NATIONAL SUMMARY

Another day of sweltering heat and humidity is in store for

the Central and Southern states tomorrow, and many record

highs will be in jeopardy as temperatures soar to levels

more typical of July than September. A frontal boundary

separating the extreme heat from cooler air settling back

into the Northeast will be the focal point for showers and

thunderstorms from the Ohio Valley to the mid-Atlantic. A

storm system will bring heavy rain and storms to the Upper

Midwest and northern Plains. Some of the strongest storms

could produce gusty winds, and areas hit repeatedly by

downpours could face flash flooding concerns. Elsewhere,

storms will dot the Florida Peninsula and southern Plains,

while dry and generally sunny weather graces the West.
