Sweltering heat will bake the East Coast Tuesday while thunderstorms rattle the north-central states and some June snow whitens the northern Rockies

East: Most of the eastern third of the nation will see hot, humid weather Tuesday as highs soar into the 90s with only a few thunderstorms possible in the mountains and southern Florida.

Northern Plains, upper Midwest: More severe storms could unleash tornadoes in the north-central states Tuesday though hail and winds will be the main threats.

Northwest: The northwestern U.S. will be the nation's cool spot Tuesday, as highs remain only in the 50s and 60s in the Pacific Northwest. A few spots in the upper elevations of Montana will see some June snow, where up to two feet is possible.

Southwest: Blazing sunshine and dry conditions will lead to an elevated threat for wildfires in the Southwest, especially in Arizona and Utah.

Weather history for June 17: In 1978, a tornado capsized a boat in Lake Pomona, Kan., drowning 16 people. In 1995, the temperature soared to an all-time record of 99 degrees in International Falls, Minn.

In 2000, the temperature fell to a record low of 34 degrees in Casper, Wyo.
