The forecast for Monday, November 19 calls for a pretty quiet day as a whole across the nation. A low pressure system looks to pose chances for showers and storms in Missouri, Arkansas and Kansas in the morning and early afternoon, before this threat for precipitation shifts to the northeast into states such as Iowa and Minnesota. No significant rainfall is expected. A strong low pressure system will be making its way onshore in the Northwest, bringing with it a threat for heavy rains and some heavy mountain snowfall. Travel delays are likely. High pressure will keep the Northern Plains relatively warm on Monday, and the same goes for the Southwest. An offshore system will spin up some showers and thunderstorms along the immediate East Coast, especially in the Carolinas and Virginia. The heaviest precipitation will be offshore.
Temperatures for Monday will stay in the low 50s in the Northwest as that strong storm system comes onshore. The Southwest and Southern Plains will stay in the 60s and 70s, a comfortable temperature at this time of the year. The Midwest and Ohio Valley will stay in the upper 40s and lower 50s, with the Ohio Valley most likely to reach into the mid 50s in the early afternoon. The Northeast will stay in the mid to upper 40s, while the Gulf Coast and Southeast will get treated to 60s and 70s. Mid 70s are possible in the southernmost regions of Florida.
