|The fireworks will continue today in the form of thunderstorms in the Appalachians and Southeast while the West cools, getting a break from the oppressive heat.|
WeatherBug Meteorologist Ashley O'Connor has the latest in her exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.
A stationary front situated from Arkansas to the southern Mid-Atlantic will separate summer-like heat and humidity to the south from cooler air to the north. Heavy showers and a few storms will produce more than an inch of rain from the Mid-South to Carolinas. A few severe thunderstorms will also be possible. Temperatures in the Southeast will be mostly in the upper-80s to low-90s with cooler low-80s in the Mid-Atlantic.
Splendid weather is in store for New England where skies will be mostly sunny with temperatures in the low-80s. Similar weather will greet the Midwest and Great Lakes.
A cold front passing across the northern Rockies and parts of the Pacific Northwest will result in a welcome abatement to the excessive heat. Much cooler temperatures will surge southward especially across Montana and western North Dakota on Sunday night.
This same front will likely produce a band of showers and storms for the northern Plains today. Large hail and destructive winds are possible in the more potent storms. Dry weather will allow outdoor barbecues to go off without a hitch south of Interstate 70 in the nation`s midsection. Temperatures will range from the upper-70s in the Northern Plains to the mid-90s in Texas.
Showers and thunderstorms are on the weather menu across the Four-Corners and in the Southwest in response to the summer monsoon. Temperatures in the Central Rockies and Great Basin will be in the 80s and 90s, and 60s in the Northern Rockies.
Scattered thunderstorms are possible across the higher elevations of northern California, Oregon, and Washington. Temperatures will range from the mid-60s in Coastal California to the 90s in interior California.
