|The weekend will finish with splashes of rain in parts of the West and East while the nation`s midsection dries out from Saturday`s downpours.|
WeatherBug Meteorologist Mace Michaels has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
The same cold front that triggered storms in the Upper Midwest on Saturday will head for the East Coast. Sunshine early today will give way to a few showers and perhaps a thunder rumble in places like Portland, Maine, Syracuse, N.Y., and Pittsburgh. The rain will arrive late in the evening along the populated Interstate 95 corridor.
While the Southeast will enjoy sunshine, southern Florida won`t be so lucky. Miami and Fort Myers, Fla., will have to bring outdoor activities inside as showers and thunderstorms pass through during the day.
A few wind-whipped showers will spread across the Great Lakes and Upper Midwest early in the day while high pressure brings deep blue skies to the central and southern Plains.
The only other weather hiccups will be across the Great Basin, Mountain West and Southwest. Here, downpours will develop during the prime afternoon heating. The heaviest rain will soak West Texas and eastern New Mexico where flooding will once again be a problem.
Meanwhile, the West Coast will see dry weather today.
The Southwest and California valleys will warm into the 90s while 80s dominate the far Southern Tier today. A few warm 80s will also be seen in the Columbia River Basin while 60s and 70s rule the remainder of the U.S. Crisp, autumn-like 50s will rule northern Minnesota.
