[August 18, 2009]  (AP)  An active weather pattern was forecast to remain across the central and southeastern regions of the nation Tuesday. 

The remnants of Tropical Depression Claudette were expected to produce unsettling weather activity as energy associated with the system lifted northward through the Tennessee Valley. Scattered showers and locally heavy downpours with thunderstorms and strong winds were expected throughout the Tennessee Valley and regions along the northern Gulf Coast.

Areas of hail accompanying stronger thunderstorms in northern Mississippi and western Tennessee were possible.

Meanwhile, convective activity was to continue to spark up across the central U.S. as a frontal boundary remained stalled from the upper Great Lakes to the southern Plains. Abundant moisture would enhance instability across these regions, leading to scattered showers, isolated heavy rainfall, and isolated thunderstorms from the lower Great Lakes through Kansas and eastern Colorado.

It was possible, storms in the central and southern Plains may turn severe and may be accompanied by damaging winds and hail, while areas of excessive rainfall would create a chance for flash flooding across these regions.

Elsewhere, warm and pleasant weather was expected throughout much of the West as high pressure builds into the Pacific Northwest and Great Basin.

Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Monday ranged from a low of 28 degrees at Big Piney, Wyo., to a high of 109 degrees at Blythe, Calif.
