A Look Ahead
Generally quiet conditions are expected for much of the country through the end of the week. A few showers may develop across the Southeast ahead of a front on Friday. To the west, a cold front is expected to move into the Pacific Northwest, bringing light rain to portions of Washington and Oregon, as well as snow to the Cascades. As the front continues to progress eastward on Saturday, rain and snow are expected from portions of northern California northeastward into Montana. Into Sunday, a few showers and thunderstorms may develop across portions of Texas and Louisiana. An area of low pressure will move into the High Plains on Sunday, bringing the potential for snow across portions of the Dakotas and Wyoming.
Early next week, a strong cold front associated with an area of low pressure over the Northern Plains will extend from Minnesota into Northern Texas. Showers and possibly some thunderstorms may develop ahead of the front. There will also be the potential for snow across the Colorado Rockies Monday into Tuesday. As the cold front across the Plains continues to push eastward, rain is likely from the Northeast southwestward into Texas by the middle of next week.
