US Short Term Forecast to Sep 18

***Scattered showers and thunderstorms over the Eastern Rockies***

***More fall-like weather for the Northern U.S.***

***Another cold front to bring more showers to the Eastern U.S.***

With plenty of lingering moisture in place, additional showers and storms remain in the forecast from the spine of the Rockies eastward into the Central Plains and western Texas. The combination of some 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., another cold front will continue to keep the weather cool and pleasant. Sunday night will be milder than what was observed Saturday night ahead of the front, and cooler nights ahead for early in the week. A few scattered showers may accompany this front, however no widespread significant rainfall is currently anticipated. The coldest weather will be found from the Northern Plains to New England.

Elsewhere, showers are in the forecast over the Pacific Northwest with an approaching upper level low and surface trough from the Pacific Ocean.

Some heavy rainfall is likely for southern Texas as Hurricane Ingrid makes landfall south of the border near Tampico, Mexico.
