...WIDESPREAD HEAVY RAINS LIKELY FROM THE SOUTHERN ROCKIES AND
SOUTHERN GREAT PLAINS TO THE MID MISSISSIPPI VALLEY...

...ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES CONTINUE ACROSS THE PACIFIC
NORTHWEST...

...TEMPERATURES DROPPING BELOW NORMAL ACROSS MUCH OF THE CENTRAL
U.S....

FLASH FLOOD WATCHES ARE CURRENTLY IN EFFECT FOR A LARGE PORTION OF
NEW MEXICO, THE TEXAS PANHANDLE AND EXTENDING NORTHEASTWARD ACROSS
OKLAHOMA, SOUTHEASTERN KANSAS INTO MISSOURI.  A STRONG,
MOISTURE-LADEN FRONTAL BOUNDARY IS EXPECTED TO PROVIDE THE FOCUS
FOR WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS AS IT DROPS SOUTH AND
THEN SLOWS ACROSS THE REGION.  THESE STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF
PRODUCING HEAVY RAINFALL TOTALS, WHICH MAY CAUSE FLOODING CONCERNS.

FURTHER TO THE NORTH, THE FRONT IS EXPECTED TO PROGRESS MORE
STEADILY -- MOVING ACROSS THE GREAT LAKES TO THE NORTHEAST WITH
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS FALLING ACROSS THE REGION.

WELL AHEAD OF THE FRONT, SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TO
CONTINUE LIFTING TO THE NORTH ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE MID-ATLANTIC,
CENTRAL APPALACHIANS INTO THE NORTHEAST OVERNIGHT.

WHILE TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN ABOVE NORMAL ACROSS THE
PACIFIC NORTHWEST, BELOW AVERAGE TEMPERATES ARE EXPECTED ACROSS
MUCH OF THE CENTRAL U.S.  BEHIND THE FRONT, EXPECT HIGH
TEMPERATURE ON TUESDAY OF 15-20 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL ACROSS PARTS
OF OKLAHOMA AND THE TEXAS PANHANDLE.
