NATIONAL SUMMARY Rain will drench areas from New England to the mid-Atlantic coast as a system slowly departs the region tomorrow. Much of the Ohio Valley and part of the interior Northeast will get a break from the wet weather. Clusters of thunderstorms could erupt from southeastern Virginia to Florida. Locations across the south-central U.S. will get a much-needed break from the rain. A few storms may linger in South Texas. Clouds, showers and gusty winds are expected to chill northern and central Wisconsin and the upper and lower peninsulas of Michigan, while above-average warmth is expected to build across the Plains. Spotty, but locally drenching storms could dot the Southwest. Much of the rest of the country from the Central states to the West Coast can expect dry and mainly sunny conditions this day.
