US Short Term Forecast to Oct 9

***Strong cold front will bring a change in the weather***

***Remnants of Karen to provide rainfall for Florida***

***New frontal system entering the Western U.S.***

The main weather maker over the continental U.S. over the next few days will be a strong cold front crossing the Eastern U.S.

After several days of hot and humid weather from the Mid-Atlantic to the Deep South, this front will bring badly needed relief from both the heat and the ongoing dry conditions for many locations.

Monday should be a rainy day from the Carolinas northward into Quebec, and many places may see an inch or more of rainfall. Although some strong thunderstorms may develop ahead of this
front, the majority of the severe weather is now over given that much of
the forcing and wind shear has abated, especially as we head into Monday.

A very welcomed return to fall-like weather and a high quality airmass can be expected for the middle of the week.

Former Tropical Storm Karen has weakened to a remnant low over the Central Gulf Coast region, and residents can now breath a sigh of relief. The only hazards from this will be localized areas of heavier rainfall and some rip currents at the beaches, and thankfully any wind or surge issues will be minor to non-existent.

Elsewhere, a front over the Eastern Pacific will move onshore over the
Pacific Northwest overnight Sunday and into early Monday, progressing to the Northern Rockies by Monday evening. This storm system is forecast to produce light to moderate rain along the Pacific Northwest Coast, and this should move inland to parts of the Northern Rockies on Monday. Snow is possible at the highest elevations.
