...DETERIORATING WEATHER CONDITIONS FOR THE SOUTHEAST AND
MID-ATLANTIC...

...NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND STORMS FOR THE PLAINS AND ROCKIES...

A CHANGE IN THE WEATHER IS COMING TO THE SOUTHEAST COAST AND THE
MID-ATLANTIC REGION FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND
WITH A TROPICAL DEPRESSION HEADED TOWARDS THE SOUTH CAROLINA
COAST.  MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF SHOWERS AND OCCASIONAL THUNDERSTORMS
ARE LIKELY TO MOVE INLAND AND AFFECT AREAS FROM GEORGIA TO THE
DELMARVA PENINSULA BY SUNDAY AFTERNOON.  SOME AREAS MAY GET A FEW
INCHES OF RAIN FROM THIS EVENT, LEADING TO SOME RUN-OFF AND
LOCALIZED FLOODING ISSUES.  THE WIND IMPACTS SHOULD BE MINIMAL
THOUGH.

HEAVY RAINFALL IS ALSO EXPECTED FOR THE SOUTHERN PLAINS BY SUNDAY
NIGHT AND MEMORIAL DAY WITH AN ADDITIONAL SURGE OF MOISTURE
RETURNING NORTHWARD FROM THE GULF OF MEXICO.  THE SOUTHERN END OF
A WEAKENING COLD FRONT WILL STALL ACROSS OKLAHOMA AND KANSAS,
KEEPING SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS PLENTIFUL IN THAT
AREA.  LOCAL FLASH FLOODING WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE FOR PORTIONS OF
THE SOUTHERN AND CENTRAL PLAINS.

SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE ROCKIES
THROUGH THE NEXT COUPLE DAYS AS A FRONTAL SYSTEM MOVES SLOWLY EAST
ACROSS THE REGION AND WEAKENS.  A SECONDARY PACIFIC COLD FRONT IS
FORECAST TO MOVE ACROSS THE INTERMOUNTAIN ON SUNDAY AND INTO
MONDAY, BRINGING ANOTHER ROUND OF SCATTERED SHOWERS AND STORMS.
