***Scattered showers and thunderstorms over the Rockies***
***Wonderful weather continues for the East Coast***
***Another cold front to bring more showers to the Northern U.S.***
With plenty of lingering moisture in place, additional showers and storms remain in the forecast from the southern Rockies northward to the western High Plains. The combination of monsoonal moisture, shortwave energy aloft, and converging surface winds will support localized areas of heavy rainfall. A few strong or severe thunderstorms are also possible.
Over the Midwest and Northeast U.S., a pristine airmass has settled in this weekend with refreshingly cool temperatures and much lower humidity. Temperatures could easily fall into the 40s in many areas under clear skies and light winds Saturday night, with warmer weather arriving on Sunday ahead of the next cold front approaching from the Great Lakes. More dry and cool weather is expected for early in the week.
Elsewhere, showers and perhaps a few thunderstorms will accompany the next cold front sweeping through the Northern Plains, Upper Midwest, and Great Lakes region through Sunday. Showers will also be possible over the Pacific Northwest with an approaching upper level low from the Pacific Ocean. Some heavy rainfall is likely for southern Texas as Hurricane Ingrid makes landfall south of the border near Tampico, Mexico.
