***SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS FROM THE OHIO VALLEY TO NEW ENGLAND***

***STORMY WEATHER FOR FLORIDA AND THE SOUTHEAST COAST***

***HEAT WAVE ENDING FOR THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST***

A COLD FRONT PROGRESSING EASTWARD FROM THE GREAT LAKES IS EXPECTED
TO HAVE A BROKEN BAND OF SHOWERS AND STORMS FROM THE OHIO VALLEY
TO THE EAST COAST.  SOME OF THESE STORMS MAY BE STRONG TO SEVERE
AND PRODUCE LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL.  COOLER AIR FILLING IN BEHIND
THE FRONT WILL RESULT IN HIGH TEMPERATURES SLIGHTLY BELOW SEASONAL
AVERAGES ACROSS THE UPPER MIDWEST AND THE GREAT LAKES REGION.

ADDITIONAL ROUNDS OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS, WITH LOCALLY HEAVY
RAINFALL, CAN BE EXPECTED FROM COASTAL SOUTH CAROLINA AND GEORGIA
BACK TO THE SOUTHEAST ACROSS NORTHERN FLORIDA AND ALONG THE
EASTERN GULF COAST.  THE GREATEST POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY RAIN IS
EXPECTED TO REMAIN CENTERED ACROSS THE NORTHERN AND CENTRAL
FLORIDA PENINSULA, WHERE TROPICAL MOISTURE POOLING ALONG A SURFACE
TROUGH IS EXPECTED TO BE GREATEST.

SOME STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE PACIFIC
NORTHWEST AND THE NORTHERN ROCKIES.  BY LATE MONDAY INTO TUESDAY,
A COLD FRONT DROPPING FROM THE NORTHWEST WILL BEGIN TO IMPACT THE
REGION, BRINGING AN END TO THE STRETCH OF WELL-ABOVE NORMAL
TEMPERATURES.
