|Tuesday's Weather Outlook|

|A slowly-lumbering storm system will unleash heavy downpours and a new fresh batch of severe storms along the Gulf Coast Tuesday while Mother Nature treats much of the West, Plains and East to ample sunshine. |
The day will begin with thunder, lightning, gusty winds and heavy rain across the Mid-South to Lower Mississippi Valley. A cooler rain will embrace the southern Plains where places like Dallas and Oklahoma City will see 50s and a stiff northeast wind on the ride to school or work.
A cold front settling south and east across the Lower Mississippi Valley will trigger thunderstorms with damaging wind, hail and possibly a few tornadoes ahead of it. This means eastern Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle will have a rough afternoon of severe weather. The storms will be more hit-and-miss across central and southern Florida while along and north of Interstate 20 across the Southeast the weather will consist of dreary skies with occasional showers.
A storm clipping the Northwest will bring light rain to Seattle and Portland, Ore., while a few showers also clip northern Maine. In between those weather systems and north of the Gulf Coast storminess, quiet weather is on tap from California to the East Coast.
The Western U.S. will warm well into the 70s, with 80s and lower 90s sizzling the California valleys and Southwest. Chilly 30s and 40s will linger again Tuesday in the southern Rockies while 60s and 70s take up real estate from the southern Plains to the East Coast.
Pockets of 80s will remind the Upper Midwest that summer is just around the corner while in between storms in southern Florida, the mercury here will also climb into the 80s.
