The nation's weather

The Northeast will experience some scattered rains Sunday as a cold front pushes west to east from Virginia through Maine. Morning and afternoon rain will be followed by evening clearing as the front moves offshore.

Another area of precipitation will move through the Plains and may be accompanied by some strong thunderstorms and large hail. Texas, however, will not receive any rain, prolonging an already devastating drought.

In the West, scorching hot weather will prevail as a strong high pressure system dominates. Temperatures will remain well into the 100s, with some areas of the Southwest pushing above 110 degrees. Hot weather also will stretch into California, bringing summer conditions to the region after last week's unseasonably strong storm.

Temperatures in the Northeast will be in the 70s and 80s, while the Southeast and Southern Plains will see readings in the 90s and 100s. Temperatures in the Lower 48 states ranged Saturday from a morning low of 28 degrees at West Yellowstone, Mont., to a high of 113 degrees at Phoenix-Mesa, Ariz.
