VALID 00Z WED JUL 27 2016 - 00Z FRI JUL 29 2016

...SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS AND HEAVY RAIN POSSIBLE TODAY FOR PORTIONS
OF THE CENTRAL/NORTHERN PLAINS...

...WET CONDITIONS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP ALONG THE GULF COAST...

...ABOVE AVERAGE TEMPERATURES EXPECTED TO CONTINUE ACROSS THE EAST
AND THE WEST THROUGH MID-WEEK...

...HEAVY RAIN POSSIBLE ON THURSDAY ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE CENTRAL
PLAINS AND CENTRAL APPALACHIANS...

SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE FORECAST ACROSS MUCH OF THE NORTHERN
TIER STATES AS A COLD FRONT MOVES SOUTHWARD FROM THE CANADIAN
PRAIRIE. SOME OF THESE STORMS COULD BE SEVERE AND MAY PRODUCE
PERIODS OF HEAVY RAINFALL. PLEASE REFER TO PRODUCTS ISSUED BY THE
STORM PREDICTION CENTER FOR MORE DETAILS ON THE SEVERE WEATHER
THREAT. THE COLD FRONT WILL PUSH THROUGH THE CENTRAL PLAINS,
MIDWEST AND OHIO VALLEY BY THURSDAY AFTERNOON. MEANWHILE, A NEARLY
STATIONARY FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL LINGER FROM THE MID-ATLANTIC
REGION TO THE MID-MISSISSIPPI VALLEY TO THE CENTRAL PLAINS THROUGH
THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK. THIS WILL LEAD TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS REMAINING IN THE FORECAST FOR MUCH OF THE EASTERN
TWO THIRDS OF THE NATION.

ALONG THE GULF COAST, A BROAD AREA OF LOW PRESSURE AT THE MID AND
UPPER-LEVELS OF THE ATMOSPHERE ALONG WITH DEEP, TROPICAL MOISTURE
WILL SUPPORT NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
NUMEROUS SHOWERS ARE FORECAST TO FOCUS FROM THE GULF COAST/LOWER
MISSISSIPPI VALLEY NORTHWARD TO THE MIDDLE MISSISSIPPI VALLEY.
HEAVY RAIN MAY BE POSSIBLE.

OUT WEST, HOT AND DRY CONDITIONS WILL PERSIST OVER THE NEXT FEW
DAYS. AFTERNOON HIGH TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO RANGE 5 TO 15
DEGREES ABOVE SEASONAL AVERAGE FOR LATE JULY. HIGH PRESSURE IN THE
MIDDLE AND UPPER PORTIONS OF THE ATMOSPHERE WILL GENERALLY INHIBIT
ANY CHANCES FOR APPRECIABLE PRECIPITATION. MONSOONAL FLOW INTO THE
SOUTHWEST MAY YIELD 0.50 TO 1.25 INCHES IN THE HIGHER TERRAIN
THROUGH FRIDAY EVENING.
