Midwest - Repeated rounds of showers thunderstorms continue from the central Plains to the western Great Lakes today.- Heavy rain (1-3 inches, locally 3-5 inches) will fall causing localized flooding from Wisconsin to Iowa, eastern Nebraska into parts of Kansas. Highs today will range from the 70s in the Great Lakes to the 80s elsewhere, a few 90s possible Kentucky to southern Missouri and southern Kansas. Showers and storms continue, stray severe with heavy rain, Great Lakes to MS Valley and eastern Plains on Friday. A more significant severe threat may develop north-central Plains late Saturday into Sunday.

South - Weak low in the northwest Gulf of Mexico enhances showers and storms near the coast of Texas and Louisiana today. This low is not expected to develop as it works inland into Texas this afternoon. High pressure dominates most of the region keeping it dry for many today. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible from coastal Texas to coastal Alabama, as well as the Florida peninsula. Rough surf and a high risk of rip currents continues along the Southeast coast from northern Florida to the Outer Banks from distant Hurricane Cristobal. The surf and rip current threat should gradually lower from south to north through Friday. A few storms develop along a dry line for West Texas and western Oklahoma today. Temperatures will generally get into the 90s across the region. Showers and storms increase for the southern Plains into Arkansas on Friday and then overtake much of the Southeast this weekend.

Northeast - High pressure settles in across the region behind an exiting cold front today and Friday bringing dry conditions to most. The exception could be upstate New York into the Mountains of northern New England where a few brief showers are possible. Highs temperatures today will range from the 70s from western Pennsylvania to central New England, with 80s from southern New England down to Virginia and West Virginia. Dry weather persists for most through Saturday, but some showers and storms work into western New York and Pennsylvania later Saturday night. Showers and storms return for much of the region on Sunday as a new cold front moves in.

West - A few storms are still possible today for Southeast Wyoming, Colorado and northeast New Mexico, but not as numerous as the last couple of days. The rest of the region will be generally dry. Marie weakening rapidly in the eastern Pacific, but large waves generated by it reaching the Southern California coast begin to diminish on Thursday. Dangerous rip currents are also likely due to the large swells. High temperatures Thursday will be coolest in central and east Colorado with highs in the 60s and 70s. Much of the region will see highs in the 80s today, 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 northern Wyoming.
