...Showers and thunderstorms over parts of the Southeast...
A quasi-stationary front extending from the Carolina Coast to the Eastern
Gulf Coast and over parts of the Northern Gulf of Mexico will slowly
dissipate by Monday evening. Moisture will pool along the boundary aiding
in the development of showers and thunderstorms over parts of the
Southeast and along the Gulf Coast through Monday. In addition, showers
and thunderstorms along with regions of rain will develop over parts of
the Lower Rio Grande Valley through Sunday as moisture from the Western
Gulf of Mexico moves onshore. The area of precipitation will slowly wane
on Monday to just near the Southern Texas Coast.
Meanwhile, strong upper-level energy over the Northern Tier States will
move into the Great Lakes by Monday evening. Light rain will develop over
parts of the Upper Great Lakes through Sunday evening. The area of rain
will move eastward to the Lower Great Lakes/Ohio Valley by Monday evening.
Additionally, a new front will develop over parts of the Central
Plains/Central Rockies on Sunday evening and move into the Southern
Rockies/Plains while extending into parts of the Middle Mississippi Valley
by Monday evening. The boundary will focus showers and thunderstorms over
parts of the Central Plains on Monday morning sinking into the Southern
Plains and parts of the Southern Rockies by Monday evening.
