Friday's Weather Outlook
4 PM EDT, May 5, 2016
By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Mike Hertz
Like a broken record, both East and West coasts remain unsettled as warmth continues to build across the nation's mid-section Friday.

A pesky low-pressure system will continue to pose problems from the Carolinas through Southern New England. This will bring periods of rain all day. Temperatures will range from 65 to70 degrees across the Carolinas, and struggle to get out of the 50s across New York City and Northeast

The Ohio Valley, Mississippi Valley, Missouri and Tennessee valleys will be absolutely gorgeous under plenty of sunshine with highs ranging from the mid-70s to the lower 80s.

A dip in the pool should definitely be on the agenda for the Northern and Southern Plains as temperatures here will be the warmest in the U.S. Friday. Brownsville, Texas, and Western Kansas may see 90 degrees.

Picture-perfect weather will extend from the Northern Plains, down to the Deep South, and Southeast. Temperatures will range in the 70s and 80s which are slightly above-normal for this time of year.

The Rockies, Mountain West, and parts of the Pacific Northwest will once again see showers and thunderstorms as a storm system remains stationery. A few storms may produce hail. A light jacket will be needed as the rain brings cooler 60s and 70s.

California and the Desert Southwest will also see a few afternoon pop-up showers and thunderstorms Cool 60s will be found in Southern California while 70s and 80s heat Arizona and New Mexico.
