A milder pattern to come

Dangerously cold weather from the Plains to the East Coast will lose its punch as the week progresses.

The remainder of Monday will feature the Midwest’s harshest cold, followed on Tuesday by the East’s lowest temperatures. Tuesday, sub-zero temperatures can be expected again as far south as the Ozark Plateau, with readings below 0° also likely in the Appalachians. Frigid weather will persist through mid-week in the upper Midwest, where readings below -30° will linger through Wednesday. Rapid warming will occur during the second half of the week, with above-normal temperatures expected in the eastern half of the U.S. by week’s end. Significant precipitation will be scarce, except in the Northeast during the rest of Monday and Northwest, starting Tuesday. 

Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook calls for near- to above-normal temperatures nationwide, with the greatest likelihood of warm weather in the eastern U.S. Meanwhile, above-normal precipitation from the Mississippi Valley eastward and across the nation’s northern tier will contrast with drier-than-normal weather from California to the central and southern High Plains.
