NATIONAL SUMMARY                   
Temperatures across the central and northern Plains soared well above 
normal yesterday. Highs rose into the upper 70s and lower 80s, 
putting locations 15 to 20 degrees above their normal high 
temperatures for this time of the year. The warm weather extended 
into the Northwest and down across the Southwest where daytime highs 
were 5 to 10 degrees above normal as well.
A low pressure system in the Northeast brought showers and rain to 
the region yesterday, where locations like Mount Washington, New 
Hampshire, picked up 0.47 of an inch of rain, and allowed clouds to 
linger in the Midwest and Great Lakes keeping temperatures cool. 
Unsettled weather in the Gulf of Mexico late yesterday developed into 
Tropical Depression 9, and if this system continues to strengthen it 
will become Tropical Storm Hanna.
