|Wet weather will once again be the top story across the U.S. as we head into the first day of August.|
Showers and thunderstorms will be seen across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic Friday as the next system pushes its way eastward. Temperatures will once again feel unseasonable cool as highs will run in the 70s and 80s.
Areas across the Southeast will also have to deal with thunderstorms for the end of the work week. Temperatures will remain near average, with highs across the region in the 80s and 90s.
A large pocket of mainly dry weather will stretch from across the Plains Friday. Areas across southern Texas and the Dakotas will be the two outliers, as thunderstorms will pop up across these areas. Temperatures will be steady from the Canadian Border to Texas; highs will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s.
Other dry spots will be found in two locales, the first stretching along the coastline of California and the other in the northwestern Great Lakes. Sunny skies will allow temperatures to skyrocket into the 90s and 100s for southern areas of California, while high temperatures for the rest of California and the Great Lakes will be in the 70s and 80s.
The Pacific Northwest will hang onto the heat Friday as showers and thunderstorms will bubble across interior areas of Washington and Oregon. Stormy and hot weather will also remain over the Southwest. High temperatures will remain in the 70s along the coast and climb into the 90s and 100s inland for the Northwest while the Southwest will be a few ticks warmer as afternoon temperatures reach the 100s.
