Weather Underground midday recap for Monday, May 06, 2013.
Wet weather conditions continued for the Southeast on Monday, while chances of showers and thunderstorms spread across the West Coast States.
In the East, a slow moving low lingered over the Southeast while an associated cold front pushed eastward across the southeastern corner of the nation. Winds wrapping around the system pulled ample moisture from the Atlantic Ocean inland, kicking up areas of scattered light to moderate showers and periods of heavy rain across portions of the Lower Ohio Valley into the eastern Tennessee Valley and parts of the northern Southeast and Mid-Atlantic. While severe thunderstorms were not anticipated with this system, prolonged showers and periods of heavy rainfall continue the threat of flooding across the region.
In the West, a closed low began to move inland across California, bringing scattered showers and chances of thunderstorms to northern California, the Sierra Nevadas, and parts of the southern and central California coast and valleys. Elsewhere in the West, areas of scattered showers and high elevation snow developed across the Four Corners and into areas f western Texas.
Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Monday have ranged from a morning low of 23 degrees at Stanley, Idaho to a midday high of 85 degrees at Edinburg, Texas
