|More chances for severe storms will be on tap Friday, this time in the western High Plains, while unsettled weather covers much of the East for one last day. Cooler weather will slide southward into the U.S. while the heat remains in place along the Southwest and Gulf Coast.|
This is the season for severe weather, and Friday will be no exception to the rule as severe thunderstorms develop east of Denver, from Nebraska to Kansas. Very large hail and damaging winds will be the main threats as storms blossom in the afternoon heat. More garden-variety thunderstorms and showers will bring rain to a good chunk of the Plains from the Dakotas to Texas. Highs will range from the 60s along the Canadian border to the 90s in southern Texas.
Along the east, the slow-moving storm system that brought the devastating tornado to Oklahoma this week is finally making its exit. Along it, scattered showers and thunderstorms will still cover a good portion of the Eastern Seaboard from New England to the Carolinas.
Some showers and storms will also dot the landscape in the Appalachians and South Florida as well. High temperatures will range from the 50s in upstate New York and interior New England, to the 60s from Washington D.C., to Boston. Farther south, highs will warm to the 70s and 80s in the Southeast, with Miami hitting the lower 90s.
Elsewhere, it will be cool but sunny in the western Great Lakes and Ohio Valley, with highs in the 50s and 60s. The Pacific Northwest will be showery and cool with highs in the 60s, as coastal California enjoys sunshine and temperatures in the 60s and 70s. The warmest weather will be in the Desert Southwest, with highs into the upper 90s to near 100 degrees in locations.
