Thursday's Weather Outlook
3 PM EDT, July 23, 2014
By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Mike Marston
Clashes of lightning and booming thunder will dominate the U.S. as the workweek enters its second half.
A departing front will drape showers and storms from the Northeast to the Mid-Atlantic Thursday. High temperatures will be in the 70s and 80s west of the Appalachians, but along the coast and stretching southward to the Mid-Atlantic the mercury will climb into the 90s.
The Southeast and Southern Plains will feel temperatures above average for this time of the year. Abundant sunshine will help temperatures skyrocket into the 90s across the Southeast while many locations from Texas to Oklahoma will feel triple digit heat.
Severe storms producing hail and high winds will dot the terrain from eastern Montana to western North Dakota. Meanwhile, the Central Plains will have to deal with another day of the sizzling heat. High temperatures will soar into the triple digits across Colorado and Kansas while surrounding locations will be fortunate enough to stay in the 90s.
Thunderstorms will even have a tough time cooling off the Southwest. Afternoon temperatures will reach into the 110s for southern Calif. and Arizona; across Nevada and New Mexico 90s and 100s will dictate.
The Great Lakes and Pacific Northwest will be the cool spots Thursday. Rainy conditions will accompany the cool weather across the Northwest, while endless sunshine will bless the Great Lakes. Temperatures will steady in the 70s in the afternoon from Lake Erie to Lake Superior, while the Northwest will settle in the 60s and 70s.
