Stormy and unruly weather will keep the Central U.S. and Southeast soaked this holiday weekend. The Mid-Atlantic and Southwest will be the locations competing for enjoyable spring sunshine.


A storm lingering in the Southeast will make for another day of dreary weather. Rain reaching from the Carolinas to Florida will put a damper on most outdoor plans while a few thunderstorms boom across southern Florida. Highs in the 60s will be common along the Carolinas` coasts while the rest of the interior Southeast and Florida heat up into the 70s and 80s.

Pockets of rain will douse the Upper Midwest to start off the weekend. Showers will extend from Michigan`s Upper Peninsula to western Minnesota. Umbrellas and rain gear will come in handy as the wet weather persists throughout the day. Temperatures will range from the 40s in Michigan`s Upper Peninsula and Minnesota`s Arrowhead to the 50s, 60s and 70s in the rest of the Upper Midwest and Mid-Mississippi Valley.

Once again, showers will invade the Pacific Northwest today. Temperatures along the coast will be in the upper 50s and 60s. The rest of the U.S. will see pleasant spring weather. Highs in the 50s and 60s will be felt in the Mid-Atlantic, Ohio Valley and Northern Plains while the Lower Mississippi Valley, Southern and Central Plains and West Coast heat up into the 70s. Sweltering highs in the upper 80s will stew in the Southwest.


Easter egg hunts may need to be brought indoors in the Central U.S. as a weather system brings rain and thunderstorms stretching from the Upper Midwest to the Southern Plains. Showers will soak the Upper Mississippi Valley, Mid-Mississippi Valley and eastern Central Plains while further south, thunderstorms soak the Southern Plains. Temperatures will be in the 60s in the Upper Midwest, rising into the 70s and 80s in the Mississippi Valley and the Plains.

The rest of the U.S. will have a pleasant spring day on Sunday. Highs in the 50s will be seen in the Northeast while the Mid-Atlantic feels temperatures reach the 60s. The Southeast, Tennessee Valley, Intermountain West, Rockies and West Coast will be in the 70s while the Southwest heats up into the 80s and lower 90s.
