This NOAA satellite image taken Wednesday, October 13, 2010 at 10:45 AM EDT shows scattered cloud cover over the Eastern Valleys and portions of the Upper Great Lakes as a low pressure trough drops across the Upper Mississippi Valley and a cold front moves through the eastern Midwest. Areas of scattered showers and thunderstorms develop near portions of the front in as it becomes stretched from Michigan through Arkansas during by the afternoon. Increased cloud cover and precipitation due to the cold front and the aforementioned trough marks an end to the unseasonably warm, summer-like weather over the region. In the south, deep tropical moisture spreads across southern Florida due to Hurricane Paula, located about 55 miles southwest of the western tip of Cuba. Rich moisture over the regions fuels scattered showers and thunderstorms with periods of heavy rainfall across the Florida Straits. (AP PHOTO/WEATHER UNDERGROUND) less
