A fast-moving disturbance migrating across the the Great Lakes will produce scattered showers and thunderstorms along its path to Pennsylvania, New York and New England tonight. This disturbance will likely pass over, and briefly interact with the coastal low moving up the US portion of the Atlantic shoreline. A coastal low, currently producing a narrow band of moderate-to-heavy rainfalls and intermittent rain showers over the Outer Banks, will press northeastward into the Gulf of Maine later tonight. Later today and through tonight, precipitation will become more widespread for a time over New England. An upper-level low centered over southern Nevada will be moving slowly northwestward today and tonight. Increasing clouds and the threat of thunderstorms will gradually shift from the high deserts of Nevada and the Sierra Nevada, to the southern Cascades and southeast Oregon and southern Idaho.

On June 3, the highest level of drought—D4, or exceptional drought—was noted in portions of California (25%), Oklahoma (21%), Texas (9%), Nevada (8%), Kansas (2%), and Colorado (2%). California also led the nation with 77% coverage of extreme to exceptional drought (D3 to D4). In addition, California topped the U.S. with 70% of its rangeland and pastures rated in very poor to poor condition on June 1, according to USDA. Following California were New Mexico, Arizona, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Nevada. Details...
