Today's Weather Outlook
8 AM EDT, September 16, 2014
By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Chad Merrill
A pleasant autumn preview will invade the Upper Midwest, Great Lakes and Northeast today. Meanwhile, thunderstorms will punish the Southern Tier while more heat invades southern California.
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.
Following a frosty start in the Upper Great Lakes, temperatures will jump into the 60s for places like Rhinelander and Green Bay, Wis. Similar afternoon readings will encompass the eastern Ohio Valley, northern Mid-Atlantic into the Northeast.
Showers spinning around Hurricane Odile will make their way into the Southwest today. Phoenix and Tucson, Ariz., as well as Roswell and Glenwood, N.M., will see occasional downpours that could cause flash flooding problems. Rain will get enhanced by Arizona`s Mogollion Rim Country while the rain will be more scattered farther north into the Wasatch and Rockies.
The southern flank of a cold front will trigger showers and thunderstorms along the Gulf Coast into Florida. The heaviest rain will fall along and south of Interstate 10.
The remainder of the U.S., from California into the Great Basin and Northwest as well as the Plains to the East Coast will enjoy plentiful sunshine.
Today will be the final day of the excessive heat in southern California. Highs once again across the coastal valleys will jump into the lower 100s with a bit higher heat indices. Los Angeles will approach the century mark while San Diego will see upper 80s.
Besides 90-degree readings in the Sacramento Valley, the remainder of the West will see 50s, 60s and 70s. Temperatures will range from the 70s to the 80s in the Plains while 80s rule the Southeast.
