Unsettled weather will continue in parts of West tomorrow

An upper-level storm drifting into the Great Basin tomorrow will deliver scattered rain and (mountain) snow showers to the Intermountain West. Some isolated areas of heavy snow are possible in the higher reaches of the Colorado Rockies, Tetons and Wasatch. Meanwhile, a new upper-air system lurking off the West Coast may deliver some light rain or showers to the Pacific Coast north of San Francisco, although the forecast is a bit problematical. Low clouds and fog seem likely to linger in the Puget Sound and Oregon's Willamette Valley, especially during the morning hours. High temperatures are expected to range from a bit blow seasonal means in parts of the Southwest to well above in Montana. (Much colder air from Canada will plunge into Montana on Wednesday, however.)



A chilly high pressure ridge will dominate the Northeast tomorrow with temperatures well below seasonal means. Subfreezing readings are expected tonight and early tomorrow across virtually all of the region with lows ranging from the teens in Upstate New York and much of northern New England to near 32 in eastern Virginia and the DelMaVa Peninsula. Highs tomorrow are predicted to range from the upper 20s at a few spots in far northern New England to the 50s in Virginia.



A warming southerly flow will prevail over most of the Midwest and Plains tomorrow as a chilly high pressure center shifts eastward. Sunshine will dominate most of the region with high temperatures ranging from the 40s near the Great Lakes to the 60s in Missouri and Great Plains. The Plains' warmth will disappear rapidly on Wednesday, however, as much colder air dives southward out of Canada.



Other than a few showers riding an easterly flow into southern Florida tomorrow, the South should remain sunny and dry. High temperatures will range from a bit below seasonal norms in the Carolinas and eastern Georgia to near or slightly above elsewhere. Look for maxima in the 50s in North Carolina and northern South Carolina. On the other end of the spectrum, the low 80s will prevail in far south Texas and southwest Florida.


No tropical activity is occurring in any of the world's ocean basins as the tropical weather season winds down, so I will not make any tropical weather posts today.
