|The Midwest continues to experience unfavorable weather while other parts of the U.S. keep heating up.|
The South and Central Plains, Middle Mississippi Valley, and Colorado will experience rain and scattered thunderstorms that will dissipate during the day only to pick up in the evening. As the day goes on those storms will spread to the east and hit the Mid-Atlantic and southern Florida, bringing a few scattered showers and storms.
A low pressure system over the Upper Great Lakes and Upper Mississippi Valley will bring cooler temperatures. This area should look for highs from the upper 50s to the low 70s. This system will also provide a good set up for storms that could produce gusty winds and a little bit of hail.
The nation`s midsection will experience temperatures in the mid- 60s to lower 70s. Meanwhile, the Mid-Atlantic and North east will be exposed to warmer temperatures ranging from the upper 70s to low 80s.
The southern half of the country will remain relatively dry and continue to heat up. California and the Pacific Northwest will experience temperatures in the upper 80s to low 90s. Places in Arizona will experience temperatures in the 100s.
There is an Excessive Heat Watch in effect for the Southwest. If you are in places in or near Las Vegas, Phoenix, Palm Springs, Calif., and San Bernardino, Calif. make sure you limit your time outside and stay hydrated.
