Today's Weather Outlook

The soggy weather from the weekend will carry over into the start of the new work week along the East Coast and for large stretches of the West. The Plains will enjoy another dry day.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.
Low pressure meandering along the Carolina Coast will be the spark that fuels more showers and storms. Once again, clouds and rain will deter beach plans from the Virginia Tidewater to Florida`s East Coast.
The rain will even make for a soggy ride home from work in places like Raleigh and Charlotte, N.C., Columbia, S.C., and Richmond, Va. The Deep South will also see a smattering of afternoon thunderstorms.
A few showers across the Great Basin will expand through the Southwest and Mountain West during the day. A few thunderstorms could drop locally heavy downpours as well.
The Central U.S. won`t need the rain gear however. High pressure will bring dry weather from Dallas to Minneapolis. The only hiccup spots will be the Midwest and Great Lakes. Here, weak low pressure will fuel a few brief afternoon showers and thunderstorms.
Toasty 90s will bake the Columbia River Valley, interior California, the Southwest and Central U.S. A few spots in eastern Washington and southern Arizona will briefly peak in the lower 100s.
Clouds and showers will hold temperatures back into the 60s and 70s in the Great Basin and Mountain West. Meanwhile, 70s and 80s will stretch from the Northern Plains to the Carolinas, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast today.
