...SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST AND  
FLORIDA...  
   
..AUTUMN ARRIVES ACROSS THE EASTERN U.S
 
 
A STRONG COLD FRONT WILL PUSH OFF THE EAST COAST BY MONDAY  
AFTERNOON WHILE IT CONTINUES MOVING SOUTHWARD ACROSS FLORIDA.  
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL MOVE ALONG WITH THE FRONT--WITH  
LINGERING PRECIPITATION ALONG THE SOUTHEAST COAST. SOME OF THIS  
ACTIVITY COULD LEAD TO ISOLATED FLASH FLOODING. AS THE FRONT  
PASSES, DRY CONDITIONS WILL FOLLOW. HOWEVER, THE FRONT WILL SLOWLY  
MOVE SOUTHWARD ACROSS FLORIDA. EASTERLY FLOW WILL BRING DEEP  
TROPICAL MOISTURE TO THE STATE AHEAD OF THE FRONT WHICH COULD  
DELIVER HEAVY RAINFALL ESPECIALLY ALONG THE EAST COAST ON TUESDAY  
AND WEDNESDAY. BY THURSDAY, THE FRONT WILL STALL ADJACENT TO SOUTH  
FLORIDA WHICH WILL KEEP TROPICAL MOISTURE IN PLACE WHILE THE FRONT  
ACTS AS A FOCAL POINT FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO CONTINUE.  
 
BEHIND THE FRONT, MUCH COOLER AND SEASONAL CONDITIONS WILL FOLLOW  
FROM NEW ENGLAND TO THE SOUTHERN PLAINS. HOWEVER, WARMER THAN  
NORMAL TEMPERATURES WILL BE IN PLACE ACROSS THE WESTERN AND  
CENTRAL U.S. EARLY THIS WEEK. BY WEDNESDAY, MOST OF THE U.S. WITH  
THE EXCEPTION OF THE SOUTHEAST, FLORIDA, AND PARTS OF THE PACIFIC  
NORTHWEST WILL EXPERIENCE HIGH TEMPERATURES 5-7 DEGREES ABOVE  
NORMAL ALONG WITH DRY CONDITIONS.
