NATIONAL SUMMARY -It was a warm end to summer across the East yesterday with highs in the 80s as far north as Burlington, Vermont. Dry conditions did not accompany the warm weather; however, some rain grazed eastern New England, delivering over an inch of rain to Hartford and New Haven, Connecticut. Showers and thunderstorms also developed ahead of a cold front that reached from western New York through Tennessee and back into Oklahoma. -Temperatures across the Midwest and northern Plains behind the front ran near or below normal with the lowest temperatures focusing around the Great Lakes. A contributing factor to the lower temperatures was rain that fell over the region with Saginaw, Michigan, receiving over an inch on the day. -Showers and thunderstorms were seen from western Texas to Nevada and Idaho with the heaviest rain falling over southeastern New Mexico. This rain did cause some flash flooding, closing several roadways around the New Mexican towns of Artesia and Carlsbad. Heavy rain also caused a small mudslide to occur outside of Manhattan, Nevada. Dry conditions were experienced along the West Coast with temperatures continuing to run above normal.
