NATIONAL SUMMARY                   
Rain impacted much of the nation's midsection on Sunday as a potent 
storm system moved through the Tennessee Valley. On the southern side 
of this system, there were several dozen reports of severe 
thunderstorms from southern Alabama and the Florida Panhandle 
eastward into South Carolina. Reports of trees and power lines being 
down were most common, but there were even reports of roof damage. 
Heavy rainfall was also common, with 1 to 3 inches of rain across a 
large part of the Southeast. Lake Charles, Louisiana, recorded nearly 
4 inches of rain from downpours early on Sunday morning. Away from 
this system, rain fell across portions of the central Plains.
Some snow fell from the Rockies into the interior Northwest. West of 
the Cascades, some locally heavy downpours and even thunderstorms 
were found across western Washington. A tornado warning was even 
issued for a time in southwestern Washington on Sunday morning, 
although there were no reports of funnel clouds or a tornado.
SPECIAL WEATHER                    
Typhoon Irma Anniversary           
In 1981, the Philippines were hit by Typhoon Irma, the worst in 10 
years, packing winds up to 139 mph and resulting in a storm surge of 
16 feet; 236 people were killed, and 600,000 were left homeless.
WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS                 
Snow dusted high country along the Rockies on Saturday into Sunday. A 
few spots in Colorado had at least a foot of snow, including 13 
inches at Rabbit Ears Pass, Colorado, and an estimated 13.5 inches at 
Old Battle, west of Encampment, Wyoming.
Following this week's multi-foot snowfall events near the Great 
Lakes, temperatures in the region rose through the 40s on Sunday with 
50s in the south. Given the certainty of much snow melt through at 
least Monday, forecasters in Buffalo posted flood warnings. Several 
inches of water locked in the snow were at risk of being released to 
swell area streams.                
Melbourne, Florida, climbed to 86 degrees on Sunday afternoon, tying 
the old record for the day set back in 1992.
