Current Conditions (Nov. 13)

Locally, there is a high pressure centered over IL and IN and the temperatures will reach a high in the mid 40's with some overcast in the area. Tonight the lows will drop down into the low to mid 30's and the cloud cover will persist due to trapped boundary layer moisture.

On a national scale, there is a cold front moving into the NW US associated with the low pressure off of the NW coast of Washington. This low pressure system will continue to produce heavy rain and thunderstorms. It will also produce some snow in the mountains in this area. Due to the strong pressure gradients, high winds will also be associated with the system.

Nearly zonal flow is dominating central US. A slight ridge over the SW is bringing relatively higher temperatures to this area.
