Weather across the nation on November 7, 2016

A wave of low pressure transitioned eastward over the central Plains.

This area of low pressure interacted with a warm and humid air mass streaming northward from the Gulf of Mexico. This interaction resulted in rain and thunderstorms across the southern Plains, the central Plains, the western edge of the Midwest and the lower Mississippi Valley.

Locally heavy rain impacted the western Gulf Coast. Gulfport, Miss., reported a midday total of 1.77 inches of rain. Beaumont, Texas, reported a midday total of 1.49 inches of rain. Temperatures spiked 10 to 25 degrees above normal across the upper Midwest on Monday.

Milwaukee, Wis., recorded a midday high of 65 degrees. Detroit, Mich., recorded a midday high of 61 degrees. Most states east of the Mississippi River experienced dry weather due to a ridge of high pressure over the northern Mid-Atlantic.

Out west, a Pacific cold frontal boundary approached the West Coast. Light, scattered showers developed ahead of this frontal boundary over western Washington. High pressure influenced dry weather across most of the Pacific Northwest, the Intermountain West, the Great Basin and the Southwest. Boise, Idaho, recorded a midday high of 52 degrees. Los Angeles, Calif., recorded a midday high of 71 degrees.
