..no severe thunderstorm areas forecast... 

severe thunderstorms are not expected across the U.S. On Thursday. 

Northern-stream upper troughing is progged to persist across eastern 
Canada and the Great Lakes/northeast Thursday, shifting gradually 
eastward/southeastward with time. Meanwhile farther west, troughing 
over The Rockies -- drifting slowly northeastward -- is expected to 
weaken with time while ridging persists over the south-central 
states through the period. 

At the surface, a cold front -- shifting off the New England and 
mid-Atlantic coasts at the start of the period, will progress 
southeastward across the southern states, leaving a large area of 
high pressure in its wake to cover the majority of the U.S. By the 
end of the period. 

Along with potential for showers and a few thunderstorms ahead of 
the slowly advancing southern/eastern U.S. Cold front, afternoon 
showers and isolated thunderstorms are also expected across portions 
of The Four Corners states and vicinity near the weakening upper 
low/trough. Finally, showers -- and perhaps a few thunderstorms -- 
are expected over the upper Great Lakes region, mainly during the 
second half of the period. In all areas, risk for severe storms 
appears to be minimal.
