.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0232 AM CDT MON OCT 20 2014/

...SYNOPSIS...
FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS WILL REMAIN LOW ON TUESDAY. AREAS OF SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS MUCH OF THE
ROCKIES...INTERMOUNTAIN WEST AND SOUTHERN HIGH PLAINS AS THE UPPER
TROUGH OVER THE WESTERN GREAT BASIN PROGRESSES EASTWARD TOWARD THE
ROCKIES. AS THIS OCCURS...A SURFACE LOW WILL STRENGTHEN OVER EASTERN
MT AND LIFT NORTHEAST TOWARD THE CANADIAN PRAIRIE
PROVINCES...BRINGING THE PACIFIC COLD FRONT ACROSS THE NORTHERN AND
CENTRAL ROCKIES. FURTHER EAST...THE PLAINS UPPER RIDGE WILL ONLY
SLOWLY DRIFT TOWARD THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER AS AN EAST COAST UPPER
TROUGH/DEVELOPING UPPER LOW BLOCKS THE EASTWARD PROGRESSION OF THIS
FEATURE. A SURFACE LOW OVER WESTERN NY WILL DEVELOP EAST/SOUTHEAST
TOWARD THE MID-ATLANTIC WHILE A WEAK NOR`EASTER IMPACTS NEW ENGLAND.
AS A RESULT...WIDESPREAD RAINFALL IS EXPECTED FROM THE UPPER OH
VALLEY AND ACROSS MUCH OF THE MID-ATLANTIC AND NORTHEAST U.S. A COLD
FRONT WILL SWEEP ACROSS THIS REGION AND OFFSHORE BY WEDNESDAY
MORNING.
