Upper-level energy over Texas and moisture from the Western Gulf of Mexico
aid in producing showers and thunderstorms over the Western Gulf Coast
Sunday through Tuesday. In addition, a front over the Northern Rockies
will slowly move eastward to the Upper Great Lakes/Upper Mississippi
Valley by Tuesday. The system will produce showers and thunderstorms over
the Northern Intermountain Region on Sunday. Overnight Sunday, showers
and thunderstorms will develop over the Central Rockies and the
Northern/Central High Plains and by Monday will move into Upper/Middle
Mississippi Valley. Overnight Monday, the showers and thunderstorms will
move into the Great Lakes. Ahead of the system, upper-level ridging will
aid in producing temperatures 10 to 15 degrees above average over the
Northern High Plains.
Critical fire weather conditions will develop across Eastern Nevada,
Western/Southern Utah, and Northwest Arizona with south-southwest
sustained winds of 15-25 mph and minimum RH of 8-20% expected across the
region. Elevated conditions are expected around the critical area and
extending through Utah into Northwest Colorado. These dry/windy conditions
are following recent lightning, which could help spread any current fires.
Upper-level troughing over the Lower Great Lakes will aid in producing
temperatures 10 to 15 degrees below average over the Lower Great Lakes.
Also a front lingering over Southern Florida will aid in producing showers
and thunderstorms over the region through Tuesday morning.
