NATIONAL SUMMARY                   
-It was a seasonable day across the East Thursday with temperatures 
running near or below normal across much of the region. Dry weather 
accompanied the cool air with the exception of spotty showers 
downwind of lakes Erie and Ontario. A disturbance moving into the 
Great Lakes brought showers to the region with some wet snowflakes 
mixing in over northern portions of Wisconsin, Minnesota and 
Michigan. Showers from this disturbance reached all the way south 
into Missouri. Chilly weather filtered in across the northern Plains 
behind the disturbance with the high in Bismarck, North Dakota, being 
kept in the 30s. This was the first time this has happened in 
Bismarck since April 16. It was a much warmer day farther south 
across the Plains with high pressure promoting dry conditions over 
the region.                        
-Rain began to build over the Pacific Northwest Thursday ahead of a 
system moving into the West. Dry conditions were over the rest of the 
region; however, this will not be the case for long; the approaching 
storm will spread rain over much of the region by the weekend.
