The nation’s weather

Weather Underground Forecast for Thursday, August 29, 2013. No tropical development is expected through the tropical Atlantic Ocean Thursday, but as the peak of the hurricane season approaches, the weather over the Atlantic Ocean is showing signs of increasing tropical activity.

A small, but active, storm will move through the Dakotas and into the Upper Midwest. This storm will have a moderate amount of moisture associated with it and thus will produce areas of moderate to heavy rain from North Dakota through northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

Meanwhile, a front will move along the Southeast Coast, providing showers and thunderstorms from Virginia through South Carolina. This front will move into the Southeast as the day progresses, and thus rain will diminish from north to south.

In the West, a Pacific storm will approach the Northwest, where rain is expected for western areas of Washington and Oregon.

The middle of the country will remain dry as a high pressure ridge remains over the region.

The Northeast will rise into the 70s and 80s, while the Southeast will see temperatures in the 80s and 90s. The Plains will rise into the 90s and 100s, while the Southwest will see similar temperatures. The Northwest will rise into the 70s and 80s.

Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Wednesday have ranged from a morning low of 35 degrees at Truckee-Tahoe, Calif. to a high of 102 degrees at Glendale Luke AFB, Ariz.
