The nation's weather

Another storm front will move through the Lower Mississippi Valley and Ohio Valley at the start of the week. While this front will not be intense enough to produce the amount of severe weather that occurred last week, the Storm Prediction Center forecasts a slight chance of severe weather from eastern Texas through southern Arkansas. Severe thunderstorms along with tornadoes are possible in this area.

Meanwhile, a storm will move out of the Upper Midwest and into Canada. This storm brought very strong winds to the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest on Saturday and will continue to do so much of Sunday.

Rain will spread through the Upper Mississippi Valley and Ohio Valley as well, producing possible areas of heavy precipitation.

The West will remain dry as a high pressure system dominates, while the strong winds that blew through the area Saturday will weaken.

Temperatures in the Northeast will rise into the 70s, while the Southeast will see readings in the 80s and 90s. The Northern Plains will rise into the 40s and 50s, while the Southern Plains will see temperatures in the 80s and 90s and the Northeast, into the 60s.

Temperatures in the Lower 48 states ranged Saturady from a morning low of 5 degrees at Monarch Pass, Colo., to a high of 95 degrees at Falfurrias, Texas.
