Sunshine, seasonal warmth on the increase...
Much of the country will experience a relatively quiet week of weather. During the early- to mid-week period, showers will gradually shift from southern portions of the Rockies and Plains into Florida. Elsewhere, precipitation will be mostly confined to the Pacific Northwest.
Late in the week, however, a new storm system will produce rain and snow across parts of the Rockies, Plains, and the upper Midwest. Until that storm develops, cooler-than-normal conditions will be mostly confined to the South.
Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook calls for colder-than-normal weather from the Rockies to the Appalachians, while near- to above-normal temperatures will prevail in the southern Atlantic States and the Far West. Meanwhile, near- to below-normal precipitation is expected across the majority of the U.S.
