THE BOTTOM LINE
Lots of Mid teens over eastern MT eastern WY western ND western SD this morning with L and M 20s over most of the rest of the Upper Plains into central MN and northern WI... and into western KS. Des Moines stayed at 36 Omaha at 32 Chicago 40 KC 41 St Louis 43 and Amarillo was 43.
Besides the current SOUTHERN rain event the next event OCT 13-14 comes a bit furthern North with 1-2 rains into northern ARK and southern MO and far southern ILL into sw KY. A Major Low hits the West coast Tuesday night/ Wednesday . The system will become a significant Eastern US Low for OCT 15-16 but the models again overnight are keeping this Low to the south...so that heavy rains fall over the Deep South then into the East Coast... and by passing most of the Midwest. Perhaps southern IND and OH wlill see some rains 10/16.
There may be another East Coast Low 10/18 but after that the Pattern shifts to the West coast. A new systm enters the West coast 10/118 and moves into the central Rockies and central Plains 10/19 bringing with it moderate rains that will move into the the WCB ... followed by another systen 10/22 and 10/23 that threatens to bring more rains to the Plains and Midwest.
