Rain dampens Texas areas By The Associated Press Rain splattered into the Pacific Northwest, the interior Northeast and parts of the South today. Most of the nation in between had fair anti pleasant weather. Up to an inch of rain soaked sections of the Northwest during the night as a fresh surge of cold air dipped into the region. Showers ranged eastward into Montana and turned to snow at higher elevations. Drizzle dampened an area from Ohio and West Virginia to New York and Pennsylvania, and clouds spreading over the Southern Plains spilled rain across much of Texas and into parts of Oklahoma and New Mexico. Clear and cool weather from the Rockies through the western Great Lakes region tumbled temperatures into the 30s and 40s over most of the na- tion's interior overnight. Similarly crisp readings dipped well into the South. Temperatures before dawn ranged from 22 at Evanston, Wyo., to 75 at Key West, Fla.
