The nation's weather

Scattered thunderstorms will rumble across parts of the East on Sunday for a second day. Thunderstorms are possible from the upper Midwest through the Eastern seaboard to New England and New York. Some areas may get several inches of rain.

Meanwhile, the long-lasting heat wave that has produced well over a month's worth of 100-plus degree heat in the Southern plains will continue with a forecast high of 106 degrees in the Dallas area. No immediate relief is expected for Texas and heat advisories are posted from Texas through South Carolina.

The West will be dry, with the warmest temperatures likely in the Southwest. Low coastal clouds will continue to keep the immediate coast cool, while inland areas will rise into the 80s and 90s.

Temperatures in the Southeast and Southern plains will rise into the 90s and 100s, while the Northeast will see readings in the 80s and some 90s. The mercury on the Northern plains will rise into the 70s and 80s, while the Northwest will see temperatures in the 70s and 80s. The Southwest will rise into the 90s and 100s. Temperatures in the lower 48 states Saturday have ranged from a morning low of 33 degrees at Truckee, Calif. to a high of 108 degrees at Frederick, Okla.
