A cold front, preceded by showers and thunderstorms, will continue to push
through the remainder of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states this
evening. While delivering drier air, typical summertime temperatures are
expected to persist across much of the region through the remainder of the
Further to the south, the front is expected to stall across the Southeast
and along the Gulf coast back into Texas. Very moist, unstable air along
and south of the boundary will continue to support showers and
thunderstorms across the Southeast and central Gulf coast regions. While
much of the activity is expected to be scattered in nature, weak
disturbances aloft may help to produce some organized storms, particularly
along the eastern and central Gulf coast regions.
Further west, afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms are expected
to continue both days across portions of the southern Rockies, the Desert
Southwest and southern California. Some of these storms may produce
locally heavy amounts, resulting in excessive runoff and flash flooding.
Some storms developing across the mountains of northern New Mexico and
southern Colorado may propagate eastward, dropping heavy rains as they
move into southwestern Kansas and the Oklahoma and Texas Panhandle regions.
Across the Northwest, little change is expected over the next few days as
high pressure at the mid and upper-levels of the atmosphere will keep dry
conditions and above average temperatures in place across the region.
