Today's Weather Outlook
7:45 AM EDT, September 1, 2015
By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Chad Merrill
Sunblock will be needed for outdoor enthusiasts across large stretches of the U.S. heading into the first day of September. Only a few drips and drabs will have people scurrying for an umbrella or rain jacket.

WeatherBug Meteorologist Kristin Clark has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook Video.

Showers and thunderstorms will once again pop up across the Sunshine State but the activity will be localized, so not every Florida resident will see a downburst of rain. Rain will be scattered across the Lower Mississippi Valley and Texas Coast with a few afternoon rumbles in the Southwest and southern Rockies.

The only other soggy spot will be the Northwest Coast. Low pressure will bring light rain to Seattle and Portland, Ore., with a bit heavier intensity to the northern Cascades.

Morning fog will give way to sunshine along the California Coast with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies for the remainder of the Interior West. The Plains to East Coast will see dry weather, with the exception of a few light showers in the central Plains and Midwest.

A quiet pattern with ample sunshine will spell a warm day for much of the U.S. Highs will push into the 80s to lower 90s from the Rocky Front Range through the Plains into the Southern Tier. The East Coast will see 70s in New England with 80s in the Mid-Atlantic. Typical early-September 90s and lower 100s will bake the Southwest while 60s and 70s rule much of the western U.S.

The UV Index will be high along and south of Interstate 70 across the U.S., so don`t forget to apply the sunblock!
