Cool weather will linger this weekend across the eastern U.S., although the threat of additional frost will be confined to the interior Northeast.
By early next week, warmth will temporarily cover much of the U.S. However, chilly weather—but not as cold as the recent cold snap—will return to the Midwest by mid- next week.
Meanwhile, a series of weak, fast-moving disturbances will result in scattered showers across much of the country. During the next 5 days, precipitation totals in excess of an inch may occur in the Great Lakes region, the Pacific Northwest, and from the southeastern Plains into the Mid-South.
The 6- to 10-day outlook for calls for near- to above-normal temperatures and near- to below-normal precipitation across most of the Nation.
