|Tropical remnants will continue to douse parts of the Southwest today with heavy rain and flash flooding. Meanwhile, summer-like heat will build in the Plains as the Northeast chills out.|
WeatherBug Meteorologist Rob Koch has the latest in his exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.
The Southwest and southern Plains will be contending with more rain from what was Hurricane Odile. While the worst of the flooding appears to have ebbed, heavy rain and more flash flooding will be possible across southern New Mexico and West Texas. In fact, much of the Lone Star State will see chances for showers and thunderstorms, as will the southern Rockies. Highs will generally range from the 70s to 80s.
More shower and thunderstorm chances will also pepper parts of the Upper Midwest and Southeast. Temperatures will remain rather warm across the northern Plains and Mississippi Valley, with highs generally in the 70s and 80s. Further south, highs will also range the 70s and 80s from the Carolinas to Florida.
The coolest weather will be found in the Northeast and New England, with even some morning frost likely in parts of upstate New York and New England. Despite abundant afternoon sunshine, allowing temperatures to warm only into the 50s and 60s.
Along the Pacific Coast, there will be a few showers likely in the Northwest with highs in the 70s. Heading southward into California, temperatures will also warm to the 70s along the coast and 80s and 90s farther inland. Some morning clouds and drizzle will give way to afternoon sun in Southern California. The hottest temperatures will once again be found in the Desert Southwest as highs hit the middle 90s under partly cloudy skies.
