NATIONAL SUMMARY                   
It was a cool day across the Northeast yesterday as a surge of 
fall-like air pushed in from the north. High temperatures across 
region struggled to reach the mid-50s. On the other hand, an 
impressive surge of warm air crept into the Northwest with daytime 
highs reaching into the low to middle 70s, which is 10-15 degrees 
higher than average for this time of the year.
The showers and periods of heavy rain that impacted the East during 
the first part of the weekend began to push to the north, allowing 
for a predominately dry day across the region. Although cities like 
Syracuse and Ithaca, New York, did have a shower or two. 
Thunderstorms stretched across the Four Corners and Texas, and dumped 
over a half an inch of rain in places like Gallup, New Mexico, and El 
Paso, Texas. Elsewhere across the country, conditions remained dry.
