|Summer will remain in full swing across the U.S. with plenty of hot weather and patches of storms.|
WeatherBug Meteorologist Kristin Clark has the latest in her exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
Although the start of meteorological autumn is officially underway, the only places that will feel the crisp chill of the new season will be the Northwest. Here, showers moving east off the Pacific will keep things 5 to 10 degrees colder than normal. Highs will struggle to get out of the upper 60s and into the low 70s.
The flip side of the coin will be the Southwest and a large stretch of the western high Plains from southern Texas northward into the Dakotas. Highs will easily eclipse 100 degrees in desert regions of the Southwest and extreme southern Texas, with high 90s found throughout the high Plains. Outside of a few late-afternoon thunderstorms across the southern Rockies and Four Corners, the day will be mostly sunny.
The rest of the U.S. will see afternoon temperatures in the upper 80s and 90s, with only a few cool upper 70s and low 80s across the northern Rockies. Most places will be sunny, with only a few afternoon thunderstorms found across the western Great Lakes, central Appalachians, the Gulf Coast and Florida.
