NATIONAL SUMMARY                   
 
Chilly air will pour into the Northeast tonight, leading to frost 
across the interior. Severe thunderstorms will target the southern 
High Plains, while thunderstorms rattle the Intermountain West. 
Meanwhile on Saturday, a large dome of high pressure will allow this 
Memorial Day holiday weekend to start on a dry note across the 
eastern third of the nation. Thunderstorms will make the Florida 
Peninsula the exception. Cooler air will filter into the Northeast's 
I-95 corridor, while humidity remains low in the South and the 
Midwest turns milder. Meanwhile, a storm system emerging from the 
Rockies will keep the flood threat high across central and southern 
Plains. Strong thunderstorms will also return to the Big Bend area of 
western Texas. A couple of showers will spread into the northern 
Plains, while thunderstorms encompass the Rockies and Intermountain 
West. The Desert Southwest will remain dry
and cool for late May.
