Synopsis: A cold front should make its way into the Crossroads between 9 and 10 pm on Friday night.  There will be enough energy and instability to promote hail, heavy rain and strong winds that could bring severe weather conditions.

For the long term, Saturday through Wednesday, high pressure will be in Southern California while storms move to the areas near the Great Lakes.   High pressure will move east over the weekend.  Storms from the PNW and Canada will move south into the Great Basin area of the United States.  These storms will move through the Rocky Mountains and off to the northeast later in the week.  The cold front will move into the northwest Gulf (stalling) before turning around and moving back into the area as a warm front on Saturday and Sunday.  A return of Gulf moisture on Monday and Tuesday could lead to showers as well.  Most of these showers should stay over the water.  Sunshine with warmer temperatures will move in the rest of the week with another front moving out of the northwest next Thursday or Friday.

Tropical Update: Tropical Depression Lisa is moving west at 12 mph with 30 mph winds is bringing areas of flash flooding across portions of southeastern Mexico.

A feature several hundred miles southeast of Bermuda is bringing unorganized showers and thunderstorms.  The system is moving very little but should move west over the weekend.  There is only a 10 percent chance of further development and strengthening.
