|Thursday's Weather Outlook|

|The active weather pattern that has harassed the U.S. this week will fittingly hang around for the second half of the work week as well.|
Showers and thunderstorms will dominate the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast. Two small pockets will however see rain free skies, including locations from Washington D.C. to Cincinnati and along the Gulf of Mexico Coast. Highs will climb into the 80s and 90s for the Southeast and remain in the 70s and 80s for the Mid-Atlantic.
The Northeast and Great Lakes will see a cloudy end of the work week with widespread rain and showers. Highs will be found in the 70s for the Northeast with a few 80s sneaking in along the coast. Farther westward from Ohio to Minnesota, 70s and 80s will also reside.
Hot temperatures hang around in the Northwest Coast Thursday and thunderstorms will roam across the Northern Tier. The Pacific Ocean will hold high temperatures in the low 70s along the coast, but locations further inland and across the Northern Tier will see the mercury approach the century mark.
High pressure will slide eastward Friday and provide Central Plains with a much needed break from the recent active weather. However, the Southern Plains will see another day of widespread precipitation. High temperatures will climb into the 80s across Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma while southern Texas will inch near the 100 degree mark.
The Southwest will see another typical mid-summer day. Afternoon thunderstorms will bubble across New Mexico and the Intermountain West; otherwise mostly sunny skies will allow temperatures to dash into the 90s and 100s from the valleys of southern California to New Mexico.
