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.
