National Forecast Overview

The low that brought all of the snow to the south and  east coast has moved off of the coast and high pressure has set in over the south east bringing with it clear skies and milder daytime and colder nighttime temperatures. A warm frontal boundary is moving over eastern NE with a cold front trailing behind to the west and north. Associated with the western cold front is a series of low pressure systems over MT and southern British Columbia and another low associated with the northern front located over northern MN. Cold temperatures are located behind the frontal system as a high moves in over ND. A trough is located over eastern CO and NM with a high pressure over CO and UT, influencing NM and AZ.

As the week comes to an end the low pressure systems will move southeasterly bringing snow to ND, parts of SD, NE, IA, KS, and WY. Rain will continue over western WA and OR with snow showers in western MT. There is a chance for snow in the CO Mountains as well as parts of northern UT, western WY, and ID. The high pressure over the south will push southeasterly as temperatures stay mild during the day and cold during the night and skies will stay clearer. Cold temperatures will set in behind the cold front over ND, SN, MN, IA, WI, MI, IL, IN, PA, NY, VT, NH, MA, CT, and ME. Expect snow in MI, OH, and lake effect snow over Lake Michigan, Erie, with rain mixed with snow in MN, WI, and parts of IA, IL, and IN. Snow showers will also be expected over ND, SD, MT, and parts of ID, UT, and WY.

The frontal boundary over eastern CO will continue to move south into TX. As it moves a low pressure system is formed and with it will be rain showers for the majority of central and eastern TX over the weekend.  The southwest will stay dry and seasonal.
