Showers lower Midwest, snow western Nebraska tomorrow

Squeezed between a cold front to the north and a stationary boundary to the south, scattered showers are expected to dampen parts of the lower Midwest tomorrow from Missouri to southern Michigan and northern Ohio. Farther west, light snow, responding to an easterly upslope flow south of a high pressure ridge, is forecast to whiten the ground in western Nebraska. High temperatures, meanwhile, will span a wide spectrum ranging from the upper teens (a bit below seasonal means) along the Canadian border of North Dakota and Minnesota to the 60s (unseasonably mild) in the Ohio Valley, Kentucky and southeast Missouri.



Light snow and snow showers will blanket southern Wyoming and northern and western Colorado tomorrow as a chilly high pressure area builds southward out of Canada. Areas of snow and snow showers will prevail in Utah, while a mix of rain and snow showers dot the higher terrain of New Mexico, Arizona and southern Nevada. The most significant precipitation, however, will be in California as a slow-moving low pressure area west of the Golden State creeps eastward. An area of general rain and showers seems likely from south of Eureka to north of L. A. The heaviest precipitation is expected in the coastal ranges and Sierra Nevada (where snow levels will be between 5000 and 7000 feet, north to south). High temperatures throughout the West will range from the teens in the Tetons to the 70s in southwest Arizona; overall, near to somewhat below seasonal averages.



Except for some morning rain and snow in Maine, the Northeast should enjoy a dry day Tuesday before showers squirt into parts of New York state tomorrow evening in advance of a rather potent cold front. But prior to the front’s arrival, temperatures tomorrow will be almost balmy… at least relative to the season. Highs are expected to range from the upper 30s in parts of western Maine to the 60s in Virginia. Maxima in the 50s will be common from Pennsylvania through southern New England.



Mild, dry conditions will dominate the South tomorrow with temperatures at springtime levels except for portions of northern Texas and northern Oklahoma. There, highs will be limited to the 50s. Elsewhere, maxima in the 60s and 70s will be widespread. Spots in far south Texas and central Florida could do even better, possibly topping 80. Central Florida could see an isolated shower or two, too, but sunshine will be the dominant weather feature throughout the South.
