NATIONAL SUMMARY

A mosaic of showers and thunderstorms extended from the eastern Gulf
of Mexico to the central Appalachians. More concentrated areas of
showers and thunderstorms extended from the central Gulf coast to the
Ohio Valley. Storms were ramping up from the northern part of the
Ohio Valley to the Upper Great Lakes. A spiral area of rain with
chilly air and gusty winds was affecting the northern part of the
Mississippi Valley. Warm and very humid air extended northward from
the Gulf of Mexico to New England. In contrast, less humid and cooler
air was pushing eastward across the Plains. Most areas from the High
Plains to the Pacific coast were dry and sunny. Another hot afternoon
was under way in the West, including the Northwest. The typical sea
breeze was keeping coastal California cool.
