Severe thunderstorms are not expected through tonight across the Lower 48 states. ...Synopsis... A large-scale trough over the West Coast will gradually move east into the Interior West during the period. Showers and isolated thunderstorms are forecast from central CA north into western OR within a corridor of very cold mid-level temperatures. A surface low initially near the MT/ND border will move into southern Canada while a lee cyclone develops over northeast CO late. Isolated thunderstorms are possible over eastern UT/western CO as strengthening ascent and a cooling mid-level profile promote the risk for general thunderstorms. Farther east, surface high pressure will influence conditions from the lower MS Valley into the Northeast. ..Smith/Weinman.. 11/02/2022 Read more CHECK UPDATE ZOOM GRAPHIC
