...Colder temperatures forecast for the western U.S. and warmer for the
eastern states...

With a deep upper-level trough in place over the western states, below
average temperatures are forecast to persist through midweek for much of
this region.
A few areas with lingering snow across the Intermountain West will
dissipate this evening. Mostly dry conditions are expected for the valleys
and lower terrain.

The eastern U.S. will continue to have warmer temperatures as the ridge
remains anchored in the coming days. Some locations could even achieve
record high temperatures with readings breaking the 90-degree mark. A
strong, slow moving cold front with multiple waves of low pressure
developing along it will span from the Upper Great Lakes to the Southern
Rockies. Widespread showers and a few thunderstorms will develop along
this frontal boundary - it may be heavy at times which would increase the
risk for excessive rainfall and possible flash flooding.

Hurricane Maria is forecast to track near parts of the East Coast for the
middle of next week.  Current indications suggest this storm may come
within 200 miles of North Carolina's Outer Banks before heading out to
sea.  In the meantime, expect rough surf and high seas for the Southeast
and Mid-Atlantic coasts.  The National Hurricane Center has the latest
information and forecast track regarding this hurricane.
