Weather Underground Forecast for Monday, April 07, 2014
A cold frontal boundary will extend from the western Gulf Coast to the Ohio Valley on Monday, while a ridge of high pressure will build across the Northeast.
An active weather system will shift eastward over the eastern Gulf Coast and the Southeast on Monday. Strong to severe thunderstorms are expected across eastern Alabama, the Florida Panhandle, Georgia and the Carolinas. Moderate showers and thunderstorms will also be possible over the central Gulf Coast, the Tennessee Valley, the Ohio Valley and the Mid-Atlantic. Spotty showers will linger behind the frontal boundary over the Plains and the Midwest, while snow showers are expected over the central Rockies and the northern Plains. High pressure will keep most of the Northeast clear of precipitation, although a wave of low pressure along the northern Great Lakes will bring a chance of snow showers to northern New England.
Out west, a strong ridge of high pressure will build over the eastern Pacific. Warm, clear conditions are expected across most of the West Coast, although an onshore flow from the Pacific will bring a chance of rain to northwestern Washington. The Southwest will experience very warm conditions, as temperatures are expected to range between the 80s and 90s across the southern California and Arizona deserts.
