Cold, tranquil pattern underway
Cold weather will prevail for the remainder of the week from the Plains to the East Coast, except for some late-week warmth across the nation’s southern tier. Relatively quiet weather will accompany the cold conditions, although snow squalls will continue downwind of the Great Lakes.
During the second half of the week, a snow storm will take shape across the northern and central Rockies and adjacent High Plains.
Toward week’s end, some rain and snow showers will spread eastward across the central Plains and into the Mid-South.
Elsewhere, cool, stormy weather will return to California by week’s end.
The 6- to 10-day outlook calls for a continuation of cold weather from the Plains to the East Coast, while near-normal temperatures will prevail in the West.
