain in the 80s for the Mid-Atlantic and soar into the 90s across the Southeast.
The Northeast will enjoy pleasant weather to round out the weekend, with the only chance of showers found in Maine. Temperatures will be a notch cooler than the Mid-Atlantic with highs below average in the 70s and 80s.
The West Coast will also see benign weather today. Temperatures in the 60s and 70s will hug the coast but things will heat up across the interior California valleys, where 80s and 90s will be found. Farther east, cooler 60s and 70s will embrace the Mountain West.
The Southwest will be the jackpot for the hottest weather in the U.S. Sunny skies will allow temperatures to top out in the 100s and 110s.
