NATIONAL SUMMARY                   
-A cold front tracking across the East spread showers and 
thunderstorms across the region yesterday with colder air moving 
across the region in the wake of the front. Some of the strongest 
storms associated with this front moved over southeastern 
Pennsylvania late yesterday afternoon with wind gusts as high as 55 
mph, knocking over several trees and power lines. Hail ranging from 
the size of peas to quarters was also a byproduct of these storms. 
Warm air surged ahead of this cold front, reaching 80 degrees as far 
north as Georgetown, Del.          
-Temperatures remained above normal in the Plains with a few 
thunderstorms developing over western Kansas and western Nebraska 
late in the day, producing wind gusts up to 50 mph. A low pressure 
system tracking over the Pacific Northwest spread showers and a few 
thunderstorms across the region, as well as strong winds over the 
Four Corners region. This resulted in wind gusts ranging from 55 mph 
to 80 mph across Utah with the strongest winds north and east of Salt 
Lake City. While much of the precipitation from this system stayed 
out of the Southwest, a few morning showers managed to make their way 
far enough south to reach San Francisco, resulting in the city's 
first measurable rainfall since April 4.
