NATIONAL SUMMARY Another rainy and cool day will unfold across most of the Northeast today as a storm system pushes eastward. Meanwhile, thunderstorms will erupt in the warm and humid air from the Ohio Valley to the South. Thunderstorms will also extend back to central Texas. A few of the thunderstorms will become strong with damaging winds and hail, especially from Kentucky to the central Gulf Coast. Brisk winds will usher noticeably cooler air across the southern High Plains as another storm system delivers more showers and a few thunderstorms to the Four Corners and Sierra. A bit of wet snow will persist in Colorado and southern Wyoming. High pressure will allow the warming trend to continue in the Northwest.
