Today will be a cool, wet, fall-like day across much of the west as a deep upper level trough moves inland over the Pacific Northwest, suppressing high temperatures as much as 15 degrees across the western states. The trough will also induce a band of widespread precipitation from northeastern Oregon across the central Idaho mountains and into northwestern Montana. Showery conditions associated with this trough are also expected in northwestern Washington. Dry and breezy conditions ahead of the trough will prevail in parts of the western Great Basin and the Upper Missouri Valley. Another day of showers and thunderstorms will continue in the Southwest, Central Rockies and the Central Plains due to the ongoing stream of monsoonal moisture out of the south. A high pressure ridge will amplify over the eastern half of the nation for very warm temperatures. Moisture trapped under the ridge will keep wet thunderstorms moving across the Great Lakes area throughout the day.
