|The nation`s midsection will continue to get pummeled with rain and thunderstorms today, while many areas of the country keep heating up. |
WeatherBug Meteorologist Susie Martin has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook Video.
There is only a marginal risk of severe thunderstorms over the Midwest and Southeast. Western Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas can expect a few scattered thunderstorms this morning that will dissipate as the day goes on. Other storms will form later in the day from the Texas Big Bend into central Oklahoma, eastern Kansas and western Missouri. One or two that ignite along the eastern Gulf Coast could contain brief, heavy downpours and gusty winds.
A few big storms today will slide into the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes. Iowa, southern Minnesota and western Wisconsin should look out for isolated severe thunderstorms later today.
The North Carolina and Virginia coasts should expect to see some rain from Bonnie`s storm system but the rest of the East Coast will see a good deal of sunshine.
Most of the country will experience summer-like temperatures. Bakersfield, Calif. and Phoenix will hit temperatures that will near the century mark while Mobile, Ala., and New Orleans take a run into the mid-90s. Highs will reach into the 60s and 70s from the Mountain West into the Central and Northern Plains and Upper Great Lakes.
Meanwhile, highs in the 80s will be prevalent in the interior Northwest, Southern Plains, Tennessee and Ohio valleys and much of the East Coast.
