|Storms and showers will douse parts of the East Coast as well as the high Plains and the Rocky Front Range today. The Southwest monsoon will supply a stream of clouds and showers northward while the rest of the West will enjoy a pristine summer day.|
WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
Seasonable temperatures and storms will be the rule across the Southeast where highs should warm into the mid-90s. The only relief from the heat will be in the form of afternoon showers and thunderstorms that pop-up from New Orleans to Atlanta.
Another cloudy and sticky day will greet the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. Highs in the 80s and mostly cloudy skies will be the story from Philadelphia to Boston. There is the chance for scattered afternoon showers and storms popping up and threatening outdoor plans.
The sweltering heat wave will continue to oppress the southern and central Plains. Highs will sprint into the triple digits from Texas to Nebraska under bright sunshine. A few strong storms will pop-up across the Dakotas and Minnesota. A couple isolated 110 degree highs are possible in the Oklahoma City area.
The summer monsoon will remain active as it transports clouds and scattered afternoon showers over the Southwest and into the Great Basin. Salt Lake City and Denver may flirt with a few afternoon storms while Phoenix will see partly cloudy skies. Highs will range from the mid-80s to the low 100s from Arizona to Colorado.
Elsewhere, another fine day is on tap from the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley all the way to the Pacific Coast. The Great Lakes will enjoy mostly sunny and seasonable conditions where highs reach into the 80s. The California coast will bask in sunny conditions as highs rise into the 60s and 70s. The Intermountain West and Northern Rockies will see temperatures rise into the 80s and 90s under sunny skies.
