|An area of the nation`s midsection that has been sweltering in the heat this summer will be the spotlight for threatening skies during the midweek. Meanwhile, the Northeast won`t be able to let its guard down from the early-week active weather pattern.|
WeatherBug Meteorologist Kristin Clark has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook video.
The central Plains to Mid-Mississippi Valley and Mid-South will wake up to showers and thunderstorms today. A few storms could put out large hail while the threat for damaging winds and possible tornadoes increases during the day across Missouri, northern Arkansas and the western Tennessee Valley.
New England will have to brace for another day of thunderstorms. Following morning sunshine, low pressure spinning across eastern Canada will help stir up the atmosphere enough to produce scattered afternoon storms. Large hail will be the main threat with any storms that light up the radar.
The northern Plains, northern Rockies and Deep South will be the other hiccup spots today. Hit-and-miss afternoon thunderstorms will dot the landscape, briefly interrupting any outdoor plans.
Sunshine will be in full-force across the West Coast, Great Basin, Southwest and Great Lakes to Mid-Atlantic.
Temperatures across the U.S. will vary south to north today. Highs will range from the 90s and lower 100s in the Southern Tier to the 80s in the Great Basin, Mountain West, Plains, Tennessee Valley and Mid-Atlantic. Pleasant 60s and 70s will be found in the Northwest, Midwest, Great Lakes, Ohio Valley, interior Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.
