Northeast - High pressure keeps much of the region dry through Saturday before a new frontal boundary increases rain chances late this weekend. Highs temperatures today will range from the 70s from eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey up to New England to the 80s across the rest of the Middle Atlantic region. We'll start to see showers and storms enter western New York and western Pennsylvania Saturday night. Showers and storms return for much of the region on Sunday as the next cold front moves in. Some wet weather lingers near coastal areas on Monday for Labor Day.

South - Showers and thunderstorms continue today along coastal sections of Texas and Louisiana as impulses continue to ride up into the Gulf of Mexico. Thunderstorm activity will also increase along the Gulf Coast and parts of the Florida Peninsula. Scattered storms for parts of north Texas into Oklahoma and Arkansas from a disturbance moving through the Plains. Heat and humidity will spread across the region. Today's highs will be mostly in the 90s (with some 80s along the Southeast Coast and in Virginia. After some nice weather recently, showers and storms overtake the Southeast on Saturday. Scattered storms linger for the Southeast on Sunday as dry weather takes hold for the southern Plains. It will continue to feel rather summery across the South through the first week of September.

Midwest - Showers and storms will focus from eastern Kansas to Minnesota and Wisconsin today as an upper trough slowly advances through the Midwest. Localized flooding is possible in areas that receive the heavy rain. Rainfall of 1-3 inches with locally higher amounts can be expected. Today's highs will range from the 70s from the Upper Midwest to the Great Lakes up to the 90s from Kansas to the Ohio Valley. The next weather system produces thunderstorms, some severe, late Saturday for the western Dakotas. More significant severe weather develops by Sunday afternoon from eastern Nebraska and western Iowa to southern Minnesota (hail, damaging winds and a few tornadoes). This system continues to march eastward with storms, some severe, on Monday from the Great Lakes to the mid-MS Valley.

West - As a trough of low pressure aloft moves away from the region, dry conditions will prevail. There will be some showers or thunderstorms over parts of northern and western Washington, eastern Montana and Wyoming and in the mountains of central Colorado. Marie will dissipate and high surf along the California Coast will relax as a result. The rip current threat will continue along the California Coast. Temperatures Friday will be coolest in the higher Rocky mountains with highs in the 60s. Much of the region will see highs in the 80s to low 90s but cooler 70s along the coast and 90s to lower 100s in the deserts. Much of the West quiet into the weekend with scattered showers and storms most concentrated from Montana to Colorado. A few storms may turn severe Saturday for eastern Montana into northeast Wyoming.
