NATIONAL SUMMARY                   
 
The first day of autumn was brought in with a fall-like feel to it 
over the Northeast yesterday as temperatures ran 10 to 20 degrees 
lower than they did the day before across the region's interior. The 
drop in temperature was not nearly as significant closer to the 
region's coast, only running 4 degrees lower in New York City than 
the day before. Below-normal temperatures were also experienced over 
much of the Midwest and down into the Tennessee Valley.
Not all of the East experienced below-normal temperatures for the 
first day of fall with highs along the coasts of the Southeast 
climbing to near 90 F. Showers and thunderstorms were seen over this 
area as well with over an inch of rain falling in Melbourne, Florida. 
A few storms even produced wind gusts strong enough to bring down 
trees in Ridgeland, South Carolina and Coney, Georgia.
Temperatures ran above normal across much of the Plains, Rockies and 
the West with a zone of spotty showers and thunderstorms stretching 
from New Mexico to Nebraska and over Oregon. Much of this shower and 
thunderstorm activity held off until the afternoon hours with some of 
the heavier storms causing flash flooding in Las Cruces and Silver 
City, New Mexico.
