After last week's intense weather stories, much of the nation experienced a relatively quiet weather pattern this Sunday.

In the East, a cold front extending through the Southeast and into the lower Southern Plains became nearly stationary on Sunday. Limited moisture pooling along this frontal boundary from the Gulf of Mexico triggered shower and scattered thunderstorm activity along the Central Gulf Coast in the coastal areas of Louisiana and Mississippi through the afternoon.

Stronger thunderstorms were accompanied by periods of brief heavy downpours, occasional lightning strikes, and winds gusting to about 30 mph. Meanwhile, to the north, drier weather prevailed in much of the Midwest and Northeast as high pressure moved into the Ohio Valley.

In the Northern Plains, weather disturbances from Saskatchewan, Canada dropped into the region with areas of rain, freezing rain, and snow through the afternoon. This precipitation was expected to change into rain by Sunday night.

In the West, moist onshore flow continued into the Pacific Northwest today and allowed light rain and drizzle to continue along the coast through first half of the day. Inland showers tapered off during the morning.

SUNDAY'S WEATHER EXTREMES:

HIGHEST TEMPERATURE (DEGREES F).........................93 Camarillo, Calif.

HIGHEST HEAT INDEX (DEGREES F)..........................90 Brownsville, Texas

LOWEST TEMPERATURE (DEGREES F)..........................10 Alamosa, Colo.

LOWEST WIND CHILL (DEGREES F)...........................-44 San Diego Brown, Calif.

HIGHEST WIND GUST (MPH).................................64 Annette Island, Alaska
