Reporter: AP

A fairly strong cold front will continue moving through the eastern third of the country Tuesday, eventually moving off the eastern seaboard by the end of the day. The front itself will contain enough moisture to produce moderate rain from the Appalachian Mountains through the Mid Atlantic. Additional moderate rain is expected through New England as the front moves eastward. As the day progresses, however, rain will gradually wane from south to north. The heaviest rain is expected to fall from western North Carolina through southern New York and could total nearly an inch. In addition to the rain that falls, the front could be accompanied by breezy to strong winds as it passes.
The indirect effect of the front will be due to the cold air that will continue to pour into the Upper Midwest. This will translate to another cold day from the Dakotas through Michigan, while a cold overnight into Wednesday is anticipated from the Dakotas through Maine.
In the West, moist flow from the Pacific will continue to flow into the Northwest, bringing more rain and high elevation snow from Washington through the mountains of Idaho. This precipitation is not expected to be heavy in nature, but any snow accumulation is noteworthy.
The Northeast will see a range of temperatures from the 30s to the 50s, while the Southeast will rise into the 60s and 70s. The Northern Plains will rise into the 20s, 30s, and 40s, while the Southwest will see temperatures in the 60s and 70s for the most part.
HIGHEST TEMPERATURE (DEGREES F)................84 Sarasota, Fla.
HIGHEST HEAT INDEX (DEGREES F)..................87 Kahului, Hawaii
LOWEST TEMPERATURE (DEGREES F)................-13 Worland, Wyo.
LOWEST WIND CHILL (DEGREES F)......................-28 Eagle, Alaska
HIGHEST WIND GUST (MPH)..........................64 Mt. Washington, N.H.
HIGHEST PRECIPITATION (INCHES)......................1.23 Cullman, Ala.
The great dust bowl era was kicked off on this date in 1933 as a dust storm spread from Montana to Maine on the 12th and 13th. Black rain was observed in New York and brown snow was reported in Vermont. Because of the dust, zero visibility was observed in South Dakota, Minnesota, and Iowa.
