|The first day back to work and school following the long holiday weekend will be stormy for the East but the West will remain brilliant under plentiful sunshine. The only weather hiccup west of the Rockies will be the Northwest.|
A cold front will be the focal point for scattered rain and thunderstorms across the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Ohio Valley, with isolated strong to severe storms with gusty winds possible. The rain should hold off until the evening and overnight hours along and east of the I-95 corridor in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.
Scattered pop-up showers and thunderstorms could interrupt outdoor plans briefly in the Southeast and along the Gulf Coast mainly during the afternoon and evening.
Aside from some scattered showers in the upper Northwest and east-central Plains, the western and central U.S. will be dry and mostly sunny.
Highs in the 70s to middle 80s will be found across the Northeast, Midwest and northern Plains, with highs in the 60s and 70s in the Northwest and along the immediate West Coast. Temperatures will peak in the 90s in the southern Mid-Atlantic and Southeast, with highs in the 90s and 100s in the southern Plains and the Desert Southwest. The higher elevations of the Southwest will see highs in the 80s.
