Rainy Monday likely in Texas, Oklahoma

1:29 P.M. ET 10/3/2004


Senior Meteorologist, The Weather Channel





Except for a lonely shower or storm here and there over the Florida Peninsula and in far eastern North Carolina, the weather in the South east of the Mississippi should be absolutely delightful tomorrow: sunny and seasonably warm. West of the Mississippi, scattered showers and thunderstorms will prevail, especially in Oklahoma and Texas. The rain may be locally heavy in parts of northern Texas, perhaps near the Dallas-Ft. Worth area, as a weak upper-air disturbance and decelerating cold front join forces there. Farther south, a few severe storms could pop up in parts of West Texas. High temperatures are expected to range from the 60s in the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles to the 80s in southern and eastern Texas, the Deep South and Florida.



A reinforcing mass of chilly air pushing over the Midwest and Plains tomorrow will keep temperatures below early October means. Highs are expected to range from the 40s in the northern portions of the Upper Midwest to the low to mid-70s in the lower Ohio Valley, extreme southern Missouri and southeast Kansas. Sunshine will prevail over most of the region with precipitation confined to a few stray rain or wet snow showers in parts of northern Michigan.



A moisture-starved cold front moving through the Northeast tomorrow will deliver only a sparse scattering of light showers to a limited area. Only a few locations from northern Vermont through New York into parts of Pennsylvania seem likely to get wet. High temperatures will be near seasonal norms (mostly in the 60s and 70s), before plunging to below average levels Tuesday.



Sunshine will dominate much of the West Monday with the threat of precipitation relatively limited. Widely scattered showers and thunderstorms will dot the Intermountain region, with somewhat greater activity likely in eastern Colorado and eastern New Mexico (including the eastern slopes of the Rockies). A few of the storms in southeastern New Mexico could turn severe. High temperatures are expected to be above early autumn means in the Northwest, below in the eastern parts of Colorado and New Mexico. Overall, maxima will range from the 40s in parts of the Colorado Rockies to the 90s in the Desert Southwest. Readings in the 70s will be widespread in the lower elevations of Washington, Oregon and Montana.
