450 PM EDT SUN SEP 14 2014

VALID 00Z MON SEP 15 2014 - 00Z WED SEP 17 2014

***FALL-LIKE WEATHER ACROSS MUCH OF THE NATION***

***UNSETTLED WEATHER FOR THE GULF COAST AND FLORIDA***

***DRY WEATHER FOR THE WESTERN U.S. THROUGH TUESDAY***

A LARGE SURFACE HIGH IS CONTROLLING THE WEATHER PATTERN ACROSS
MUCH OF THE COUNTRY, WITH MANY STATES ENJOYING PRISTINE FALL-LIKE
CONDITIONS.  WITH THE SPRAWLING HIGH COVERING MOST OF THE CENTRAL
AND EASTERN PARTS OF THE U.S., THE MAJORITY OF LOCATIONS DURING
THIS FORECAST PERIOD SHOULD ENJOY COOL AND DRY WEATHER.  QUIET
WEATHER IS ALSO EXPECTED FOR THE WEST COAST THROUGH EARLY NEXT
WEEK WITH NO MAJOR WEATHER SYSTEMS EXPECTED.

FARTHER SOUTH IN THE WARMER AND MORE HUMID AIRMASS, THERE WILL BE
SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS NEAR THE GULF COAST AND THE
FLORIDA PENINSULA.  LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL WILL BE POSSIBLE IN
AREAS WHERE CONVECTIVE ACTIVITY IS PERSISTENT.  SHOWERS AND
OCCASIONAL STORMS ARE LIKELY OVER WESTERN TEXAS AND THE SOUTHERN
ROCKIES WITH MOISTURE FLOWING NORTHWARD FROM MEXICO.  SHOWERS ARE
ALSO LIKELY ACROSS PARTS OF THE UPPER MIDWEST AND THE GREAT LAKES
REGION AS AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH AXIS MOVES THROUGH THE REGION.
