NATIONAL SUMMARY

A wedge of dry and slightly cooler air will continue to
hover over the Northeastern states, while warm and humid
conditions hold over much of the South. The Northeast will
be free of rain, while spotty downpours dot the South.
Tropical Rainstorm Bonnie may continue to enhance a few
downpours over the Carolinas. A swath of showers and locally
severe thunderstorms is forecast to extend along a cool
front from the Great Lakes region to the middle Mississippi
Valley to the southern Plains. A few of the storms can bring
damaging wind gusts, hail and blinding downpours. There will
be an elevated risk of flooding centered on Texas. Most
areas from the northern Plains through the West will be dry
and sunny. Showers will dot northwestern Washington, as heat
builds over much of the Pacific coast states.

___________________________________________________________________________
Johnstown, Pa.     1889    Flood disaster. Heavy rains caused overtopping
                           of a 90-foot-high earthen dam on the Conemaugh
                           River, 14 miles north in the mountains. The dam
                           gave way, and a torrent of water roared down on
                           the city at 50 mph. The force of the water moved
                           a 48-ton locomotive a mile. More than 2,200
                           people died.

Washington, D.C.    1991   The city had an average temperature of 73 degrees, 
                           making May 1991 the warmest May on record. There 
                           were a record 11 days of 90-degree heat.
