The nation's weather

A stubborn front will be the main weather producer Sunday as it stretches from east Texas through the Ohio Valley. This front will produce widespread thunderstorms and heavy rain in an area that received abundant precipitation in recent days.

The Storm Prediction Center has issued a slight chance of severe weather from eastern Texas through the Tennessee Valley and Mid-Atlantic due to the moisture from this front.

Late in the day, Oklahoma and Missouri could be particularly hard hit with heavy rain and thunderstorms.

Scattered rain and high elevation snow showers will continue for parts of the West, including the Northwest and the Rockies.

Northeast temperatures will rise into the 50s and 60s, while the Southeast will see readings in the 80s and 90s. The southern Plains will rise into the 80s and 90s, while the Northwest will record 50s and 60s.

Temperatures in the lower 48 states ranged Saturday from a morning low of -2 degrees at Yellowstone, Wyo., to a high of 97 degrees at Laredo, Texas.
