WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in her exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
Another wet day will be in store for the Eastern U.S. as a front quickly sweeps toward the Atlantic Seaboard. Scattered thunderstorms will stretch from the Northeast to the Lower Mississippi Valley, disrupting the recent stint of tranquil weather that encompassed locations in New England and the Mid-Atlantic. Furthermore, a pocket of severe storms will aim for New England, where damaging winds will be the main threat. Temperatures will range from the 80s in New England to the 90s in the Mid-Atlantic, Southeast and Lower Mississippi Valley.
A disturbance making its way into the Western U.S. will trigger several afternoon thunderstorms across the Rockies, Intermountain West and Northern Plains. Additionally, pockets of severe storms will threaten the Northern Rockies and western reaches of the Northern Plains. Widespread highs in the 90s will stretch along the Rockies, with a few locations reaching into triple digits.
Aside from dreary showers soaking the Pacific Northwest, the remainder of the U.S. will see a plethora of sunshine. Temperatures in the Midwest, Great Lakes and West Coast will be in the relatively cooler 70s and 80s while the Central and Southern Plains rise into the 90s and 100s. Blazing highs in the 100s and 110s will settle into the Southwest.
