A Look Ahead
Fairly calm conditions are expected across the country for the next several days. A few showers may develop from the Great Lakes southward into Louisiana along a stalled front on Wednesday. As an area of low pressure moves into New England on Thursday, rain will increase across the Northeast; some light snow or freezing rain may mix in overnight. This activity should come to an end early Friday. An area of low pressure moving into the Pacific Northwest on Friday may bring some light rain to the region, as well as some snow over portions of the Northern Rockies. This activity will increase in coverage on Saturday as the upper level low approaches. A cold front may move across the Plains early next week, allowing for a potential for light snow from the Upper Midwest into the Missouri Valley.
