Weather Outlook

A cold front will push through the northern Plains with a stalled-out surface front stretching across northern Utah into northern California.

Another Pacific cold front will move into the Pacific Northwest.

Dry and breezy post-frontal conditions will continue in portions of southern Idaho and southwest/central/northern Montana.

Thunderstorms are expected to develop over the northern and central Plains and into the Great Lakes ahead of the cold front.

Showers and thunderstorms are also likely near a surface front moving through the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic.

Isolated to widely scattered thunderstorms will remain possible over far eastern Arizona, much of New Mexico, and into southern Colorado.

More rain is expected along the Alaska coast with isolated to scattered coverage in the interior
