High pressure is keeping the weather dry from the Great
Lakes to New England as skies are sunny to partly cloudy through the
northern sections of these regions and partly to mostly cloudy
through the southern sections. Widely scattered showers and isolated
thunderstorms are being experienced from the mid-Mississippi River
Valley east into the northern sections of the mid-Atlantic states.
Low pressure is producing scattered showers and thunderstorms from
the Dakotas to Texas. Some of these storms will be strong to severe
through Oklahoma and Texas. Large hail and strong winds will be the
main threat. The rain is changing over to snow through the northern
Rockies where it will be windy with 3 to 6 inches of snow likely. A
few rain and wet snow showers are spreading from the Pacific
Northwest coast into parts of Idaho. Sunshine is the rule from the
Southwest east into the southern half of the Rockies.
