Severe thunderstorms and possible tornadoes will thrash portions of the central U.S. Tuesday while extreme heat bakes the Southwest.

Central U.S.: Severe storms are forecast to batter the central Plains and mid-Mississippi Valley Tuesday, with the biggest threats in eastern Nebraska, southern Iowa and northern Missouri. Flooding rain, damaging winds, large hail and tornadoes are all possible.

Southwest, southern Plains: Intense heat will sear much of the southwestern U.S. Tuesday, as high temperatures rocket into the upper 90s and low 100s. Some record highs are possible.

East: A few showers and non-severe thunderstorms will drench portions of the eastern third of the nation.

Weather history for June 3: In 1860, a tornado raked the Midwest, killing 175 people. Winds were estimated at 300 mph.

In 1998, while a heat wave baked Texas -- where the temperature hit 111 degrees in Midland -- almost 3 inches of snow fell in Rapid City, S.D.
