A front extending from the Northern Appalachians southwestward to the
Central Rockies will be reinforced by a front developing over the Upper
Midwest Sunday night into Monday morning. The boundary will move slowly
into the Canadian Maritimes and southward to the Mid-Atlantic to the
Southern Plains by Tuesday. Showers and thunderstorms will develop along
and ahead of the front from the Central/Southern Plains to the Northeast.
The showers and thunderstorms will dip southward into the
Mid-Atlantic/Southeast while continuing over parts of the Central/Southern
Plains on Monday.
Along the developing front, rain will develop over parts of the Upper
Midwest, with light to moderate rain developing over parts of Northern New
England. The rain will move out of Northern New England by Monday
evening. Showers and thunderstorms will develop along the new front over
the Upper Midwest into parts of the Northeast by Monday evening. As the
boundary moves southward, showers and thunderstorms will extend from
Southern New England to the Mid-Atlantic and from the Southeast to the
Central/Southern Plains by Tuesday morning.
Meanwhile, upper-level dynamics associated with an upper-level low moving
inland over the Pacific Northwest will aid in producing showers and
thunderstorms over parts of the Northwest eastward to parts of the
Northern Rockies through Tuesday.
