***STORMY WEATHER FROM WESTERN TEXAS TO THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS***

***COASTAL LOW PRESSURE NEAR THE NEW ENGLAND COAST SUNDAY NIGHT***

***PATTERN CHANGE FOR THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST BY MID-WEEK***

AFTER ALL OF THE RAIN AND FLOODING FROM THE REMNANTS OF HURRICANE
ODILE, SOME LINGERING MOISTURE OVER TEXAS WILL KEEP THE THREAT OF
LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL AND SOME ISOLATED FLOODING GOING THROUGH
MONDAY, ALTHOUGH THE AREAL COVERAGE SHOULD BE LESS THAN WHAT HAS
RECENTLY BEEN OBSERVED.  ANOMALOUS MOISTURE IS ALSO EXPECTED OVER
THE FOUR-CORNERS REGION AND WESTWARD TO NEVADA AND IDAHO, WHERE
SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL ALSO BE SCATTERED TO OCCASIONALLY NUMEROUS.

OVER THE COASTAL WATERS OF NEW ENGLAND, A SURFACE LOW PRESSURE
AREA IS EXPECTED TO MIGRATE TOWARDS THE CANADIAN MARITIMES BY
MONDAY.  CURRENT FORECASTS INDICATE THE BULK OF THE PRECIPITATION
WILL REMAIN OFFSHORE, BUT OCCASIONAL SHOWERS AND LIGHT RAIN MAY
AFFECT PARTS OF EASTERN NEW ENGLAND.  FOR THE REST OF THE EAST
COAST, EXPECT A REFRESHING CHANGE TO FALL-LIKE WEATHER FOR EARLY
IN THE WEEK AS ANOTHER QUALITY AIRMASS SETTLES IN BEHIND THE COLD
FRONT CURRENTLY OVER THE OHIO VALLEY.  BY THE END OF THE FORECAST
PERIOD, A SIGNIFICANT STORM SYSTEM OVER THE PACIFIC OCEAN IS
EXPECTED TO BRING RAIN TO THE COASTS OF NORTHERN CALIFORNIA,
OREGON, AND WASHINGTON.
