Still unsettled in West tomorrow

Cool, unsettled weather will continue in the western U. S. tomorrow with the focus of the discontent shifting into Arizona and the Intermountain West. Heavy showers are expected to fall in parts of Arizona and the lower elevations of eastern Utah and western Colorado. Heavy snow is likely in the mountains of central Idaho and Utah, and forecast to develop eastward into the Colorado Rockies. Up to three feet of snow may ultimately bury some of the higher ranges in Utah. Temperatures will continue to run below late-October averages with some mountain locations stuck in the 30s. The only real warmth will be found in eastern Colorado, eastern and southern New Mexico, and the lower Colorado River Valley where readings will push into the 70s.



An area of moisture circulating around a large upper-air ridge parked over the Gulf Coast tomorrow will bring scattered showers and thundershowers to a good chunk of the South. The area under wet-threat includes Arkansas, Tennessee, the Deep South east of the Mississippi, and far northern Florida. Louisiana will remain dry as should most of Texas and Oklahoma, although spotty showers or thundershowers may pop up here and there. Maximum temperatures are forecast to range from slightly below seasonal means in the Carolinas to well above elsewhere; and as has been the case for the last several days, a few record highs may occur in Texas and Louisiana.



Much of the Plains should remain dry tomorrow (although North Dakota is a bit of a question) as should the eastern Midwest. It's in between where problems, in the form of scattered showers, may arise. From Missouri northward to the Upper Midwest, generally light precipitation may blossom in a warm, moist southerly air flow driven by developing low pressure over the High Plains. Temperatures will be unseasonably mild all across the Midwest and Plains with highs ranging from the 50s to the 70s, north to south. A few places in Kansas could top 80.



High pressure dominating the Northeast tomorrow will produce fair, seasonably cool weather. High temperatures are expected to range from the 40s in northern New England and Upstate New York to the 60s in much of Virginia.
