Weather Underground Forecast for Monday, September 09, 2013.
As an area of low pressure continues to move slowly through the northern Plains and into the upper Midwest, thunderstorms will be in the forecast for eastern Montana, the Dakotas, as well as parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin through Monday. Monsoonal moisture will also provide widespread thunderstorms for the Southwest and Great Basin regions, while showers and thunderstorms will continue to linger in the Gulf of Mexico along the Texas coast.
The upper Midwest will continue to receive plenty of rainfall through Monday as thunderstorms, gusty winds, and a chance of hail will accompany this low pressure system. Considering how slow this system is moving, flash flood warnings will more than likely be issued for this region.
The Southwest and parts of the Great Basin will also experience strong thunderstorms through Monday as the threat for flash floods will linger throughout the afternoon and evening hours. Thunderstorms will be most problematic along mountains and adjacent valleys due to monsoonal moisture in combination with daytime heating over elevated terrain.
As spotty showers track their way through the Mid-Atlantic and parts of the Northeast, the majority of the East Coast will be under a dominant high pressure system. Expect relatively warmer temperatures through Monday in the Southeast, while a much cooler air mass will provide chilly temperatures in the Northeast. The Northeast could see temperatures drop a few degrees as a cooler airmass moves in. Thunderstorms along the Gulf Coast, including the Texas coastline and parts of Florida, will also persist through Monday.
Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Sunday have ranged from a morning low of 30 degrees at Mt. Washington, N.H. to a high of 100 degrees at Hill City, Kan.
