Showers and thunderstorms will affect much of the Northeast,
mid-Atlantic, Ohio Valley and southward through the
Southeast tomorrow as a weak wave of low pressure slowly
moves along a stationary boundary in the Ohio Valley.
Farther west, moisture feeding into the Southwest will
ignite showers and thunderstorms across Arizona, Utah,
Colorado and New Mexico. While farther north, a cold front
will ignite severe thunderstorms in the afternoon in
eastern Montana and the western Dakotas, bringing the threat
for damaging winds and large hail. Elsewhere, it will be dry
and seasonably warm in California and the Northwest, the
Plains and the western and central Great Lakes.
