Snowfall Expected in Several Parts of the Country

Bryan Dijkhuizen

A low-pressure system will move along the Southeast coast and away from the area in the evening.

The East Coast

After moving into the Atlantic Ocean overnight, this system may bring rain showers and thunderstorms to sections of the East Coast today and tomorrow morning.

Another storm, which is moving over the Upper Midwest, may provide light snow showers across the Great Lakes region tonight and Wednesday.

Snow in the Northeast

Because of the strengthening of this storm beginning tomorrow, snow rates will increase throughout western and northern Maine sections, resulting in an accumulation of 6-10 inches of snow by Wednesday evening in some areas.

Over sections of New England's interior, a little freezing rain may mix with the other precipitation.

Over the next several days, persistent troughing in the western United States will add to a danger of severe mountain snowfall and moderate coastal and low elevation rains.

Snowfall in the Cascades

Snowfall in the Cascades and the Sierra Nevada is expected to range between 2-4 feet, with isolated places receiving more than that. Through Thursday, most Northern Rockies will get between 1-2 feet of snow. Certain areas of southern Washington may get some light freezing rain as well.

Scattered snow and rain will move south throughout most of California on Wednesday, particularly Thursday when the most significant snowfall is forecast to fall over the Sierra Nevada mountains.

Precipitation on the West Coast

By Thursday night, several regions around the West Coast will have received 2 inches or more of precipitation in total. Winds will increase up tomorrow due to the arrival of a low-pressure surface system in Wyoming and Nebraska, and humidity will stay low.

Critical fire risk will be in force for southeastern Wyoming and northwestern Nebraska sections.

Because of a high-pressure dome moving into the area, temperatures will gradually climb above average throughout the Great Plains over the following several days.
