The Nation's Weather
Posted: $util.date("h:mm a MMM d, yyyy",$story.contentLiveDate,$timeZone)
Reporter: AP

Active weather will continue for the center of the nation on Friday as a low pressure system moves over the Upper Midwest and into the Great Lakes. This system will pull warm and moist air from the Gulf of Mexico, allowing for scattered showers and thunderstorms to develop across most of the Upper Midwest. At the same time, flow around the system will create a cold front that trails the system to the west. This cold front will extend from the Great Lakes through the Central and Southern Plains. This system has a history of producing severe thunderstorms with strong winds and large hail. Thus, there is a slight risk of severe thunderstorm development from the Upper Midwest through the Central and Southern Plains for Friday. Strong storms with large hail and strong winds may develop by the afternoon and evening hours.
Ahead of this system in the East, a low pressure system continues sliding northward up the East Coast. Most of the rainfall associated with this system will remain offshore in the Atlantic Ocean, however, rain showers may spread into the Northeast from Massachusetts through Maine.
In the West, monsoonal moisture over the Southwest will maintain shower and thunderstorm activity. Periods of heavy downpours will maintain chances of flooding across the Desert Southwest. Expect chances of thunderstorms to spread northward through the Great Basin and across the higher elevations of California.
