...Cool with showers over the Northeast U.S...
...Pacific cold front affects the Pacific Northwest...
The area of the country with the greatest weather impacts over the next
couple of days will be from the southern Plains to the Deep South and
Florida. A slow moving low pressure system over the northern Gulf of
Mexico will result in a strong moisture surge being lifted northward over
a nearly stationary front near the Gulf Coast. Numerous showers and
thunderstorms are expected from Louisiana to the Florida Peninsula, with
rainfall amounts exceeding two inches in some areas by the middle of the
week. Another area of rain is expected over parts of Oklahoma and Texas
as an upper level low tracks eastward and results in rising air motion and
The weather will continue to be rather cool and showery over New England
and upstate New York as an upper-level closed low over the Canadian
maritimes keeps plenty of clouds around along with persistent northerly
winds. Over the Pacific Northwest, a cold front will approach the region
on Tuesday with periods of rain and high elevation snow for Washington and
