Temps to vary; an active pattern to return

The coldest weather has likely passed for Southeastern producers concerned about freeze damage to fruit and nut crops, as well as winter wheat, nursery crops, and ornamentals. However, some additional frost may occur on Friday morning, especially in the southern Atlantic States. Farther north, a fast-moving disturbance will produce some late-week rain and snow from the Midwest into the Northeast, as well as some rain showers across the interior Southeast. Meanwhile, very warm, mostly dry weather will persist through the weekend from California to the Plains. Elsewhere, wet weather will return to the Northwest during the weekend, followed by a southward push of precipitation into parts of California by early next week.

Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook calls for the likelihood of near- to above-normal temperatures and precipitation across most of the country. The greatest odds of warm weather can be expected across the South, while wetness will be most likely in California. Exceptions to the warm, wet pattern should include cool weather in California and the Great Lakes and Northeastern States, and mostly dry weather across the Deep South from Texas to Florida.
