|The spring severe weather season will remain at full throttle across the nation's midsection for the middle of the week. Meanwhile, a summer preview will spread into much of the East Coast.|
WeatherBug Meteorologist Kristin Clark has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook Video.
Pockets of showers and thunderstorms will make for a soggy start across the northern and central Plains today. The weather system responsible for the stormy start will inch into the Mid-Mississippi Valley and Upper Midwest as the day unfolds.
Thunderstorms will break out between Interstates 70 and 90 across the nation`s midsection later this afternoon. A few could be severe with large, damaging hail and gusty winds in places like Wichita, Kan., Kansas City, Mo., and Des Moines, Iowa. Even Oklahoma and the Lone Star State could see a couple of potent thunderstorms by this evening's commute.
Following a bit of morning sun in the Sierra Nevada, Great Basin, Northwest and northern Rockies, hit-and-miss showers and thunderstorms will dot the landscape later today. The central Appalachians, southern Florida and northern New England will also have to deal with brief showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and evening as well.
Meanwhile, the West Coast, Southwest and much of the East Coast will see plenty of bright sunshine.
Temperatures will climb into the 80s and 90s from the Southwest into the central and southern Plains, Deep South, Tennessee Valley and Mid-Atlantic. It will be the first day this month for Philadelphia to see 80 degrees and the second day in May for the nation`s capital to hit the mark also.
Afternoon clouds and occasional rain will hold temperatures back into the 60s across the Intermountain West, while 70s graze the Northern-tier. The West Coast will enjoy comfortable upper 50s to middle 60s today.
