Today's Weather Outlook
9 AM EDT, August 3, 2014
By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Chad Merrill
Not much change in the overall U.S. weather pattern is expected to round out the weekend. The East Coast will be dealing with pockets of heavy rain while more flooding threatens the Southwest.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Addison Green has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.
Just like Saturday, beach-goers from Florida to the Northeast will be greeted by rain rather than sunshine. Downpours will be heavy enough to cause flooding problems along the Carolina Coast. Thunder rumbles and showers will even greet the interior Mid-Atlantic and New England.
More showers and storms will plague places like Las Vegas, Phoenix and Salt Lake City on Sunday. The slow-moving nature of the heavy rain on fire scarred areas will increase the flash flooding potential in the Southwest.
Rain will be much more hit-and-miss farther north across the Northern Rockies on Sunday. Meanwhile, the West Coast and Plains will see dry weather to round out the weekend. Only a few showers could briefly dampen outdoor plans in the Northern Plains and Great Lakes.
Highs will jump into the 80s and 90s in the West. The other exceptions will be the Sierra, Wasatch and Rocky peaks where highs will only be in the 60s.
East of the Rockies, temperatures will warm into the 80s with 90s in southern Texas and Florida. Cooler 70s will keep air conditioners from going into overdrive in the Upper Mississippi Valley, Midwest, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.
