Scattered showers and thunderstorms will pelt the East Coast and parts of the central U.S. on Wednesday, while the Southwest will see searing heat and the threat of wildfires.

East: A front moving toward the eastern seaboard will set off showers and storms. Temperatures will be in the muggy 80s and 90s for much of the region.

Rockies, High Plains: Scattered thunderstorms, some of which will be severe, are likely in the northern and central Rockies and western High Plains. Hail, high winds and some tornadoes are possible. More storms will rumble in the southern Plains.

West: Other than some showers along the Pacific Northwest coast, most of the rest of the West will be hot and dry. Wildfire danger will be high in the Southwest, especially in parts of Nevada, Utah and Arizona.

Weather history for June 25: In 1988, a heat wave scorched the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes region, as an all-time record high of 104 degrees was set in Cleveland. In 2004, a cold spell spread over the Midwest, with a record low of 42 degrees set in Lincoln, Neb.

In 2012, Tropical Storm Debby continued to swamp Florida. Jacksonville picked up over 7 inches of rain.
