Refreshingly cool air will make for a lovely Wednesday in the Midwest and much of the Northeast while severe storms blast the south-central US and heat bakes the West.

Midwest, Northeast: Other than some morning rain showers along the immediate East Coast, a pleasant day is on tap for most of the Midwest, Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. Parts of New England will stay showery through the day. Temperatures will be in the 70s and 80s with low humidity.

Plains: Severe thunderstorms will bring hail, high winds and heavy rain to the central and southern Plains Wednesday. The worst weather is forecast in the Panhandles of Oklahoma and Texas and southeastern Colorado.

West: Afternoon thunderstorms will plague the Rockies and Southwest while most of the rest of the West stays hot and dry.
