Showers will continue over northern and eastern Washington before moving east into Montana with breezy winds and thunderstorms. Ahead of the cold front it will be breezy across the Great Basin and Rocky Mountain region. Strong storms are anticipated for the northern Plains and Dakotas ahead of a warm front. Warming and drying will begin in earnest today across the southwest quarter of the U.S. including Arizona and California. A cold front stretching from the Gulf Coast to the Carolinas will bring precipitation for much of the southeast U.S.
