...Fall-like weather continues across much of the nation...

...Strong low pressure system approaching the Pacific Northwest...

A large high pressure area moving southeast out of southern Canada
Monday will bring pristine fall weather to the eastern half of the
nation behind a reinforcing cold front.  Scattered showers are
possible near the Great Lakes, and snow showers for the higher
elevations of New England with below normal temperatures in place
over that region.  Locations farther south should have a dry
frontal passage with a slight drop in temperatures.  Warm and dry
conditions are expected to continue for the Gulf Coast region and
Deep South through Tuesday with mostly sunny skies and ongoing

Unsettled weather over the eastern Pacific with a deep low
pressure system offshore is expected to bring periods of rain to
the Pacific Northwest early this week.  Additional showers and
storms are likely to develop over the Intermountain West, with
snow for the highest mountains.  Windy conditions are also
expected for coastal areas from northern California to Washington

By Wednesday morning, surface cyclogenesis over the Midwest states
is expected to result in numerous showers and some storms.  Strong
thunderstorms are possible south of the warm front that will lift
northward towards the Ohio Valley, and a cold rain across
Wisconsin and Michigan.
