Northeast

A big, slow-moving coastal low looks more likely to impact the region Thursday and into Friday with plenty of rain and grey weather possibly as late as into the start of the weekend. Beautiful weather returns for later Friday (for southern New England and New York) and Saturday (for Boston and southeastern New England), with no rain expected until the early-to-middle part of next week.

East Central

The rain and cooler weather over North Carolina and the Virginia Tidewater will spread north on Wednesday, keeping I-95 and eastward from roughly Wilmington, Delaware on south on the cloudy side. Rain spreads north into the Delmarva Peninsula on Wednesday afternoon and into Wednesday night, and moves into Delaware, Maryland and New Jersey for Thursday. Slow clearing with more beautiful weather – and temperatures in the 80s for much of the region – return for the weekend.

Southeast

Our developing coastal low pushes northward away from the region this morning, with just a few coastal showers and storms likely for the next few days. A frontal boundary remains draped over central and south Florida, bumping up rain chances for the area through Thursday. Things should mostly be dry through the rest of the region for the next few days, with comfortable temperatures in the 80s and relatively low dew points for most of South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi.

South

Expect another nice day in parts of the South as highs rise into the low to mid-80s area wide. Expect drier air in place too, with mostly sunny skies.

Central Plains

An upper level system will bring a few more showers and storms to Nebraska, Kansas, and Iowa today as Missouri looks to stay generally dry. Temperatures will start off in the 50s in most spots. High temperatures will be cooler east and warmer west. Expect highs in the 80s across central and western Nebraska and Kansas with points east looking at highs in the 70s including Iowa and Missouri.

Great Lakes

Cloud cover and scattered showers will continue across Minnesota early this morning. A few could push into Wisconsin this afternoon, but otherwise, high pressure will keep the region clear and dry. Low temperatures will start off in the 50s in the north and 40s in the south and east. Sunshine will warm most of the Great Lakes region into the 70s. Chances for rain will keep highs in the upper 60s.

High Plains

A few early morning clouds are possible in the Dakotas, but the entire region is likely to see sunshine this afternoon. The only downside, dry, warm, and breezy conditions will enhance the fire risk across Montana. Lows will start the morning in the 40s and 50s. Widespread sunshine will warm highs well above normal. Look for 70s, 80s, and even a few low 90s.

(FORECAST: Pierre | Bismarck | Cody | Billings)

Four Corners

Drier air looks to take a hold the majority of the Four Corners region today as a ridge of high pressure builds in. Though some lingering moisture and instability will keep rain chances around across New Mexico. Morning lows will range from the 40s in Flagstaff to the 50s in Denver. Salt Lake City looks to bottom out around 60 degrees this morning while Phoenix and Tucson will start the day in the 70s. It’ll be hot around Phoenix and Tucson today with highs around 100 degrees. Expect highs in the 80s in Salt Lake City, Denver, and Albuquerque.

California/Nevada

A few early morning clouds are possible in the Dakotas, but the entire region is likely to see sunshine this afternoon. The only downside, dry, warm, and breezy conditions will enhance the fire risk across Montana. Lows will start the morning in the 40s and 50s. Widespread sunshine will warm highs well above normal. Look for 70s, 80s, and even a few low 90s.

(FORECAST: Las Vegas | Los Angeles | San Francisco | Reno)

Northwest

A front will bring tropical moisture to Oregon and Washington today. So expect a wet day anywhere from the Washington/Oregon coastline to areas east of the Cascades. Idaho will remain nice and dry with lots of sunshine expected through the afternoon. Temperatures this morning will generally be in the 50s though Portland, Seattle, and Boise will start today off around 60 degrees. It’ll be cool today for areas west with highs in the 60s west of the Cascades while Idaho looks to remain warm with highs in the 80s to around 90 degrees.
