...HEAVY RAIN AND STORMY WEATHER FOR THE PLAINS, AND WARMER
WEATHER RETURNS FOR THE EAST COAST...

NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE FORECAST TO CONTINUE ACROSS
THE MIDDLE OF THE NATION THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK WITH MULTIPLE
FRONTAL BOUNDARIES IN THE REGION.  SEVERE STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO
DEVELOP ACROSS PARTS OF THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN PLAINS ON
THURSDAY IN RESPONSE TO AN UPPER LEVEL IMPULSE APPROACHING FROM
THE INTERMOUNTAIN WEST.  THE THUNDERSTORM COMPLEXES THAT DEVELOP
MAY ALSO CAUSE PERIODS OF HEAVY RAINFALL THAT COULD LEAD TO SOME
LOCALIZED FLOODING ISSUES.

SUMMER-LIKE TEMPERATURES HAVE ARRIVED TO MUCH OF THE EAST COAST
STATES TODAY AND THIS IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE THROUGH FRIDAY AS A
BERMUDA HIGH BECOMES ESTABLISHED OVER THE WESTERN ATLANTIC.  WITH
THE SUSTAINED SOUTHERLY FLOW, THE HUMIDITY IS EXPECTED TO RISE
WITH DEWPOINTS RISING WELL INTO THE 60S AND EVEN LOW 70S AT TIMES.
 ISOLATED TO SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS ARE FORECAST TO DEVELOP
DURING THE AFTERNOONS AND EVENINGS IN RESPONSE TO THE DAYTIME
HEATING.

OUT WEST, SHOWERS AND HIGH ELEVATION SNOW WILL BE POSSIBLE OVER
THE NEXT FEW DAYS WITH THE WEATHER PATTERN REMAINING UNSETTLED
WITH AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH IN PLACE.  DRY CONDITIONS SHOULD
CONTINUE FOR MOST OF CALIFORNIA AND THE DESERT SOUTHWEST.
