Rain around the western Gulf and chilly in the Northeast

Tom Moore, Senior Meteorologist, The Weather Channel




Frost and freeze advisories are in effect for much of the lower Great Lakes and lower Midwest as a chilly Canadian air is expected to drift over the region. High pressure will keep the Great Lakes and lower Midwest on the chilly side on Tuesday with highs in the 50s and 60s, while westerly winds on the back side of the high allow the Plains and Upper Midwest to warm up. Look for high temperatures in the 70s and even low 80s on the northern Plains.



The Northeast will be dry, but breezy and noticably cooler on Tuesday with afternoon temperatures expected to be well below seasonal averages, in the 40s, 50s and 60s, north to south. Tuesday will begin with an autumn chill as frost and freeze advisories are in effect for portions of New England, New York state and northeast Pennsylvania.



Much of the Southeast will enjoy a pleasant Tuesday. Farther west, however, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue in Louisiana and Texas, with a few severe storms possible in southwest Texas. High temperatures will range from about average in the Southeast to a bit below in Oklahoma and Texas. Overall, highs in the 70s and 80s will be common, although the 60s may prevail in northwest Texas, western Oklahoma, much of Tennessee and far northern North Carolina.



A flow of Gulf moisture, combined with upper air disturbances, will trigger scattered showers and thunderstorms over New Mexico, much of Colorado and eastern Utah. A few of the storms in Colorado and New Mexico could turn severe. Meanwhile, a Pacific front steaming eastward toward the Northwest will push showers into western Washington and extreme northwest Oregon. The rest of the region will be dry. High temperatures will range from the 50s in the higher Rockies to the 80s in California's Central Valley and the 90s in the Desert Southwest.
