The active weather that has plagued the Plains and Midwest will push eastward, bringing fresh thunderstorms and heavy rain to the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. Thunderstorms will also erupt aross the Southwest later today.

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

The Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Southeast will be greeted by booming thunderstorms and heavy rain. Flash flooding will be possible as heavy rain pummels locations from northern Virginia to Massachusetts. Temperatures will be cool across the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, where highs will only climb into the 70s and 80s. The Southeast will see thermometers tick a few notches farther; highs will be in the 80s and 90s here.

Showers and cooler weather will reside across the Great Lakes. High temperatures will only manage to make it into the 60s for Michigan`s Upper Peninsula, while others across the Great Lakes and Northern Plains will have highs in the 70s.

Most of the Plains will stay dry today, while storms will fire across South Texas. Afternoon temperatures will climb into the 80s and 90s from North Dakota to Kansas, but Oklahoma and Texas will need to crank up the AC with afternoon temperatures in the 90s and 100s.

Showers and storms will greet residents in the Northwest. Morning sunshine will allow temperatures to soar into the 80s and 90s from Montana to Oregon, which will create an energetic atmosphere and spark thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening hours.

Thunderstorms will also blossom from California to New Mexico. High temperatures will remain consistent with widespread 90s and some triple-digit readings across the Southwest.
