The nation will be lacking in major storms during the several days, although a series of Canadian-origin, clipper-type” systems will traverse the Midwest and Northeast. Five-day precipitation totals could exceed a half inch in a few spots, primarily downwind of the Great Lakes due to persistent snow squalls. Dry weather will cover the remainder of the U.S., except for a few showers along the Gulf Coast. Temperatures will remain elevated for this time of year in much of the West, with warmth briefly expanding across the Plains during the weekend. In contrast, several surges of cold air will affect the Midwest and East.
Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook calls for below-normal temperatures across the eastern half of the U.S., while warmer-than-normal weather will prevail in most areas from the Pacific Coast to the High Plains. Meanwhile, drier-than-normal conditions across the majority of the country will contrast with near- to above-normal precipitation from the northern Plains into the Northeast.
