Severe weather was expected to continue popping up Thursday along a front that remains parked over the Eastern and Central U.S.
   The front extended from the Northeast, down the Ohio River Valley, into the Southern Plains, wrapping back northward into the Northern Rockies.
   Conditions were favorable for thunderstorm development, with strong winds, large hail and periods of heavy rain. Flooding could continue to threaten the Mid-Mississippi River Valley.
   The Northern Plains was to see another afternoon of scattered showers and thunderstorms, some of them turning severe.
   In the West, below-average temperatures, overcast skies and a few scattered sprinkles were to persist. Elsewhere, afternoon scattered showers and thunderstorms were to continue over Florida and the Southwest was to remain hot and dry.
   Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Wednesday ranged from a low of 30 degrees at Wolf Point, Mont., to a high of 102 degrees at Cotulla, Texas.
