Cool surface high pressure and an upper level trough centered over the Great Lakes and eastern Canada brought well below normal temperatures to a large portion of the northern and central U.S. this morning.
|Mid-day Monday's surface map shows a stationary front along the Gulf Coast, but rain chances increasing (greens) in the Mid-South as upper level energy approaches from the west.|
|A Marginal Risk (category 1 of 5) severe weather exists Tuesday with higher chances of strong storms to our southwest, according to the Storm Prediction Center. A few storms could have strong wind gusts or small hail.|
|By Thursday morning, the front returns to the Gulf Coast as high pressure builds in to our north once again, leading to what will most likely be the driest day of the week.|
