|Early July weather will live up to its name across most of the U.S. for midweek. Heat, humidity, showers and even thunderstorms will pop up in the weather headlines from the West Coast to Mid-Atlantic and Carolinas.|
WeatherBug Meteorologist Ashley O'Connor has the latest in her exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
A stationary front draped from the Missouri Valley to the Mid-Atlantic will be the catalyst for pockets of heavy rain and thunderstorms. While the overall severe threat of high winds, hail and tornadoes will be limited to the Mid-Mississippi Valley, enough rain falling in a short time will cause the flood threat to rise today.
Showers and thunderstorms will once again ignite across the Intermountain West today. Salt Lake City and Denver will have to be on guard for dark skies after lunch time. A few thunderstorms will also pelt Florida and the Carolinas as well. Otherwise, the Northern-Tier, Deep South and most of the Southwest will escape the rain today.
Highs will zoom into the 90s across much of the U.S. Southern-Tier as well as the Northwest`s Columbia Basin. The typical hot spots in the U.S. include southern California and Arizona`s deserts where 100s will be the norm this afternoon.
Temperatures will reach the 70s and 80s for the remainder of the U.S., with pockets of 60s in the Sierra Nevada and higher peaks of the Rockies.
