Rain will continue from the Midwest to the mid-Atlantic and
portions of the northeastern United States tomorrow as a
storm continues to sit and spin over the area. Locally heavy
rainfall is possible in some locations. Some of these storms
could create a waterspout over the Great Lakes. Meanwhile,
dry and seasonable conditions will be found across much of
the Deep South. Spotty thunderstorms will continue to impact
parts of Florida. Dry weather will continue to span much of
the Central states while spotty showers and thunderstorms
erupt over the Intermountain West. A storm system off the
Pacific Northwest coast will bring a shower late to coastal
Washington and Oregon. Dry weather will be the rule for much
of California.
