A stationary front from western New York to southern Alabama brought clouds and scattered rain over most of the East on Sunday, as the Midwest stayed dry and chilly.
The West was quiet with mostly clear skies and mild temperatures. One exception was the Pacific Northwest, which had clouds and misty rain as a weak cold front pushed over Washington.
Some rain and thunderstorms also hit the Ohio River Valley, Tennessee River Valley, eastern Great Lakes, Deep South and portions of the Southeast.
Rainfall generally ranged from 0.25 to 1.25 inches, with the biggest accumulations in parts of Ohio, eastern Kentucky, eastern Alabama and western Georgia. Montgomery, Ala., had more than 1 1/2 inches of rain.
Patchy dense fog was found across portions of Oklahoma, Arkansas, northern Texas, Missouri and Illinois. Visibility was reduced to less than a half-mile at times.
In the Lower 48 states, temperatures Sunday ranged from 95 degrees in Thermal, Calif., to 18 degrees in Hettinger, N.D.
