...COASTAL STORM TO BRING RAIN AND MAYBE SOME WET SNOW ACROSS
PORTIONS OF THE CAROLINAS SUNDAY MORNING...

...MUCH COLDER TEMPERATURES TO ARRIVE INTO THE NORTH-CENTRAL U.S.
SUNDAY INTO MONDAY ALONG WITH BLIZZARD CONDITIONS AT TIMES...

...WARMING TREND EXPECTED ALONG THE WEST COAST INTO EARLY NEXT
WEEK WHILE REMAINING DRY...

A DEVELOPING FRONTAL SYSTEM JUST EAST OF THE FLORIDA PENINSULA
WILL BY ACCOMPANIED BY A STRENGTHENING SURFACE LOW TONIGHT INTO
EARLY SUNDAY. THE SURFACE LOW IS EXPECTED TO TRACK CLOSE ENOUGH TO
THE SOUTHEAST COAST OF THE U.S. WHERE IT WILL BRING LOCALLY HEAVY
RAIN TO EASTERN NORTH AND SOUTH CAROLINA BEGINNING OVERNIGHT
TONIGHT. AS THE STORM STRENGTHENS, SOME WET SNOW AND MINOR
ACCUMULATIONS COULD DEVELOP OVER PORTIONS OF THE CAROLINAS EARLY
SUNDAY MORNING. ANY ACCUMULATIONS SHOULD BE MINOR, BUT WINDS WILL
BECOME GUSTY DURING THE DAY ON SUNDAY ALONG THE ENTIRE SOUTHEAST
COAST. AS THE SURFACE LOW ADVANCES INTO SUNDAY NIGHT AND EARLY
MONDAY MORNING, IT IS EXPECTED TO CLIP SOUTHEAST NEW ENGLAND WITH
A FEW INCHES OF SNOWFALL WHILE THE HEAVIEST SNOW STAYS OUT OVER
THE ATLANTIC.

A DEEP SURFACE LOW WILL TRACK ACROSS THE UPPER MISSISSIPPI VALLEY
ON SUNDAY, WITH A COLD FRONT TRAILING TO ITS SOUTHWEST. IT IS
ACTUALLY A SECONDARY COLD FRONT THAT WILL USHER IN MUCH COLDER
TEMPERATURES FOR THE NORTH-CENTRAL U.S. BY LATE IN THE DAY IN
SUNDAY. TEMPERATURES DEPARTURES FROM NORMAL HIGHS ARE EXPECTED TO
DROP FROM +25 TODAY TO -10 FOR MONDAY. IN ADDITION, WINDS WILL
STRENGTHEN THROUGH TONIGHT AND SPREAD SOUTHEASTWARD ACROSS THE
REGION ON SUNDAY ALONG WITH SNOW SHOWERS. WHILE SNOW ACCUMULATIONS
WILL BE LIGHT, THE COMBINATION OF FALLING TEMPERATURES, BLOWING
SNOW AND GUSTY WINDS WILL MAKE FOR BLIZZARD CONDITIONS AT TIMES,
FORCING TRAVEL TO BE HAZARDOUS.

ACROSS THE WESTERN U.S., A LARGE UPPER LEVEL RIDGE WILL DEVELOP
OVER THE ENTIRE REGION, GIVEN A REPRIEVE FROM RECENT WET/SNOWY
WEATHER. THE UPPER RIDGE WILL PREVENT RAIN/SNOW FROM IMPACTING THE
WEST, WHILE ALSO ENSURING WARMING TEMPERATURES THROUGH MONDAY.
HIGH TEMPERATURES FOR SUNDAY AND MONDAY ARE FORECAST TO BE BETWEEN
5 AND 15 DEGREES ABOVE AVERAGE FROM WESTERN WASHINGTON TO SOUTHERN
CALIFORNIA AND SOUTHWESTERN ARIZONA.

...ABOVE AVERAGE TEMPERATURES EXPECTED TODAY FOR THE NORTHERN
PLAINS...

...LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM TO BRING RAIN, SNOW, AND HIGH WINDS FROM
THE NORTHERN ROCKIES AND NORTHERN PLAINS...

...RAIN AND SNOW POSSIBLE ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE COASTAL
SOUTHEASTERN U.S...

A PACIFIC COLD FRONT WILL MOVE FROM THE NORTHERN ROCKIES INTO THE
NORTHERN PLAINS TODAY. THE SYSTEM WILL BRING A MIX OF RAIN AND
SNOW SHOWERS, AS WELL AS THE POTENTIAL FOR HIGH WINDS TO THE
REGION. HIGH WIND WATCHES AND WARNINGS HAVE BEEN ISSUED FROM
PORTIONS OF THE NORTHERN ROCKIES TO THE NORTHERN PLAINS, WHERE
WIND GUSTS IN EXCESS OF 60 MPH ARE POSSIBLE TODAY AND SUNDAY.
AHEAD OF THE COLD FRONT, WARM DOWNSLOPE WINDS WILL RESULT IN ABOVE
AVERAGE TEMPERATURES TODAY ACROSS THE NORTHERN PLAINS, WHERE
AFTERNOON HIGH TEMPERATURES MAY RISE TO 15 TO 25 DEGREES ABOVE
AVERAGE. AS THE SYSTEM MOVES INTO THE UPPER MIDWEST SATURDAY NIGHT
INTO SUNDAY MORNING, SNOW MAY COMBINE WITH WIND GUSTS IN EXCESS OF
50 MPH TO PRODUCE BLIZZARD CONDITIONS FOR SOME AREAS. SNOWFALL
ACCUMULATIONS OF 1 TO 5 INCHES ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE
NORTHERN PLAINS AND UPPER MIDWEST FROM THIS SYSTEM. THE SYSTEM
WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE QUICKLY EAST, SPREADING AREAS OF SNOW ACROSS
MUCH OF THE GREAT LAKES SUNDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHT, WITH A MIX OF
RAIN AND SNOW POSSIBLE FARTHER SOUTH ACROSS THE OHIO VALLEY,
APPALACHIANS, AND THE TENNESSEE VALLEY.

AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE WILL DEVELOP TODAY ALONG A STALLED COLD
FRONT OVER THE BAHAMAS. THIS SURFACE LOW WILL GRADUALLY DEEPEN
THROUGH TONIGHT AS IT MOVES NORTHEASTWARD. ON SUNDAY, THE SYSTEM
WILL BEGIN TO UNDERGO A PERIOD OF MORE RAPID DEEPENING OFF THE
SOUTHEAST U.S. COASTLINE. WHILE THE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL
REMAIN OFFSHORE, IT IS FORECAST TO BRING SOME PRECIPITATION TO THE
SOUTHEAST U.S. COASTAL REGION. SHOWERS AND POSSIBLY A FEW
THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS THE FLORIDA PENINSULA TODAY.
LATE SATURDAY NIGHT INTO EARLY  SUNDAY MORNING, A MIX OF RAIN AND
SNOW IS POSSIBLE ACROSS EASTERN PORTIONS OF THE CAROLINAS. RAIN
WILL PERSIST ACROSS THE OUTER BANKS THROUGH SUNDAY AFTERNOON
