Weather Underground Forecast for Wednesday, October 10, 2012.

A cold front will push through the Northeast on Wednesday bringing showers, a few thunderstorms and dense cloud cover to the region. Ahead of the cold front, temperatures will warm up due to southerly winds drawing warm air out of the south. This warm moist air will help enhance rainfall along the front, where locally heavy precipitation is possible.

Behind the front, the Great Lakes and upper Mid-West will feel the chill of cold Canadian air plunging southward. Along with the cool temperatures, cloudy skies should make for a gloomy day across much of the region.

South of the lakes, generally clear skies are anticipated throughout the Southeast and Gulf Coast, though Texas should see a few areas of cloudiness as a weak area of low pressure sits atop the state.

High pressure in the eastern Plains will keep much of the nationÂÂ's mid-section clear and dry on Wednesday with highs typical to cool for this time of year.

In the West, skies are expected to be generally clear, although low pressure of the coast of central California could produce showers or thunderstorms in the state, especially around the coastal mountains and hills.

This low is helping to block other storm systems from reaching the West Coast, but as it slides east later this week, a series of storms will line up to bring wet weather to the Northwest.

Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Tuesday have ranged from a morning low of 16 degrees at Stanley, Idaho to a high of 91 degrees at Edinburg, Texas
