September is off to a thundery start across much of the central
and eastern United States, with a series of cold fronts triggering
widespread shower activity. Late-season heat is anticipated over a
goodish chunk of the nation from the southern Great Plains to the
Mid Atlantic. Cool weather will be confined to the Pacific
Northwest and the northern Rocky Mountains. Dry conditions will
prevail over the Southwest. A tropical system tracking into Mexico
from the Bay of Campeche will enhance rainfall across extreme
southern Texas.
