A cold frontal boundary will stretch across the upper Intermountain West and the northern Plains on Monday. As this system collides with warm, humid air from the Gulf of Mexico, strong to severe thunderstorms will develop along the northern tier of the country. Severe thunderstorms will be possible over North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and western Wisconsin. These thunderstorms will be capable of producing large hail, dangerous straight line winds and isolated tornadoes. In addition, heavy rain associated with these thunderstorms will bring a threat of flash flooding to southeast North Dakota and northern Minnesota. High pressure will keep conditions mostly clear across the central and southern Plains, as well as the middle Mississippi Valley.
A low pressure system will continue to inch eastward over the eastern Gulf Coast and the Southeast. As this system draws warm, humid air from the Gulf of Mexico, strong thunderstorms and heavy rain will result across the region. Showers and thunderstorms are also expected to develop along the southern and central Appalachians, while scattered showers will be possible across the northern Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast. High pressure will keep conditions mostly clear over the Ohio Valley, the middle Mississippi Valley, the southern Plains and the central Plains. Temperature will remain 5 to 10 degrees below normal from the southern Plains to the Mid-Atlantic.
A cold front will stretch across the southern Plains, the western Gulf Coast and the Tennessee Valley on Saturday. As this system overrides a warm, humid air mass from the Gulf of Mexico, strong thunderstorms will develop across southern Texas, the Gulf Coast and the Tennessee Valley. In addition, temperatures are expected to drop 10 to 20 degrees below normal from the southern and central Plains to the southern Appalachians. Low pressure along the western end of the front will bring rain and thunderstorms to parts of the Intermountain West and the central Plains. Flash flooding will be possible along valleys adjacent to sloped terrain.

A strong low pressure system will continue to inch eastward across the southern tier of the country. This system will move slowly across the southern Plains and the lower Mississippi Valley. As warm, humid air interacts with this area of low pressure, strong to severe thunderstorms will develop across Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky. These thunderstorms will be capable of producing large hail, dangerous straight line winds and isolated tornadoes. In addition, heavy rain associated with these thunderstorms will bring a threat of flash flooding to the lower Mississippi Valley. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will also be possible over New Mexico and Colorado.

As warm, humid air interacts with this system, strong to severe thunderstorms will develop across the nation's midsection. Severe thunderstorms will be possible over Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, northern Texas, Kansas, Oklahoma and western Nebraska. These thunderstorms will be capable of producing large hail, dangerous straight line winds and isolated tornadoes. Monsoonal moisture will also bring scattered showers and thunderstorms to parts of the Great Basin and the Desert Southwest. The West Coast will stay mostly clear of precipitation due to a ridge of high pressure over the eastern Pacific.
A cold front will extend across the upper Intermountain West, the northern Plains and the upper Mississippi Valley. This system will override a warm, humid air mass to initiate widespread thunderstorms across the nation's midsection. Severe thunderstorms will be possible over southeast Minnesota, Wisconsin, eastern Iowa and northern Illinois. These thunderstorms will be capable of producing large hail, dangerous straight line winds and isolated tornadoes. Disorganized showers and thunderstorms will also be possible over the northern Plains, the Ohio Valley, the Great Lakes and parts of the Northeast.
