An upper level trough of low pressure over the Great Basin will move east into the northern and central Rockies with scattered showers and thunderstorms. In its' wake another short-wave trough and cold front will dive into the Pacific Northwest from British Columbia tonight. Elsewhere across the West a drying trend will develop along the Pacific Coast, with light offshore winds over California. Warming and drying will also spread into the desert Southwest. East of the Rockies, a deep trough of low pressure will begin to draw deep moisture in from Hurricane Joaquin, with widespread showers and thunderstorms over much of the eastern U.S. The exception will be the central and southern Plains where it will remain dry and breezy, but cooler.
