"...the bright side of every day."

8:40 AM EDT 4/29/12 (Forecasters Mike N. and Mr. Foot) - It's a stormy sandwich across the country heading into the new work week. As the band of scattered showers moves out to sea Saturday night, nice weather will enter into the east and the west, while the center stays stormy. This weekend also provided a brighter side to weather for those visiting the Science & Engineering Festival in Washington, DC. Our team has had a blast working together sharing passion for weather and education outreach together with the many parents and students at the event. We hope you can stop by to see us if you're at the festival. 

EAST- Some clouds will be around to start the day Sunday, but many regions from Boston to Orlando will see a nice day! The exception lies in the Carolinas were a few scattered showers and storms are possible. South of Orlando though, a slew of tropical moisture is making for an unfortunately wet weekend for readers or vacationers in our South Florida & The Keys zone. Check there for more details on the influx of tropical moisture and when it will pull out! For those visiting the USA science and engineering festival in Washington D.C., you can look forward to a nice Sunday afternoon after spending time at the exhibits. For local details, please visit our forecast page for The Capital Region!

MIDWEST- Most of the storminess Sunday will be concentrated from Texas up through Oklahoma and Missouri, then into the western Ohio River Valley. Please see the map attached for more details on the possible locations for storms Sunday. The good news is that with the storms comes a relief from the heat in the southern plains, with widespread 70s and 80s likely rather than 90s and 100s. The central and northern plains will be a little on the cool side with more 50s and 60s north of I-70 besides some 70s right around that line. 

WEST- The dry trend is winning out on the west coast but we won't be as warm as we have already seen this April in many places across the west. A few showers are possible in the Pacific Northwest again, but nothing major. Have a wonderful Sunday!
