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.
