***STATIONARY FRONT REMAINS OVER SOUTH-CENTRAL U.S.***

***SHOWERS AND STORMS FROM THE ROCKIES TO THE EAST COAST***

***CONTINUED HOT FOR THE WESTERN U.S. THROUGH THE WEEKEND***

A QUASI-STATIONARY FRONTAL BOUNDARY IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN SITUATED
FROM OKLAHOMA TO THE MID-ATLANTIC OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.
THE HEAT AND SUMMER-LIKE HUMIDITY WILL REMAIN SOUTH OF THE
BOUNDARY, AND COOLER CONDITIONS TO THE NORTH.  MULTIPLE WAVES OF
LOW PRESSURE ARE EXPECTED TO FORM AND TRACK EASTWARD ALONG THE
FRONT, ALONG WITH MORE ORGANIZED AREAS OF RAINFALL AND
THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY.  THE HEAVIEST RAIN IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP
FROM ARKANSAS TO THE SOUTHERN APPALACHIANS, WHERE ONE TO THREE
INCHES OF RAINFALL IS LIKELY, ALONG WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS.
A FEW SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE.

FOR THE WESTERN U.S., DIURNALLY DRIVEN SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL
CONTINUE TO BE PRESENT EACH AFTERNOON AND EVENING ACROSS THE
FOUR-CORNERS REGION AND EXTENDING SOUTHWARD INTO MEXICO IN
RESPONSE TO MONSOONAL MOISTURE IN PLACE.  ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS
ARE ALSO POSSIBLE ACROSS THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF NORTHERN
CALIFORNIA, OREGON, AND WASHINGTON.  IT SHOULD REMAIN HOT ACROSS
MUCH OF THE INTERIOR WEST, BUT SOME RELIEF IS COMING FROM
WASHINGTON STATE TO MONTANA AS A COLD FRONT IS FORECAST TO MOVE
THROUGH THOSE AREAS.
