Storm Central
Today's Weather Outlook
UPDATED 8:45 AM EDT, May 28, 2015
UPDATED By WeatherBug Sr. Meteorologist, James West
Scattered thunderstorms will be commonplace throughout much of the country today, with the most severe storms expected within the Southern Plains and west Central Plains.

WeatherBug Meteorologist Todd Nelson has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.

Instability moving in behind a Bermuda high will bring the chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms to the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. Temperatures in the mid to upper 80s, with heat indices between 90 to 95 degrees will bring no relief for those spending time outdoors. Meanwhile, slow moving thunderstorms will bring gusty winds and heavy rain. The Ohio Valley and the Great Lakes will enjoy sunshine and less humidity with temperatures in the 70s and 80s.

Floridians will experience more East winds, increasing the threat for rip currents on the eastern shoreline. Sunshine continues throughout the Sunshine State. A sea breeze will bring moderate to heavy showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon before dissipating in the evening. Temperatures will remain in the high 80s to low 90s.

Severe thunderstorms will be possible in western Kansas, Texas, and Oklahoma. Gulf moisture will spread across the Central and South Plains feeding more downpours and thunderstorms. The rain falling across an already saturated southern Plains will bring more flooding problems to places like Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas. Temperatures will remain in the low 80s.

In the Intermountain West, scattered showers and thunderstorms once again will fire in the afternoon hours. Temperatures will remain cool in the 70s. Thunderstorms will be more widespread throughout Montana as a cold front drops down from Alberta.

The most pleasant conditions will remain in California, Washington State, Oregon, and the Desert Southwest. Highs will be in the upper 90s to near 100 in Southern Arizona, and slightly cooler in California. Foggy conditions will be found along the California coast from Los Angeles to San Francisco. Temperatures in Coastal California and the Northwest will be in the upper 60s to low 70s.
