Severe storms will rattle the Upper Midwest today as Mother Nature cranks up the heat across the Plains.

WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.

Much of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic will see isolated showers and thunderstorms, although New England should stay mostly dry. Scattered rain and storms are expected across most of the Southeast. Highs will be in the middle 70s to middle 80s in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, with highs in the middle 80s to lower 90s in the Southeast.

The Great Lakes will have tranquil weather as highs reach the middle 80s to lower 90s, but some late-day and overnight storms could impact the westernmost lakes.

Severe thunderstorms will develop across the northern Plains and Upper Midwest, with the greatest storm risk over the eastern Dakotas, Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Damaging winds will be the primary threat from these storms. More isolated showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop across the central and southern High Plains during the afternoon and evening hours. North Dakota will be spared the highest heat as temperatures reach the middle 80s to lower 90s, but the rest of the Plains will bake with highs in the middle 90s to 100s.

Isolated showers and storms are also expected to develop across the parts of the Southwest, Northwest and northern Rockies. Highs will reach the triple-digits in the Desert Southwest, with highs in the 80s and 90s in the higher elevations of the Southwest. Most of the Northwest will see highs in the 70s and 80s as highs along the West Coast stay in the 60s and 70s.
