High pressure is keeping the weather dry through New
England today as skies are sunny to partly cloudy. A storm system,
spinning over the northern sections of the Midwest, is producing
showers from the Upper Midwest east into the central Great lakes.
Showers and thunderstorms are rumbling from the Ohio River Valley
south through the mid- and lower Mississippi River Valley. Some of
these storms will produce heavy rain while a few of them may become
severe with large hail and damaging winds. Showers and thunderstorms
are also rumbling through the central Plains. Some of these storms
are also producing locally heavy rain. Colder air over the northern
Rockies is changing the rain to snow showers through the northern
Rockies and High Plains. Sunny to partly cloudy skies are being
experienced from the California coast east into the southern half of
the Rockies.
