...NO SEVERE THUNDERSTORM AREAS FORECAST...
Severe storms are not expected through tonight.
As an upper trough continues to advance slowly eastward across
eastern Canada and the northeastern U.S., a weakening cut-off low
will linger over the Southwest/Great Basin. At the surface, high
pressure will largely prevail over the CONUS, though a weak/remnant
front will linger across north Florida and the Gulf Coast region.
A few lightning strikes will remain possible this evening/overnight
near the remnant front, however most lightning-producing convection
should remain offshore. As such, the thunder area is being trimmed
-- though not eliminated -- in the vicinity of the frontal zone.
Still, coverage of onshore lightning should remain sparse, at best.
