US Short Term Forecast to Oct 16

Heavy rain possible for the Central U.S. and into the Mississippi

Improving weather conditions across the East...

The big headline this forecast period is the developing storm system
across the Central Rockies and moving into the Central Plains states by Monday.

As the system progresses through the mountains, moisture will be
drawn up from the Gulf of Mexico to produce heavy rain for parts of the
Southern Plains through Monday... with flash flooding a possibility.

Across the Central/Northern Plains... light rain will begin overnight
Sunday and eventually transition into organized heavier rain by Monday afternoon with embedded thunderstorms possible ahead of the cold front. Some of the storms across the Central Plains could produce severe weather as forecast by the Storm Prediction Center.

Across the Rockies, valley rain and higher elevation snow will be possible through Tuesday with some very marginal accumulations possible in the highest terrain on the Central Rockies as well as stretching into the Northern High Plains as the system passes.

East of this... a front extending from the Great Lakes into the Southeast will continue to move slowly eastward over the forecast period as it weakens over the Eastern U.S. Light and scattered showers will continue to be possible just ahead of the boundary across New England on Monday, but once the front passes on Tuesday, conditions should improve.

Further south, the upper low off the Mid-Atlantic coastline which brought soaking rains to the region over the weekend, has begun to weaken. Just a few scattered showers or thunderstorms remain in the forecast for extreme coastal regions of the Southeast on Monday and Tuesday.

Elsewhere, temperatures remain mild and skies clear which comes as a welcomed improvement for places in the East.
