Low pressure, from down in the tropics, continues to pump ample moisture into the Southwest. Parts of Southern California picked up heavy rain on Friday and some flooding occurred. Several cities set daily rainfall records. Parts of the San Bernardino Mountains had already picked up over four inches of rain by Friday evening. Rain across Southern California will wind down overnight. Rain will also taper off over southern Nevada in cities like Las Vegas. Look for more heavy rain across Arizona where many rivers and streams will easily be in flood stage by early Saturday. The combination of heavy rain and melting snow will keep the flooding going through Saturday. Some higher elevations will see three to five inches of rain with one to two inches in the lower elevations. Rain will increase across southern Utah, southwest Colorado and New Mexico on Saturday. Meanwhile a weak front will produce showers across the Pacific Northwest on Saturday. Temperatures will be relatively mild across northern sections of the region.

After a chilly night across the Florida Peninsula, temperatures will begin to rebound on Saturday. Lows are expected to plunge into the mid-30s in Orlando, upper 30s in Tampa, and low 40s in Miami and Ft. Lauderdale. Elsewhere, Rain will spread across Texas on Saturday and into the Southeast on Sunday. Temperatures will be a bit milder across the Southeast.



Low pressure is moving away from the Northeast but it continues to get stronger. As a result, wind in the 20-30 mph range can still be expected from Boston to Philadelphia on Saturday. Look for average temperatures across the region on Saturday and above average temperatures in western sections of the region on Sunday. A bit of light snow is expected across the eastern Great Lakes on Saturday.



More record high temperatures were found across the northern Plains on Friday. Most of the region continues to see mild temperatures and this trend will continue through the weekend. Places like the Twin Cities are looking at bare ground. Over the weekend, a storm system will spread precipitation northeastward from out of the Southwest. Precipitation in the Midwest will be in the form of rain, however, with rain spreading into cities like Des Moines, Kansas City, St. Louis and Chicago before the end of Sunday.
