Big storms will hammer parts of the central U.S. Wednesday while scorching temperatures will bring a mid-summer feel to much of the nation.

Plains, Midwest: Severe thunderstorms are forecast to lash the northern Plains and upper Midwest. Strong winds, large hail and some tornadoes are possible. The central and southern Plains will see plenty of sunshine and blistering heat in the 90s and low 100s.

Southeast: The other soggy spot Wednesday will be the southeastern U.S., due to scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Humidity will remain high.

West: Most of the western half of the U.S. will be hot and dry Wednesday.

Weather history for Sept. 3: In 1935, the "Labor Day" hurricane hit Tampa a day after lashing the Keys. In all, more than 400 people were killed by the hurricane in Florida. In 1961, more than 4 inches of snow fell in Denver, the earliest significant snowfall on record.

In 1970, a hailstone measuring 17.5 inches in diameter -- and weighing 1.7 pounds -- fell in Coffeyville, Kan. It was the largest on record at the time, but the record has since been broken.
