  NATIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY:
   In the East, quiet weather is expected east of the Appalachians

centered over the Nations Heartland will push a cold front into the
western sections of the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys today. Expect
scattered showers from southern Michigan to Mississippi and
Alabama.

centered over Arkansas and Missouri will slowly push into southern
Illinois by tonight. This system will drag a cold front across
