ThInsuranceis front had produced severe weather in the eastern half of the country over the past few days and would have a chance of doing so Monday. It would produce heavy rain and thunderstorms east of the Appalachians, with some of these thunderstorms capable of producing tornadoes from southern Alabama through the Southeast Coast.

There would also be a concentrated area of showers and thunderstorms in the Ohio Valley that would carry the chance of tornadic development.

In the West, a storm was expected to slam into the Northwest Coast, instigating heavy rain and high elevation snow mainly in Washington and Oregon. This precipitation would spill into the Intermountain West as the day progressed. This storm would also be intense enough to produce strong wind in the area. high wind warnings were posted from Washington through Montana and southward into Nevada.

Mostly dry conditions were expected in the Plains.

The Northeast would rise into the 70s and 80s, while the Southeast would see temperatures in the 80s and 90s. The northern Plains would rise into the 50s and 60s, while the southern Plains would see temperatures in the 80s and 90s. The Northwest would rise into the 50s and 60s in the lower elevations.

Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Sunday ranged from a low of 12 degrees at Leadville, Colo., to a high of 98 degrees at Chesapeake, Va.
