Behind this front, there is subsidence stabilizing a small area from Wisconsin into the lower Mississippi River Valley which is clearing up the skies. Florida is mainly being affected by the heavy line of thunderstorms with isolated cells off to the east of the Carolinas. A complex low pressure system is also currently over the Northern Plains causing a mixture of rain and snow to fall across this area and other regions of the country. (AP Photo/Weather Underground)MINEOLA, N.Y.
