A weak trough of low pressure is spreading a few
thunderstorms through the eastern Great Lakes and southern sections
of the Northeast. Sunny to partly cloudy skies are being experienced
through the southeastern U.S. Moisture from the Gulf of Mexico is
spreading north through the south-central U.S. and is providing the
necessary fuel for widely scattered showers and thunderstorms over
the southern Plains. As a cold front extends through the central-
central U.S., rain showers are falling through the Midwest while rain
and snow is falling from the northern Plains west into the northern
Rockies. The rain and snow is spreading west into the Sierra Nevada
and central sections of California. Sunshine is being seen on the
Northwest while sunny to partly cloudy skies are spreading through
the southwestern U.s. and the southern half of the Rockies.
