|All eyes will be on the Gulf of Mexico as Tropical Storm Debby strengthens offshore. Heat and humidity will invade the central U.S., while a cold front dropping southward from Canada brings showers and thunderstorms to the East.|
WeatherBug Meteorologist Gretchen Mishek has the latest in her exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
Tropical Storm Debby is the newest feature on the weather map, and even as it drifts northward through the central Gulf of Mexico, it will throw its bands of soaking rain at the eastern Gulf Coast from Florida to Louisiana, helping to alleviate some drought conditions. Additional showers will cover the interior Southeast as well.
Temperatures across the Southeast will reach into the upper 80s and low 90s, including New Orleans and Charlotte, N.C.
Across the Plains, hot and humid weather will cover the region from Texas to the Dakotas. With bright sunshine, temperatures will warm from the mid-70s across the Dakotas to near 100 degrees in the Central and Southern Plains.
A meandering cold front will bring scattered thunderstorms to the Northeast, with the potential for gusty winds and heavy rain to interrupt an otherwise serene day from the Great Lakes to the Mid-Atlantic. Here, temperatures will range from the 70s across the far Northern Tier to near 90 in the Mid-Atlantic.
A couple showers may fall in the afternoon across the Pacific Northwest. The Intermountain West and Northern Rockies will also see mostly sunny skies and hot conditions as highs rise into the 90s, even touching triple digits in a few locations. California looks sunny and warm with highs in the 60s and 70s along the coast. Farther inland, temperatures will increase quickly, with 90s and triple digits in the California deserts and Southwest.
