Flash flooding possible from portions of the southern plains to the Ohio River valley.

Showers and thunderstorms expected for portions of the Intermountain West.

Above average temperatures for the Pacific Northwest.

A cold front will move across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states tonight into Wednesday morning. Showers and thunderstorms will accompany the front as it moves across these regions. From the Mid-Atlantic region westward across the Ohio valley and into the southern plains, the frontal boundary is forecast to become nearly stationary and persist through the short range forecast period. This front is already bringing widespread rain and thunderstorms this afternoon across much of the southern plains and Ohio valley. Showers and thunderstorms will persist from the southern plains into the middle Mississippi and Ohio valleys into Wednesday. A very moist, tropical air mass in place across these areas will result in the potential for heavy rainfall, which may move across some of the same areas repeatedly, resulting in the potential for flash flooding. A wave of low pressure is forecast to develop along the surface front across the middle Mississippi valley Wednesday afternoon, then track eastward into the Ohio valley Wednesday night/Thursday morning. This will once again spread the potential for widespread showers and thunderstorms east into the Ohio valley and portions of the Lower Great Lakes.

A cold front will move across the northern plains tonight into Wednesday, before dissipating by early Thursday. This front will bring showers and thunderstorms to portions of the northern plains and Upper Midwest through Wednesday.

In the western U.S., an upper-level low from the Pacific will move onshore in California on Wednesday. Upper-level disturbances ejecting from the low will move across the Intermountain West, resulting in areas of showers and thunderstorms. These showers and thunderstorms will be the most widespread during the afternoon and evening hours, particularly in areas of terrain. High pressure at the mid and upper-levels of the atmosphere will remain in place across the Pacific Northwest. This will keep temperatures 10 to 15 degrees above average and precipitation to a minimum.
